Asthma care in Canada taken care of by Hamilton!

The Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) has released a report that praises Hamilton- area hospitals for great asthma care .

This was based on the fact that majority of cases are admitted there and they return to the emergency department within 28 days of being discharged.

In the words of Dr. Malcolm Sears, research director of the Firestone Institute for Respiratory Health, 'I'm delighted. I'm not surprised. We've focused a lot on asthma.'

Supporting the idea was Indra Pulcins, director of health reports and analysis at CIHI, 'It may not sound like a huge drop, but it's certainly a very meaningful drop. It means the quality of care for people who have had a heart attack has been improving.'

The one point is that these areas face an acute shortage of family docs. This is due to the fact that home and community care has given way to hospitalisation.

Another statement by Sears, 'The reason why children come back to the hospital is when it's managed as today's problem and people are not as concerned with the long-term care.'

So this is one area which is giving hospitals and healthcare a stiff competition.
