UPDATE: Hospital and Long-Term Care Health Care Workers & Long-Term Care Residents Infected with COVID-19

Posted: April 23, 2020

(April 23, 2020)

Compiling this list has been a heartbreaking task and we must pause to recognize the real human toll of COVID-19 — patients, residents, staff and families who are affected– you are in our hearts and we send you our very best hopes and wishes. Our heartfelt sympathy goes to the families, careworkers, volunteers and communities of the long-term care and retirement home residents and staff who have died. To the media, whose value, local and central, has been demonstrated through this pandemic, thank you for your work pursuing this data and reporting on what has been happening. To all of you, we give our commitment to advocate to the utmost of our ability for the best protection and care for all affected.

On March 19, as outbreaks in long-term care homes began to be made public across Ontario, the Ontario Health Coalition began tracking and publicizing the spread of COVID-19 in health care settings including: long-term care residents and staff; hospital patients and staff; retirement home residents and staff; and other health care staff. (Previous reports are available here.)

This task has become massive. In the following 70 pages we have tracked 1,127 confirmed staff, 1,936 confirmed residents and patients and 720 additional confirmed cases (for which Public Health authorities did not specify whether they are health care staff or patients) for a total of 3,783 people who have been infected with COVID-19 in outbreaks in health care settings. We have found 283 health care facilities with outbreaks. The total confirmed cases from Ontario Public Health as at April 21[1] was 12,245. Thus, the 3,783 confirmed cases we have found in health care settings tracked here represent almost a third (30.9 percent) of the total.  With great sorrow, we report that we have also tracked a total of 435 deaths among patients/residents and staff in health care setting outbreaks with an additional death of a family member/volunteer in long-term care. The total number of deaths due to COVID-19 in Ontario was reported to be 659 by Public Health Ontario as at April 21. The deaths that we have found as a result of outbreaks in health care settings would represent 66 percent or two-thirds of that total. We continue to track each individual facility we can find to create the clearest possible picture of how outbreaks are spreading. (See Chart 1 for totals by health care setting.)

Overall, we have found that the spread in health care and congregate care settings continues to widen at an alarming pace. The outbreaks in hospitals continue to increase in number but, according to publicly available information, they appear to be contained more quickly and effectively than those in long-term care, retirement homes and congregate care/living settings. Since our last tracking report on April 7, while the number of outbreaks has risen significantly, the number of patients/residents in health care settings and the number of health care workers has increased exponentially. Tragically, the number of deaths that we have found from outbreaks in health care settings has increased almost five-fold since April 7.

 

Health & Congregate Care Settings Show Exponential Increase in COVID-19 Infections

The increase in recent weeks can be tracked as follows (see Chart 1 for current totals by setting):

  • Increase in number of outbreaks: On April 16 Public Health Ontario reported 106 long-term care home outbreaks and 30 public hospital outbreaks. By April 21 Public Health Ontario reported 125 long-term care home outbreaks and 35 public hospital outbreaks. However, as of April 21 the Ontario Health Coalition, as listed in this report, has found 155 long-term care home outbreaks, 54 outbreaks in 38 public hospitals (including one mental health facility), 69 retirement home outbreaks, and 21 additional outbreaks in health care settings (including congregate care/living settings, Public Health Units, health clinics and one private mental health and additions facility) for a total of 283 health care facilities with outbreaks with the largest proportion of these in long-term care and retirement homes (224). (Note: there are multiple outbreaks in a number of hospitals which are each counted as one facility in this total.)
  • Increase in number of health care workers with confirmed cases of COVID-19: Up from 513 health care workers on April 7 to 1,499 health care workers on April 21 according to Public Health Ontario. We have been able to find and track 1,127 of the health care workers infected in the tracking list in this report. This is up from 280 in our report of April 7.
  • Increase in number of patients/residents with confirmed cases of COVID-19: In our report of April 7 we found 318 patients/residents with confirmed cases. As of April 21 at 2 p.m. we found 1,936 patients/residents with confirmed cases. Public Health Ontario reported that there were 1,726 patients in public hospitals and long-term care homes with confirmed cases on April 21. (Public Health Ontario does not report residents/patients in retirement homes and private care facilities outside of long-term care.)
  • Increase in number of deaths among patients/residents and health care staff: In our report of April 7 we found 89 resident/patients who had died as a result of COVID-19. In this report as of April 21 at 2 p.m. we found 433 residents/patients who have died, 2 staff who have died and 1 family member/volunteer who died for a total of 436 deceased as a result of outbreaks in health care settings. Public Health Ontario reported as of afternoon April 21 that 308 patients/residents had died of COVID-19 outbreaks in public hospitals and long-term care homes. (Public Health Ontario does not report residents/patients in retirement homes and private care facilities outside of long-term care as separate from the Ontario total).

