The leak that shut down the Misericordia Hospital emergency room for four days in August has been fully repaired and all services have returned to their regular operations, Alberta Health Services said on Tuesday.

The emergency room was closed on Aug. 20th after a leaky toilet flooded the department. The ER was reopened on Aug. 24, though some day surgeries had to be relocated so the ER would have more room.
