Another problem arises after last week's water main break at Promedica Toledo Hospital. Staffers are now forced to close two upcoming tours of the third floor because of water damage and clean up efforts. The problem is the third floor holds labor and delivery!
That means new moms and dads wil not be able to attend the 7 p.m. tours on Wednesday, June 12th or Sunday, June 16th.
ProMedica Spokesperson Jared Mead said last week that 22 patients had to be transferred from their rooms after the water main broke.
The break happened during renovations on the fifth floor of the Legacy South Side building. The water line was struck, causing damage to the second, third, and fourth floors.
The patients affected were in the transitional care unit - patients in recovery or rehab. They were all considered to be "well" patients.
Three were moved to another wing of the hospital, 12 were taken to the Lake Park facility in Sylvania, five were sent to Flower Hospital's rehab center, and two went to the Goerlich Center at Flower.
In addition, seven obstetrics patients (moms) and their newborn children were relocated to another area in Toledo Hospital.
"Safety for our patients is the number one concern," said Clark Corey, a ProMedica representative. "That will make our determination, based on when we think we can safely put those patients back in those areas."
Clean up crews worked at the hospital through the night. ProMedica officials met Friday morning to determine when it will be safe to reopen affected areas. No word on if a decision was reached.
