    Numerous Ottawa long-term care homes could be on a secret government list of facilities considered “medium risk” or “high risk” but it’s impossible to know how many or which homes, because the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care is staying quiet.
    Despite pressure from the provincial auditor general to “provide the public with better information for decision-making on long-term care homes,” the ministry has refused to release information about which of Ottawa’s 27 long-term care homes are considered high or medium risk, saying it plans to make more information available online so people can compare the performance of long-term care homes.
