Up Close: COVID-19 Units at Hamilton General Hospital
At Hamilton General Hospital, two units have been designated to care for COVID-19 patients: 8 West and ICU South. By grouping these patients together, we reduce the risk of spreading the virus throughout our hospitals.
Each unit is staffed by a dedicated team. These professionals have had to adapt quickly to new routines, precautions and procedures to take the best possible care of their patients and themselves. Their bravery, skill, and compassion is outstanding.
Since receiving our first COVID-positive patient in March, staff across Hamilton Health Sciences have cared for more than 60 people with this disease. These photos provide an inside look at just a sliver of their hard work on the Hamilton General Hospital COVID units.
