During a press briefing in front of the Cité de la Santé in Laval, the chief caquist presented this proposal as “an innovative way of caring for patients”.
Concretely, patients whose state of health no longer necessarily requires hospitalization could, on a voluntary basis, be sent home to be monitored virtually or in person by a team of caregivers, as the case may be.
