Regina’s two hospitals have been overcrowded almost every day so far in 2013.
The Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region says Regina General Hospital has been operating at overcapacity since Jan. 2.
The situation isn’t much better at Pasqua Hospital, which has been at overcapacity for all but two days so far this year.
On Thursday, Regina General Hospital was 78 patients over capacity, while Pasqua Hospital had 23 too many.
Last month, several elective surgeries and endoscopies were postponed due to overcrowding.