 

 

Cases in health care settings reported by Public Health Ontario compared to the number found by the Ontario Health Coalition

On April 22 Public Health Ontario reported[2] out of a total of 12,245 people confirmed to have been infected with COVID-19 to date, 1,499 were health care workers, or 12.2 percent. There were another 6,845 results pending among the total population.  There was a total of 659 deaths among the total population infected. In this data, they reported 125 outbreaks in long-term care homes and 35 outbreaks in hospitals. We found 155 outbreaks in long-term care homes (tracked in the following province-wide list) and 54 outbreaks in 38 separate public hospitals (including one mental health facility). In addition, we found 69 retirement homes with outbreaks and another 21 outbreaks in health care settings including congregate care/living settings, Public Health Units, health clinics and a private mental health and addictions facility for a total of 283 health care facilities/settings with outbreaks. (See Chart 2 for comparison and totals.)

In total, we found a higher number of outbreaks in hospitals and long-term care homes than is reported by Ontario Public Health. We found a significantly higher number of hospital staff who have tested positive in what we can determine are hospital outbreaks than are reported in the Ontario Public Health aggregates. We also found a significantly higher number of staff and residents infected with COVID-19 in long-term care home outbreaks, as well as, tragically, a significantly higher number of deaths. We have not found all health care staff that are included in the Public Health Ontario numbers. We have been able to track 1,127 as compared to the 1,499 total number of health care staff across all settings that are confirmed positive with COVID-19 reported by Public Health Ontario from the April 21 data, though it is not possible to determine who they include in their numbers as they are not clearly defined in the epidemiological reports.

According to Public Health Ontario’s report from April 22[3] there were 2,339 confirmed cases in long-term care homes. Off these 1,587 were residents and 748 were staff with 295 deaths among residents, one staff (and not included in the daily epidemiologic summary one volunteer/family member). There were 242 total cases in hospital outbreaks, 139 were patients, 101 were staff. There were 13 deaths among patients in hospital outbreaks and one staff.

We have been able to track a significantly higher number — 2,687 confirmed cases — in long-term care; 1,455 among residents, 597 among staff and 635 unspecified (not clear whether they are residents or staff). We have found 245 confirmed cases in hospital outbreaks. We found less information on patients than Public Health Ontario reports but significantly more staff: we found 57 of the cases in hospitals to be patients, 188 staff and 21 unspecified (not clear whether they are patients or staff). We have been able to track 562 confirmed cases in retirement homes including 367 among residents and 131 among staff and 64 unspecified (not clear whether they are residents or staff). These are not reported by Public Health Ontario. In addition, we found 211 other health care/residential care staff and 57 other patients/residents in outbreaks in health care/congregate care and living settings. These are also not reported by Public Health Ontario. (See Chart 2 for comparison between our findings and Public Health Ontario. See Chart 1 for breakdown of totals by health care facility/setting type.)

We cannot explain why we have found significantly more hospital and long-term care facility outbreaks than Public Health Ontario is reporting because the Ontario-level public health reports do not contain facility names for us to compare (and we have compiled our tracking list from local public health units and other local reports as per the note on methodology below). We have found fewer hospital patients because there is less public scrutiny and reporting that is publicly available about hospital outbreaks. Most public attention has been on long-term care homes and we have found both more outbreaks than are reported by Ontario Public Health (155 compared to 125), a significantly higher number of staff and residents infected (2,687 compared to 2,335) and a higher number of deaths (354 compared to 310). In addition, though Public Health reports the total number of health care staff infected, we cannot find a clear definition of who that number includes. Public Health Ontario does not report retirement homes, other health care facilities and settings and other congregate care facilities and settings separately from the general numbers for the whole Ontario population, they only break out the public hospital and long-term care numbers, and only some of those. Numbers not publicly reported by Public Health Ontario are denoted by N/A in Chart 2 below.

 

Note about Methodology: In order to compile this list, we have tracked the daily updates from the 35 Public Health Units in Ontario, including the epidemiological details and outbreak reports where they are publicly available. We have searched each facility name to identify whether it is long-term care or a retirement home and to find details about the cases reported in the aggregate numbers by Public Health Units. We have tracked and compiled media reports of outbreaks with details from across Ontario that contain credible source information (for example, they cited the Public Health Unit, long-term care home administration or hospital administration). Local Public Health Units report in different ways with varying levels of detail. Some do not provide breakdowns of staff/patients/residents. Local Public Health Units usually post outbreak reports for public hospitals, long-term care and retirement homes. The provincial-level information from Public Health Ontario does not include retirement homes or other health care and congregate care/living settings. We have tried to capture everything we can about retirement homes and other health care settings in addition to hospitals (public and private) and long-term care homes using the methodology outlined here. We have not been able to catch up on shelters, group homes and all the various congregate care settings. For that we apologize and will try to capture as much as we can going forward. It is not clear why Public Health Ontario’s numbers for the outbreaks in long-term care and public hospitals are lower than ours. We have repeatedly checked ours for accuracy and we have provided information in the most transparent way possible. In addition, Public Health Units are reporting retirement home outbreaks separately and these numbers should be available to Public Health Ontario but Public Health Ontario does not report the aggregate numbers for retirement homes. Given the number of outbreaks in these private for-profit homes, it is important that the spread in them is also tracked and that they are subject to improved public health measures (and the support needed) to protect residents and staff. Overall, we have tracked every individual case and report in the most credible manner possible and have included sources for each report in the footnotes.
