Canada: New Vaughan Smart Hospital opens with COVID-19 focus


Toronto, Ontario, Canada: A new great hospital in Vaughan has opened its doors and is now accepting patients.  Maleeha Sheikh gets a tour of what officials are calling Canada's "first smart hospital."

Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital (formerly Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital) is a hospital in Vaughan, Ontario, Canada. Construction of the hospital was completed in September 2020. It opened on 7 February 2021. It is operated by Mackenzie Health, which also operates Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital. Its construction cost about C$1.7 billion.

The hospital is situated on a large 25-hectare property on the northwest corner of Jane Street and Major Mackenzie Drive, adjacent to Canada's Wonderland.

  1. This new hospital sure has new useful technology. The smart hospital has vision & smart workflows. Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital will be the first hospital in Canada to feature fully integrated 'smart' technology systems and medical devices that can speak directly to one another to maximize information exchange.

    Through new integrated technology, the vital signs monitor will send a silent alert directly to the Critical Care Response Team. The team members will be wearing smart real-time location services (RTLS) badges that will automatically override the elevators once they are in proximity, saving valuable time.

  2. For over a month, Italians had known about the 'Corona Virus' in China, having seen the narratives on the report about how the Chinese Government was dealing with the scourge. testeraanhuis.nl

    1. The first known infections from SARS-CoV-2 were discovered in Wuhan, China. It seems that the original source of viral transmission to humans remains unclear, as does whether the virus became pathogenic before or after the spillover event. Because many of the early infectees were workers at the Huanan Seafood Market, it has been suggested that the deadly virus might have originated from the market. However, other research indicates that visitors may have introduced the virus to the market, which then facilitated rapid expansion of the infections.

      Covid-19 is certainly "not over" for the world. Experts fear new surges of COVID-19 infections, especially with virus variants that grow faster among people.

  3. Covid-19 enters and impacts social, mental, local area and work environment settings in four key manners. First is the actual ramifications. People become contaminated socially without knowing or they become tainted from openness to a known emphatically tried person. fit to fly covid test manchester

    1. Better Covid testing is certainly good. COVID-19 testing certainly involves analyzing samples to assess the current or past presence of SARS-CoV-2. The two main branches detect either the presence of the virus or of antibodies produced in response to infection. Molecular tests for viral presence through its molecular components are used to diagnose individual cases and to allow public health authorities to trace and contain outbreaks. Antibody tests (serology immunoassays) instead show whether someone once had the disease. They are less useful for diagnosing current infections because antibodies may not develop for weeks after infection. It is used to assess disease prevalence, which aids the estimation of the infection fatality rate.

      Individual jurisdictions have adopted varied testing protocols, including whom to test, how often to test, analysis protocols, sample collection and the uses of test results. This variation has likely significantly impacted reported statistics, including case and test numbers, case fatality rates and case demographics. Because SARS-CoV-2 transmission occurs days after exposure (and before onset of symptoms) there is an urgent need for frequent surveillance and rapid availability of results.

      Test analysis is often performed in automated, high-throughput, medical laboratories by medical laboratory scientists. Alternatively, point-of-care testing can be done in physician's offices and parking lots, workplaces, institutional settings or so-called transit hubs.
