AHS staffing issues continue

Alberta Health Services [AHS] continues to have issues with lack of staff resulting in services being disrupted.
AHS announced April 16 a temporary obstetrics and operating room closure at the Peace River Community Health Centre April 16 from 7:30 a.m. to April 17 at 1 p.m. due to a gap in staff coverage.
If necessary, obstetrics patients were diverted to the Grande Prairie Regional Hospital. The same applied to patients requiring the operating room.
AHS describes the situation as a “temporary measure taken as a last resort.”
Recent closures have also occurred in Barrhead, High Prairie, Wabasca and McLennan.
