NSHA CL-EC-060 Emergency Department Closures

Description

Nova Scotia Health Emergency Departments (ED) are part of a single and increasingly integrated network of emergency care. Not all sites operate 24 hours a day and some sites close from time to time; this policy and procedure applies to all closures (expected or unexpected). 
This document provides direction for a consistent, collaborative approach when managing ED closures across the province.
