ER Closure in Tatamagouche on Tuesday

The emergency department at the Lillian Fraser Memorial Hospital Collaborative Emergency Centre will be closed during daytime hours Tuesday.

The Nova Scotia Health Authority says the 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. closure is due to a lack of physician coverage.

Overnight coverage provided by the paramedic, registered nurse and oversight physician team will be available as usual.

Patients with emergencies will be redirected to the Colchester East Hants Health Centre or the most appropriate emergency department during the 12-hour closure.
