Nursing and Personal Care : Funding Increase Survey

July 16, 2003


Introduction

In July of 2002, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care announced an increase in funding to the nursing and personal care envelope (NPC) for provincially funded long-term care facilities. The increase took effect on August 1, 2002, and totaled $100M. For individual facilities, this meant an increase of $6.33 per day per resident assuming a Case Mix Index (CMI) of 100.2

The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care commissioned Sigma-3 Policy Research Inc. to carry out a survey of long-term care facilities. The purpose of the survey was to determine how the increase was used, assess the human resource changes from before to after the increase, and to identify any associated improvements that benefited facility residents.
