The Laurent-Bergevin center located in L’Île-Perrot, is facing an outbreak of Covid-19 both among its residents and for its nursing staff.
According to our information, which is confirmed by the Integrated Health and Social Services Center of Montérégie-Ouest (CISSMO), the seniors’ center has 35 infected residents out of the 80 who reside there. Infected residents are not transported to other centers. These are kept on site where a red zone has been erected. CISSMO deplores a death due to this Covid-19 outbreak.
The accommodation center and the CISSMO reaffirm that all patients are well cared for according to their state of health. Since the start of this outbreak, communications have been sent to family members of patients to reassure them.
In addition, 15 employees are also affected by coronavirus disease. This puts great pressure on the employees who continue to work at the accommodation center. As a result, they have to work a lot of overtime due to lack of staff.
CISSMO remains on the lookout for any changes and monitors the loan situation.
