Toronto (June 4, 2003) - The Emergency Department at Toronto General Hospital (TGH), University Health Network opened as of 8:00 a.m. today to all patients.
In addition, yesterday the Provincial Operating Committee adjusted the hospital status to a Category 1 from a Category 2. Toronto General Hospital is remaining vigilant and continuing its precautions of written SARS evaluation forms and the taking of temperature of all staff, patients who come to the hospital, and visitors. In addition, patients and visitors who come into the hospital are required to wear masks.
The decision was made to close Emergency on Tuesday May 27, 2003. About 30 staff from Emergency were sent home on quarantine because they had cared for a patient who was later diagnosed with SARS, and did so without some pieces of protective equipment. The home quarantine of so many staff meant that there was insufficient staff available to safely care for the normal volume of patients. The TGH Emergency sees about 80 patients a day.
Staff returning to work today have all passed the 10-day incubation period for SARS.
