TORONTO FOOT CLINIC SOLVES IT PROBLEM WITH OPERATING AN X-RAY FACILITY ON-SITE!

WHAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN A SLAM DUNK REGARDING ORDERING, OWNING AND OPERATING AN X-RAY MACHINE AS THE HARP LEGISLATION IS PRESENTLY WRITTEN HAS RESULTED IN MANY UNNECESSARY ROADBLOCKS FROM ONTARIO PODIATRISTS, THE COLLEGE OF CHIROPODISTS OF ONTARIO AND NOW THE DIRECTOR OF THE MOHLTC, X-RAY DIVISION, AS PER THE WISHES OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE CoCoO AND HAVE THUS FAR PREVENTED ME FROM OPERATING MY NEW X-RAY DEPARTMENT.

I, DR. HARDY OWNED AND OPERATED MY OWN X-RAY MACHINE SINCE 1980 UNTIL I RETIRED IN 2010.  I THEN DONATED MY X-RAY TO A NEW GRAD AS IT WAS REALLY TOO POWERFUL FOR FOOT X-RAYS.  IT WAS A REAL WORKHORSE AND ALWAYS CHECKED OUT WITH THE MINISTRY OF HEALTH 100% AFTER 1000'S OF X-RAYS.

FINALLY, I AM EMPLOYING A COLLEAGUE WHOM I NURTURED AND SUPPORTED THROUGH SCHOOL TO BE MY RPO, RADIATION PROTECTION OFFICER WHO WILL WORK PART-TIME AT MY TORONTO FOOT CLINIC.  THIS WILL BE A GREAT BENEFIT FOR ALL OF OUR PATIENTS AS ALL OF THE 4 CHIROPODISTS THAT I EMPLOY WILL NOW HAVE THE VERY POWERFUL DIAGNOSTIC TOOL OF X-RAY AVAILABLE FOR THEIR PATIENTS.  WHERE THERE IS A WILL, THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY.   WE ARE STILL APPEALING OUR DECISION FROM THE MOHLTC WHICH HAS THUS FAR DENIED OUR APPLICATION WHILE QUOTING NON-EXISTENT LEGISLATION, VERY BIZARRE.  THERE ARE MANY THINGS WHICH EXIST IN THIS TINY PROFESSION  OF 50 PODIATRISTS AND 550 CHIROPODISTS IN ONTARIO THAT ARE REALLY UNBELIEVABLE.
