Steep increase in hospital bed occupancy

The Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) reports that in 1995-96, hospital bed occupancy in Canada was 84.7%.  As reported here earlier this week,  it was 97.9% in 2010 in Ontario.

Is it really any wonder we have problems with wait times, backlogs, cancelled surgeries, ambulance offload delay, and hospital acquired infections in Ontari, ari, ario?
