Be sure to check out this UHN News story on how Toronto's Virtual Emergency Department helped an 88-year-old woman get the care she needed. Struggling with a suspected urinary tract infection and unable to meet with her family doctor or receive care at a walk-in clinic, Betty Morrell was at a loss on what to do next. Her daughter, recently retired UHN nurse practitioner Sue DeVries, turned to the Virtual ED at UHN – an online portal offering same-day virtual appointments for Ontarians over 18 with urgent but non-life-threatening conditions. Sue was able to secure an appointment for her mother within an hour and, about 24 hours after the virtual visit, Betty got the antibiotics she needed. Since its launch in 2020, more than 3,000 Ontarians have benefited from the Virtual ED and 80 per cent of patients are managed without the need for an in-person ED visit.
