The Regional Order of Nurses of Montreal/Laval (ORIIML) has awarded a regional prize in innovation to SAPA Home Care (SAPA SAD) for their recently launched rapid-response and assessment program for clients of our CLSCs who exhibit flu-like symptoms.

This new service allows elderly clients to access urgent frontline services in their home, sparing vulnerable individuals numerous visits to hospital emergency departments.

The project highlights nursing expertise in home support as well as a full spectrum of practice within the nursing field, in providing emergency access to front-line services.

The initiative is constantly evolving to expand the range of more acute services and better meet the needs of our clients within their home.

The project is in the running for a national prize, which will be announced in the fall 2024.
