Longer than usual wait times at RMH; look for alternatives where possible
Ross Memorial Hospital is advising of longer than usual wait times in our Emergency Department today due to high patient volumes.
The hospital’s Surgical South and Rehab units were declared in COVID-19 outbreak on October 12 by the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit.
Patients with less urgent conditions are implored to consider alternate options for care such as their primary health care provider, pharmacist, after-hours clinic, virtual care, or calling Telehealth Ontario at 1-866-797-0000. After-hours clinics can often treat non-urgent and minor illnesses and ailments, such as earaches, sore throats or prescription refills.
Ross Memorial Health-Care professionals are working hard to see patients as quickly as possible.
