Pugwash Emergency Department Closed Monday
The emergency department at the North Cumberland Hospital in Pugwash is closed tomorrow from 7 am to 7 pm.
You might think there is no doctor available to provide the service but this time it is a shortage of nurses. In fact, nurses are in short supply across the province, a problem that has been steadily growing in recent months.
The department will reopen Tuesday at 7 am.
Anyone with urgent medical needs should call 911.
For general health advice and information call 811, which is a service offered 24 hours a day, seven days a week by experienced registered nurses.
The Mental Health Crisis Line can also be reached 24/7 by calling 1-888-429-8167.
