No overnight Emergency Department at Regina's Pasqua Hospital for Next 3 Months
According to a latest report, due to a shortage of physicians, the Pasqua Hospital in Regina is facing an overnight shut down of about 12.5 hours of the emergency department.
This shutdown is reported to start from the 28th of November and will be extended to at least three more months in a row.
The officials say that the shutdown of the emergency department will start at about 7:30 pm in the evening. They also say that the services of the ER will be resumed at about 8:00 am.
This means that the patients will be either accepted before 7:30 pm in the evening or after 8:00 am in the morning.
Sources reveal that during the hours of shut down if any emergency patient comes then he or she will be straight away sent to the general block. The general block of the Pasqua Hospital is about ten blocks away, according to the medics.
RQHR Vice-President Dr. David McCutcheon says that they cannot under-provide in a trauma centre. He also said, "Despite the best efforts of our management, physicians and staff, this reduction in services has become necessary in order to ensure that we can continue to provide safe, quality care to our patients".
