Keeping track of COVID activity
Our Business Intelligence Tool, Daisy, has been providing a daily report on COVID activity both in the hospital and at the Assessment Centre. Below is its report from this morning on testing of inpatients and ED patients over the past two weeks. Dark green indicates negative result, light green is positive and grey is results pending.
Resources and Supplies
More thermometers available for purchase
All staff should be monitoring themselves for symptoms of any illness and taking their temperature at least twice per day. These days, drug stores are often out of thermometers so a supply has been set up for staff to buy. The thermometers are available at switchboard for $14, tax included. They are for staff purchase only – first come, first served.
