Emergency Departments at Horizon’s regional hospitals are extremely short staffed this weekend and priority will be given to trauma and critical care patients. Patients with non-urgent medical issues may experience long wait times.

Violence and aggression toward staff

We ask anyone who visits our facilities to be respectful to our staff, who are working hard to keep people safe and healthy. The increase in COVID-19 cases and added restrictions in the province has resulted in high tension for everyone. Please be kind to your health care providers. They are here to help you and require your cooperation, patience and support to be able to do so.

Horizon is committed to the prevention of workplace violence and takes every reasonable precaution to provide a safe, secure and violence-free work environment.

Staff are provided with a number of tools, supports and resources through Horizon’s Workplace Violence Prevention program.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we protect the safety of our patients, clients, staff, and communities.
