Today, Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare along with help from Essex-Windsor EMS are working with staff at Augustine Villas to control a COVID-19 outbreak.

Beginning today, HDGH will be providing strategic direction, infection prevention and control and education, clinical collaboration in the care of residents, communications support, health assessment assistance, and structured reporting to regulatory authorities.

Essex-Windsor EMS placed a trailer on site to assist with this response. Joe Karb, Vice President of Restorative Care, will be on-site, along with other members of the HDGH team, as part of this interim arrangement as a lead management resource.

Both the hospital and Augustine Villas, with the support of the Retirement Homes Regulatory Authority (RHRA), Windsor Essex County Health Unit, and Ontario Health, have identified several priorities and the HDGH team plans to respond as quickly as possible to start identifying and assisting the Villa with their needs.

HDGH will assume responsibility for priorities such as infection prevention and control and education, reduction of virus spread, and stabilization of staffing resources.
