Fears a Covid-positive mum desperate to see her infected son in intensive care exposed DOZENS of patients in a Sydney emergency room to the virus
There are fears a Covid-positive mother who was desperate to see her critically-ill son may have infected dozens of patients in the emergency room of a Sydney hospital.
The worrying breach reportedly occurred on Saturday night at the Northern Beaches Hospital when the women tried to visit her son, aged in his 30s, who was also suffering from coronavirus.
He had been rushed from his home in Belrose to the emergency department after his condition rapidly deteriorated, 9News reported.
‘He was immediately treated in the emergency department (ED) in a negative pressure room by staff in full personal protective equipment,’ The Northern Beaches Hospital said.
‘The man was intubated in the ED and transferred to a negative pressure room in the intensive care unit.’
More to come.
