The queue-jumping scandal in Alberta Health Services highlights the public’s right to know how decisions are made in Alberta’s health care system. For a review on the scandal, see an Alberta Prime Time interview of Mark Ammann of Alberta’s Health Law Institute.
RMCLA previously called for a public inquiry of Alberta Health Services for several reasons, including intimidation of health care workers who speak out or criticize Alberta Health Services.
The latest scandal about queue-jumping adds fuel to the fire. Albertans’ have a right to know what is going on in Alberta Health Services. The allegations of intimidation of health care workers and queue-jumping should be investigated at a full public inquiry with the right to call witnesses and compel testimony.
