Trinity Medical will be performing a live emergency drill Tuesday, November 30 at the hospital. Emergency personnel will be involved in the drill. The drill is being held to prepare Trinity Medical workers for an actual emergency.

“This is a state requirement and we want to let people know this is not an active situation,” said Trinity Medical CEO Nekeisha Smith.

Smith said for the fifth straight week, Trinity Medical does not have any COVID-19 patients at the hospital.

“Our numbers in the ER have also declined,” Smith said. “We’re very excited about that.”

Trinity Medical now has the Pfizer and Moderna boosters on hand to be administered.

“We are doing those on different days, so people need to call to make an appointment,” she said.

Smith said anyone wishing to receiver any of the vaccines or boosters can call 318-757-6559 to schedule an appointment. She also advised people to get their flu shots for this year.

All U.S. adults who received a two-dose vaccine would be eligible for an additional shot of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine six months from when they got their second one.

The hospital was a full capacity earlier this month, but is not full now because of the holidays.
