The province’s Progressive Conservatives say a cancer patient’s daily commute between two Halifax area hospitals for treatment is unacceptable.
In a news release, the Tories say Millie Johnson, who was recently diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a cancer that affects white blood cells, is a patient at the Dartmouth General Hospital
The crucial treatment is only done at the Victoria General in Halifax, but there’s no bed, hence the commute.
PC MLA of Dartmouth East Tim Halaman says “this is completely unacceptable. I have reached out to Minister Delorey multiple times requesting a bed at the VG for Millie.”
He continues, “Nova Scotia’s healthcare system must be more responsive to patients’ needs. The Minister has an opportunity to improve Millie’s current situation by taking action now.”
In a release it says, Halman believes this situation is a byproduct of a healthcare system in crisis.
“I know from experience how important it is to receive the proper treatment at the right time and place when battling cancer,” says Halman.
“We must do better and treat patients in our system with respect. The Liberal government can’t ignore this family, or any other family who is going through this.”
