What is the difference between in-home assessment and orthopedic assessment?

Ontario, Canada


The following excerpt is from M.C.S. v Scottish & York, 2019 CanLII 119768 (ON LAT):

Based on my review of the evidence, it appears that the applicant was not referred to see any specialists for her pain-related complaints. If the applicant’s pain related conditions were as serious as it has been alleged, then I would expect she would be referred to a specialist for further investigation and treatment. The fact that this did not happen leads me to believe that her pain-related complaints are not as serious as she purports them to be. In-home assessment v. orthopedic assessment
