Mr. Trainor:

Is it not true, Mr. Chairman, that this assistance will be forthcoming from the federal government to the provinces provided any portion of the assistance given by the province is given to the individual rather than to the institution; it does not have to be all given to the institutions.

Mr. Trainor:

I should like to ask the minister if that does not constitute an incentive for the provinces to make their contributions to individuals rather than to institutions?

Mr. Trainor:

This provides that if the money is paid by the province or the municipality directly to the hospital, the institution is not eligible. When it is paid to the individual, then the institution becomes eligible. It seems to me that this will greatly encourage the use of subterfuge on the part of municipal and provincial governments, which might switch from a method of financial support directly to the institution to the individual, and in that case the individual would be required to pay directly to the institution.

Mr. Trainor:

It seems to me, as the hon. member for Lanark has pointed out, that the term "nursing home" really demands more definite definition, because in most provinces of the country the nursing home is to a degree synonymous with a hospital, perhaps a hospital of a lower grade. Most of the people in a nursing home are ill. Some of them, or a fair proportion of them, care for the chronically ill but not the acutely ill. Nevertheless they are people who require nursing and medical care. Unless this legislation is going to conflict with the proposed hospital legislation I think there should be a complete definition of the term "nursing home".
