Adena Regional Medical Center (ARMC) Emergency Department physicians and staff have evaluated and treated 24 patients presenting as a result of the incident from Ross County Correctional Institute this morning. Out of these patients, just one has been admitted.
The ARMC Emergency Department is open for its patients arriving in a personal vehicle, and they will be treated within the hospital. Ambulance traffic continues to be diverted until the hospital can decontaminate and prepare the Emergency Department.
Family members of patients who were transported to ARMC should go to the hospital’s North entrance and identify themselves as RCI family and they will be taken to a waiting area.
