Queensway Carleton Hospital At Capacity-Code Orange

The Queensway Carleton Hospital says all in-patient care space has already filled beyond capacity and  has declared an internal code orange.

This is the second time in its history that the Queensway Carleton Hospital has used the internal code orange protocal. The first was in January of this year.

Hospital officials say they are seeing an unusually high number of admission for influenza this year. There have been more than 90 already.

The hospital also says there is an unusually high number of alternative levels of care patients. patients do not need to be in acute hospital care, but are not well enough to go home.

Officials are asking patients to only come to the hospital in an emergency, and to explore other options like walk-in clinics.
