Computer outages causes headaches for health care workers and patients

December 6, 2017

Computer outages at hospitals and health-care centres across the province Tuesday caused havoc with the health system.

The problem started at around 6 am Tuesday morning when the Service New Brunswick data centre in Saint John experienced a partial outage.

The Saint John area was the hardest hit, causing the cancellation of hundreds of appointments.

A spokesperson for Horizon Health said that in other parts of the province, including Miramichi, the glitch mostly affected staff functions such as the internal intra-net and email.
