Dispatches from a Field Hospital

Described Video:
The COVID-19 pandemic is devastating long-term care homes across Ontario. During the first wave in the spring of 2020, the city of Windsor erected Canada's first MASH-style field hospital almost overnight to isolate and treat elderly patients from Heron Terrace who tested positive for the virus. To fight back against confusion and despair, medical staff created a lifeline between these seniors and their families using iPads and phones. Dispatches from a Field Hospital documents the dramatic stories of several families, including director Matt Gallagher, whose own father became a patient.
