Here are the details provided by CISSS de l’Outaouais:
Obstetrics nursing staff will be sporadically present during the weekend, which does not ensure the complete and safe coverage of the service.
Patients in labor will be redirected, after being evaluated at the Pontiac Hospital, to the Gatineau Hospital.
In the event that a pregnant woman presents herself for imminent delivery, there will be qualified personnel to provide care and the mother will then be transferred to the Gatineau hospital.
Expectant mothers who could be affected by this break in service have been notified.
The CISSS de l’Outaouais wishes to point out that this situation is temporary and that the return to normal is scheduled for Monday, October 14th at 8 pm.
