Hospitals coping with water crisis

Posted: Updated:

 Hospitals are doing their best to cope with the water emergency.

 Promedica reports it served a cold breakfast to patients and are having bottled water shipped in. 

Promedica spokesman Brian Biggie said,  "We are definitely good for today." 

Promedica is having water shipped in from vendors and coordinating with Promedica hospitals outside of Lucas County for assistance.

They are using backup water supply for care and surgery at Mercy and shipping in supplies and water from their sister hospital St. Charles in Oregon.

In a Saturday morning press conference, City health officials warned dialysis patients not to use tap water for their treatment.
