The Province has ordered Joseph Brant Hospital take over managing a long-term care home in Mississauga.
Today (November 25), the Ministry of Long-Term Care announced it had issued a Mandatory Management Order yesterday for the Burlington hospital to temporarily take over management of Tyndall Nursing Home.
The decision was made due to the fact the facility has an increasing number of COVID-19 cases among both residents and staff, and the Province determined additional oversight and management was necessary to help mitigate the spread of the virus, protect residents, and allow the facility to return to normal operations.
“Protecting our long-term care home residents, who are most vulnerable, is our top priority,” Merrilee Fullerton, Minister of Long-Term Care, said in a news release.
“We are grateful to the staff at Joseph Brant Hospital and Tyndall Nursing Home for working together to stabilize the home and stop the COVID-19 outbreak,” she continued.
The hospital will be managing Tyndall Nursing Home for 90 days from the date the order was issued.
