La Croix-Rouge en renfort dans deux CHSLD de Trois-Rivières

THREE RIVERS | The canadian Red Cross has deployed, at the request of the CIUSSS of the Mauricie and Centre-du-Québec, in two NURSING homes of Trois-Rivières to lend a helping hand to employees overwhelmed by the pandemic, learned VAT News.

Until last week, teams were deployed in the CHSLD Cloutier-du-Rivage and Saint-Joseph, the two most affected by the COVID-19 in Trois-Rivières. The four employees have spent five days in the Mauricie region, and their term ended on may 25.

The employees of the Red Cross had to tasks to support the institutions and analyze the protocols that are in place to prevent the spread of the virus. Recommendations to protect both workers and residents were to be issued.

Up to now, the teams of the Red Cross have been deployed in 52 sites, including these two CHSLD de Trois-Rivières.

The coronavirus has been particularly virulent at the CHSLD Cloutier-du-Rivage, where half of the recipients have been infected, including 48 patients who have succumbed to the disease.

The coordinator in the prevention and control of epidemics has highlighted the hard work of the caregivers in a context where there is a lack of arms.
