A doctor asks for help in solving bed crisis

Dr. Landau's letter concerning cancelled surgeries at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Regional Hospital should now become priority No. 1 for the Department of Health.

I witnessed first hand during my wife's extended stay at the hospital. These dedicated professionals are hamstrung by the lack of beds because the hospital is overcrowded with seniors who have no place to be cared for.
