Another 24 Hour Doctor Shortage At Fairview Emergency Room

Once again, there will be no emergency doctors for a period of time at the Fairview Health Complex.

Alberta Health Services says the emergency department will temporarily be without physician coverage today.

Coverage is expected to return at 7 a.m. tomorrow.

During that time, the nursing staff will provide triage and assessments and will refer patients to emergency departments in surrounding communities as needed.

EMS calls will be rerouted to Peace River, Grimshaw and Spirit River.

The Fairview Health Complex has been in a similar situation multiple times this year.
