Springhill ER open Saturday night

Hospital emergency department

The Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA) says the emergency department at All Saints Springhill Collaborative Emergency Department will remain open Saturday night.

Last week, the NSHA said the department was going to be shut down between 8:00 p.m. Saturday and 8:00 a.m. Sunday due to a shortage of nursing coverage.

The Health Authority has since revised the closure schedule, saying the ER will remain open during the overnight hours.

Overnight coverage is provided by the paramedic/registered nurse/oversight physician team.

Anyone experiencing a medical emergency should call 911.
