Thursday, January 23, 2014 — Deron Hamel

OMNI Health Care president and CEO Patrick McCarthy dropped by the Axiom News offices this afternoon to discuss how the organization keeps residents safe in an environment that’s seeing more residents with aggressive behaviours.

In his videotaped interview, McCarthy discussed with Axiom News CEO Peter Pula the training and processes OMNI’s 18 long-term care homes have in place to create a safe environment for residents. The province’s Behavioural Supports Ontario (BSO) initiative and OMNI’s Supportive Measures program were some of the highlights of the discussion.
