Mount Gambier Hospital

Tuesday September 21, 2021

Mr BELL (Mount Gambier) (15:16): My question is to the minister representing the Minister for Health. Can the minister detail how the Mount Gambier hospital will cope with a COVID-19 outbreak? With your leave, and that of the house, I will explain.

Leave granted.

Mr BELL: Concerns have been raised with me regarding the fact that the Mount Gambier hospital has no dedicated COVID facilities, including a ventilator, and no COVID-approved area with appropriate ventilation requirements.


The Hon. J.A.W. GARDNER (Morialta—Minister for Education) (15:17): I thank the member for the question. I will check the details that he has suggested may be the case and bring back an answer for the house.
