Retirement home regulator revokes licence of residence evacuated after COVID-19 ‘crisis’

Article from CBC News:

The Retirement Homes Regulatory Authority (RHRA) has issued an order to revoke the licence of the Rosslyn Retirement Residence in Hamilton, site of the city’s deadliest COVID-19 outbreak.

The decision came after “careful review and consideration” and was based on information gathered during inspections, complaints and reports from staff and the public, stated director of communications Kathryn Chopp in an email to CBC.

Even before it was emptied, inspections by public health and the RHRA identified issues around infection prevention and control and a “failure to protect residents from neglect” and ordered the home’s owner to make changes before it could reopen.
