Article content continued
AHS and Covenant Health are working as a team to tackle the outbreak.
“Activating the full facility outbreak is necessary at this time to protect patients, staff and physicians. We acknowledge the challenges these additional restrictions create for patients, families, staff and physicians,” said Dr. David Zygun, Medical Director, AHS Edmonton Zone, in the Wednesday news release.
“Ongoing transmission means that this is a necessary step to protect patients, staff and physicians and to ensure that the outbreak can be managed as efficiently and effectively as possible.”
The death of the 70-year-old man announced Tuesday brought the facility’s death toll to three. A death announced Monday at the Misericordia, also a man in his 70s, was officially added to the provincial numbers after an internal issue delayed its addition.
AHS had on Monday announced the Misericordia was closed to new admissions and transfers for medical and surgical patients. But the emergency room remained open and certain areas of the hospital, such as women’s health services, addiction and mental health services and critical care, remained open for patient care.
