We are aware of the planned protests taking place outside of hospitals today. This is very concerning to all health-care workers and patients.

Please take a moment to read a brief thread.

Staff and physicians at The Ottawa Hospital have worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic to protect those most at risk in our community. They all deserve to come into work safely, free from risk or harm.

Those demonstrating outside of the hospital are putting not only staff and physicians at risk, but also the hundreds of patients who come to the hospital for care every day.

The hospital has increased its security presence, to protect staff, physicians and patients, and ensure that patient care is not impacted by the planned protests.

While we respect everyone’s right to free speech, we disagree with the position that these demonstrators have taken.

We encourage everyone to get vaccinated, as it is the best form of protection from serious illness, hospitalization and death due to COVID-19.

Hospitals have received tremendous community support throughout the pandemic; from food and coffee, to wonderful signs and messages. Now, the community can show their support for health-care workers by getting vaccinated.

It helps protect our health-care system from being overwhelmed, and ensures that health-care workers can continue to care for those most in need.

Thank you for your time!

Inspirés par @OttawaSante, nous voici sur Twitter pour vous parler de la situation dans notre hôpital et tous les autres hôpitaux de la région.

Nous vous prions de prendre le temps de lire ce message. [1/14]
Les cas de COVID-19 dans les hôpitaux sont inquiétants.
Le nombre de personnes hospitalisées, tout comme le nombre d’infections dans la collectivité, est en hausse continue. [2/14]
Habituellement, la montée en flèche des hospitalisations survient entre 7 et 10 jours après celle des cas dans la population.

Autrement dit, la pandémie ne ralentit pas. [3/14]

We’re taking a page from the book of @ottawahealth and using the trusty Twitter thread to share an update on the current COVID-19 situation in our hospital, and hospitals throughout the community.

Please take a minute to read this... [1/9]
The COVID-19 situation in hospitals is concerning.

Hospitalizations are rising steadily, as cases increase in the community. We often see a spike in hospitalizations 7-10 days after cases increase in the community.

This means there is no sign of things slowing down. [2/9]
Hospital staff are tired. They have been working hard throughout the pandemic to keep our community safe, but they are only human.

And with the increase in demand for health-care workers in hospitals and the community, they are stretched thin. [3/9]
