General | Latest Info

Victoria eleventh BC Care Home has reported COVID-19 outbreak this month, while the province recorded another 98 infections and one more death on Friday. Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and Deputy Minister of Health Stephen Brown said in a joint statement Friday there was an outbreak at Peace Portal Seniors Village, long-term Care Home in Surrey. There are 10 long-term care or assist-living facilities with active outbreaks, and four in acute-Care facilities. Kinvillage, Evergreen Hamlets, OPAL by Element, Yaletown House, Banfield Pavillion, Rideau Retirement Centre, Royal Arch Masonic Home, and Milieu Children and Family Services Society community living facility have seen outbreaks recently, though, one at OPAL has since been declared over. Cherington Place and Point Grey Private Hospital also saw outbreaks in September. Active cases have dropped to 1 371, but another 116 people are in isolation after coming into close contact with someone who tested positive for the virus. Total are now 3 533 people under public health monitoring in the province. With cooler weather on the way, Henry and Brown say it is time to connect less in person and find other, safer ways to stay in touch. Stepping back from our social interactions does not mean losing touch. Rather, you can continue to reach out to friends near and far with many tools we have available to us to connect virtually, they say. Province has reached 8 641 total cases since the start of the pandemic, and of those, 7 036 people, 81. 4 per cent, have recover. The number of people in hospital is now 62, with 19 in intensive care. The rest of them are at home in self-isolation. While there are no community outbreaks, exposure events still happen and are documented on the BC Centre for Disease Control website. The recent death was in VANCOUVER Coastal Health region. So far, 230 people have died from coronavirus in BC since the start of the pandemic, There have been 3 127 cases of COVID-19 in VANCOUVER Coastal Health region, 4 412 in the Fraser Health region, 204 in the Island Health region, 522 in the Interior Health region, 289 in the Northern Health region and 87 cases of people who reside outside of Canada, Henry and Brown say.

Health officials on September 25 revealed some good news relating to COVID-19 pandemic-number of people actively fighting infections dropped for the fourth consecutive day and is now almost one-third less than it was four days ago. 22-person decline to 1 349 people actively battling the virus, came thanks to 119 people recovering overnight, while one person died and 98 people were newly infect. That statistic for new infections is significantly below yesterday's total of 148 new cases, and what makes the new lower total even more impressive is that it came while testing increase. There were 8 538 COVID-19 tests conducted in the past 24 hours-954 more than 7 584 tests conducted the previous day. That means that the daily positive-test percentage dropped to slightly more than 1. 1% from almost 2%. The number of recoveries from virus passed the 7 000 threshold for the first time, and now sits at 7 036 people out of 8 641 people who have been infected since the virus first was detected in BC in late January. The steep rise in recoveries earlier this week came in part because Vancouver Coastal Health suddenly reported a slew of recoveries after delays that were partly due to it installing a new data management system. The vast majority of people actively infected are self-isolating at home, although 62 people are sick enough to be in hospitals, with 19 of those in intensive care units. Single deaths means that the province's death toll from the virus has increased to 230. That left 26 people unaccounted for, and health officials have told BIV that the likely reason is that they have left the province without keeping in touch with authorities. The breakdown of all known infections in BC by Health region is: 3 127 in Vancouver Coastal Health; 4 412 in Fraser Health; 204 in Island Health; 522 in Interior Health; 289 in Northern Health; and 87 people who reside outside Canada. There has been one new outbreak at seniors Home: Peace Portal Seniors Village in Surrey, while health officials have declared the outbreak at Surrey Memorial Hospital to be over. That means that there are active outbreaks at four BC hospitals-all of which are in the Lower Mainland:. Paul's Hospital in Vancouver; Delta Hospital in Delta; Peace Arch Hospital in White Rock; and Burnaby General Hospital in Burnaby. There are also outbreaks at 10 senior long-term Care or assist-living facilities: Peace Portal Seniors Village in Surrey; Banfield Pavilion long-term Care facility in Vancouver; Point Grey Private Hospital long-term Care facility in Vancouver; Yaletown House long-term Care facility in Vancouver; Cherington Place long-term Care facility in Surrey; Evergreen Hamlets long-term Care facility in Surrey; KinVillage assist living facility in Tsawwassen; Milieu Children and Family Services Society community-living facility in Courtenay; New Vista Care Home long-term Care facility in Burnaby; and Rideau Retirement Centre independent living facility in Burnaby.

Medications

The use, and potential misuse, of medications in Residential Care homes has been an ongoing area of focus for the Office of Seniors Advocate. In its annual British Columbia Residential Care Facilities: Quick Facts Directory publication, Office reports, for each care home in the province, proportion of residents prescribe antidepressant medications, as well as proportion taking antipsychotic medication without accompanying diagnosis of psychosis. Empowering residents and their MFVs to ask about medications, along with the requirement of physicians to seek consent from either resident or their designated decision maker, is acknowledged as the first line of defence in reducing both medication errors and over-medication.
