Number of Ontario hospital staff off work due to COVID nearly doubled since May

Jul 30, 2022

Almost 4,800 staff were off with the virus or had been recently exposed during week of July 16-22, according to data provided by Ontario Health. Sat., July 30, 2022timer3 min. read The number of Ontario hospital staff off work due to COVID-19 has nearly doubled since May, the first month the province started to track such absences during the pandemic. Almost 4,800 hospital staff were off sick with the virus or had been recently exposed during the week of July 16 to 22, according to data provided to the Star from Ontario Health. That’s up from 2,630 COVID absences during the week of May 21 to 27, an increase of 82 per cent. The swell of hospital workers off sick with COVID this summer has placed further stress on a health-care system that for months has struggled to maintain adequate staffing levels in many departments, including in ERs and intensive care units. As of Friday, 10 emergency departments have had to temporarily close at some point due to a shortage of nurses, according to data from Ontario Health released exclusively to the Star. July is the first time the province has tracked ER closures due to nursing shortages, a spokesperson for Ontario Health said. On Thursday, Lakeridge Health announced it had to close its Bowmanville Hospital intensive-care unit , moving critically ill patients to ICUs at its Ajax-Pickering and Oshawa sites. The statement from the Durham Region hospital system cited a “significant staff shortage” as the reason for the ICU closure. Earlier this month, Halton Healthcare in the GTA notified residents it had to temporarily scale back treatment areas in its ERs because it could not safely staff the entire departments. In a statement to the Star at the time, a spokesperson for the three-hospital network said it was experiencing “a higher rate of staff and physician absences due to isolation requirements following COVID-19 exposure, along with higher than usual vacancy rates.” As well, an ER in Perth, southwest of Ottawa, closed for almost three weeks in July. Michael Cohen, president and CEO of the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital, at the time told the Star that staff calling in sick with COVID worsened an existing shortage, especially among nurses. “That just tipped us over,” Cohen told the Star. “We were already in a very fragile staffing situation.” Ontario Health started to collect data on staff absences due to COVID at the end of May to track the impact on hospitals. In June, absences plateaued around 2,500 per week, then started to spike the first week of July. Some 4,787 staff were off work due to COVID the week of July 16 to 22. Toronto’s University Health Network, which includes three large teaching hospitals, had 487 job postings in June, said Gillian Howard, vice-president of public affairs and communications, in a statement. She noted some of those postings were from May and that the hospital network hired 420 staff in June, adding that July numbers were not yet available. RELATED STORIES
