When I established myself in a dialysis centre for treatment, I got to know the people who were at the centre with me. I have fond memories of the people I dialyzed with. I remember we had a competition of who would get to leave the dialysis centre first. People generally had to stay between 3 and 4 hours. I remember one time, one of the men who I dialyzed with got to leave earlier than usual, so he beat me out of there, but then he had to return 20 minutes later to pick up his backpack that he forgot!

Making this video was a journey not just at Ontario Shores but also at CIHI. It demonstrated the partnerships and added value of the interRAI assessment. It required collaboration and highlighted opportunities of how to do things differently for future efforts.
