Vitalité Health Network says it is continuing its “root cause analysis” of the incident that resulted in the death of a person at the Edmundston Regional Hospital on Sunday.
In a release today, the Network says traffic and wait times at the Emergency Department were not above standard, there were enough resources and skills available to safely manage the patient, and all triage processes were completed properly.
