The Curateur public represented a 73-year-old man housed in a healthcare institution that in the last four years had ceased to meet his needs. A transfer had been requested over two years earlier, but he still had not been moved.
This individual had mental health problems, was no longer independent, and had a mild intellectual disability. The complaint was filed by members of his family, who noted that the man was living in an inappropriate facility in a remote region that was difficult for them to reach for visits.
In response to this intervention, the man’s case was reclassified as a priority, allowing him to be moved to an appropriate facility as soon as a space became available.
