Chetwynd’s hospital will have limited emergency coverage

Chetwynd’s hospital will have limited emergency department coverage in August.

There will be nurses on-hand to provide initial assessment and triage, but no doctors will be available for treatment.

Anyone needing emergency care can call 911, but will be sent to the emergency department in Dawson Creek or Fort St. John.

Unfortunately once discharged, it’ll be up to the individual to make their way back home.

Northern Health suggests using the Northern Health Connections bus service, but take note that service isn’t available for two weeks in August.

The Chetwynd Hospital emergency department is the only department affected by these closures, the rest of the hospital will remain open.

The dates with limited physician coverage are:

·       July 31, 2015 5:00 p.m. to August 2, 2015 8:00 a.m.

·       August 4, 2015 5:00 p.m. to August 5, 2015 8:00 a.m.

·       August 7, 2015 5:00 p.m. to August 9, 2015 at 10:00 a.m.

·       August 19, 2015 at 12:00 a.m. (midnight) to August 21, 2015 8:00 a.m.

·       August 21, 2015 at 5:00 p.m. to August 23, 2015 at 8:00 a.m.

·       August 26, 2015 at 5:00 p.m. to August 27, 2015 at 8:00 a.m.
