Manitoba to implement “all recommendations” in Maples LTC review after deadly COVID-19 outbreak

Following the release of an external review into the deadly COVID-19 outbreak at Maples Long Term Care Home in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Health and Seniors Care Minister Heather Stefanson said they take the recommendations “very seriously” and that work has already begun on many of the recommendations.

“We’re committed to implementing all recommendations within this report,” Stefanson said, adding that she has directed her department to assemble a team that will establish a plan to implement all recommendations, which she said would be publicly released within 30 days.

The embattled Maples care home has been in the news throughout the COVID-19 pandemic after dozens of deaths — including seven residents in a two-day period in November — and concerns about whether residents were receiving adequate care.

Stefanson said the province also intends to work to strengthen and improve the long-term care sector across Manitoba in light of the heavy impact care homes have taken during the COVID-19 pandemic.
