Quick Response Team

The purposes of the Quick Response Team (QRT) are threefold:

  • To prevent avoidable hospital admission.
  • To provide crisis intervention at home.
  • To facilitate early hospital discharge.

In the Capital Region, the Quick Response Team’s services include urgent assessment, treatment and consultation through a multi- disciplinary team including physiotherapists, occupational therapists, social workers, nurses and home support workers.

Hours of service are from 8 AM – 11 PM daily. Referrals to the QRT come from health care providers only.

QRT services are provided free of charge (with the exception of QRT home support, for which care receivers may pay in keeping with LTC home support provisions).
