ER closures in Pugwash, Tatamagouche & Springhill this week

ER Closure

The Nova Scotia Health authority says the emergency department in Pugwash will be closed during daytime hours all this week.

The North Cumberland Collaborative Emergency Centre's ER will be closed Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday between 8 am & 8 pm, due to a lack of physician coverage.

The ER will be open through the overnight hours, as usual, with coverage provided by the paramedic/registered nurse/oversight physician team.

Meanwhile, the emergency department in Tatamagouche will be closed during the day Wednesday, while the Springhill ER will be closed between 8 am & 8 pm both Thursday and Friday.

A lack of physician coverage is behind those closures, as well.
