Quinte Health Care has seen several days of what is called gridlock.
At Tuesday’s Board of Directors meeting, CEO Mary Clare Egberts told members they were often running over capacity.
She says 12 days over the past six weeks have been considered gridlock, which means there are no beds available.
Egberts says in some cases they were over 130% capacity.
She adds that although they have picked up a 1% inflation increase from the province, it is still below inflation.
She adds they are not alone, as hospitals in Kingston, Peterborough, Mississauga, Hamilton and Windsor have seen the same issue.
