Auditor general Bonnie Lysyk says the Ontario government "needs to take a hard look" at the 2.4-billion-dollars spent annually by community care access centres. Lysyk says there are no standard protocols of care at the 14 CCAC's, which co-ordinate home-based nursing care, therapy and supports to about 700-thousand patients outside of hospitals. (The auditor claims that 92 per cent of CCAC spending goes to direct patient care, and says it's closer to 61 per cent when you define it as actual face-to-face treatment.)
