On the morning of August 15, 2014, a man arrived at the Toronto General Hospital emergency room.
He had a mild headache and was coughing and spitting.
When he was examined by a doctor, he was found to have a bacterial infection in his mouth.
He was rushed to hospital for a test and antibiotics.
But the results were not good.
By the time he was released, his mouth was infected again, and he developed pneumonia.
Doctors thought it was time to take him to the hospital.
But by then, the city had already decided to send him home.
A hospital spokesperson said the city is considering removing his headgear, because it was causing his infection.
“We don’t have the resources to send people back,” she said.
“If we can’t take them out of the city, then we would have to send them back.”
The city says it has a strict policy on headgear worn by people who arrive in Toronto and cannot leave because of infectious diseases.
It’s been debated at length in recent years, with city officials, dentists and medical experts all expressing concern about the safety of wearing the gear.
But city officials said it is the first time the city has removed the headgear from its emergency rooms in the past decade.
The policy was put in place because there is a high rate of infection in the city and it is “not safe for anyone to stay in the emergency room,” according to a spokesperson.
Toronto’s hospital system has a policy to “immediately remove” people who are contagious, which means they are not allowed to stay at a hospital and are not able to return for their scheduled appointments, unless they have a referral from a physician.
The city has a zero-tolerance policy on wearing a mask, goggles or mouthguard, which is why, according to the spokesperson, the hospital is “considering the removal of the headdress.”
As the spokesperson explained, “it is the responsibility of the patient to be informed of this policy and be prepared to provide the required documentation.”
The spokesperson did not provide any information about who will pay for the headband.
The headband is a very expensive piece of equipment, but the city’s policy says that people should not have to pay for it because it’s not reimbursable.
While a medical professional might be able to explain to a patient why they need a headgear or mask, it’s up to the individual to decide whether to wear it.
While the policy allows the headwear to be taken off, some doctors and dentists said they don’t recommend it.
They said that a headdress could be a symptom of other underlying health conditions, like diabetes, asthma or COPD, which could lead to infections or even death.
“You want to wear a mask if you have a respiratory infection,” said Dr. Marc Dutkiewicz, a Toronto-based emergency room physician.
“But the risk is high.”
Dutliewicz said he has seen people with severe respiratory illnesses, like COPD or asthma, who were wearing a headcover.
“The mask can also increase the risk of pneumonia and the virus going into the lungs,” Dutniewicz said.
But a recent study by researchers at Toronto’s Centre for Addiction and Mental Health found that wearing a protective mask was associated with lower rates of infection and a lower rate of mortality from pneumonia in adults who had been in the hospital for more than 12 days.
A study by the University of Toronto Health Centre also found that the number of deaths linked to COPD increased by 24 per cent in people who had a head cover.
The Ontario Hospital Association has also expressed concern about removing the head cover in Toronto.
In a statement, the association said that the policy is “completely unrealistic” and could have serious repercussions for patients.
“While we understand the concerns of those who have health conditions that are related to infectious diseases, we must be realistic in our policy decisions and do not take them lightly,” the statement said.
Dutcys is one of the many doctors who say they believe that the headpiece should be removed because it has the potential to cause infection.
In an interview with The Globe and Mail, Dutczys said, “The most important thing to do is protect your health, to ensure that you’re not exposing yourself to these diseases and potentially having those diseases go through the airway and possibly kill you.”
