— GERALDTON HEALTH CAMPUS
1070. Hon STEVE MARTIN to the minister representing the
Minister for Health:
I refer to public concerns that Geraldton Health Campus will
not be able to cope with an outbreak of COVID-19.
(1) As part of
the extra bed announcement on 3 November, how many additional beds have been
allocated to Geraldton Health Campus?
(2) How many
intensive care unit beds are available for use at Geraldton Health Campus?
(3) How many
ventilators are available for use at Geraldton Health Campus?
(4) If a patient
tests positive to COVID-19, will they be able to stay at Geraldton Health
Campus or will they be transferred to Perth?
Hon STEPHEN DAWSON
I thank the honourable member for some notice of the
question. The following information has been provided by the Minister for
COVID-19-positive patients can be cared for at Geraldton Health Campus;
however, they may be transferred to Perth for escalation of care if required.
