COVID-19: employees of CHSLD “fall one after the other” in Montreal-North

COVID-19: Des employés de CHSLD «tombent les uns après les autres» à Montréal-Nord

As in several of the hosting Centre of long-term care facilities (CHSLD) in Quebec, the Residence Angelica, located in Montreal-North, lives of the time exceedingly difficult, because of the COVID-19, with 134 residents on 350-contaminated COVID-19, in date of Saturday.

In this figure, and the 29 deaths that beset the CHSLD against the eight patients recovered, in addition to 80 cases of contamination within the staff.

At the direction of the ltc facility under the supervision of the CIUSSS of the North-of-The-Island-of-Montreal, told TVA News that the situation is under control; that, for the past two weeks, we received the aid of the CIUSSS and public Health of Quebec.

This opinion is not shared by the employees and some are clueless.

“It is absolute devastation,” says the president of the local union, Judith Germain, a registered nurse and team leader isolated at home because she contracted the COVID-19.

“People call me in tears, they are no longer able. Every day, people call me and say that they must go to the test [screening] because they have such-and-such a symptom. It is seen to fall with the employees one after the other. You are exhausted also in the face of what is happening at the level of the residents.”

In Quebec, three in charge to the beneficiaries perished as a result of contamination with the novel coronavirus, the last in date of Thursday, at the CHSLD Cartierville, another institution governed by the CIUSSS-du-Nord-de-L’île-de-Montréal.

Montreal-North is one of the boroughs affected by the pandemic of COVID-19 in Quebec or even in Canada.

As of may 1, 2020, a screening center, territorial has been opened to the symptomatic population capita Montréal-Nord, on the grounds of the hôpital Rivière-des-Prairies. The testing capacity is increased to one hundred in this area, on a daily basis.
