Quote:MONTREAL — Surgery wait times for deadly ovarian, cervical and breast cancers in Quebec are three times longer than government benchmarks, leading some desperate patients to shop around for an operating room.

But that’s a waste of time, doctors say, since the problem is spread across Quebec hospitals. And doctors are refusing to accept new patients quickly because they can’t treat them, health advocates say.

A leading Montreal gynecologist said that these days, she cannot look her patients in the eye because the wait times are so shocking. Lack of resources, including nursing staff and budget compressions, are driving a backlog of surgeries while operating rooms stand empty. The latest figures from the provincial government show that over a span of nearly 11 months, 7,780 patients in the Montreal area waited six months or longer for day surgeries, while another 2,957 waited for six months or longer for operations that required hospitalization.

The worst cases are gynecological cancers, experts say, because usually such a cancer has already spread by the time it is detected. Instead of four weeks from diagnosis to surgery, patients are waiting as long as three months to have cancerous growths removed.

“It’s a crisis for Quebec women,” said Lucy Gilbert, director of gynecological oncology and the gynecologic cancer multi-disciplinary team at the McGill University Health Centre. Her team has had access to operating rooms only two days a week for the past year, with dozens of patients having surgeries postponed week after week.

Patients are prioritized according to need, Gilbert said, but surgical delays are still too long.

I saw a blog post recently from a Canadian band that I follow. Their bass player injured his back and could not get any help out of the system up there. They were due to tour so they drove him to a hospital down here and got him treatment. Ultimately they had to reschedule one show.

Man, they're not going to learn anything. They think programs like this fail because THEY weren't in charge.

Progressives only care when it affects them,directly. They'll feel bad for you or your kid, say its anomaly, or say that you should be grateful for the care that got your kid this far.

In order for progressives to come around, they need to suffer by their own hand....without the opportunity to blame it on republicans.

Anyone can make numbers say whatever they want them to say.

You might try doing a little more research before posting this stuff.
