Five southwestern Ontario hospitals, supported by the IT services of TransForm Shared Service Organization, experienced significant disruptions due to a cyberattack. This incident led to the delay of medical procedures, including a crucial cardioversion, and left some patients waiting for extended periods, or even canceling treatments altogether. The hospitals were forced to revert to paper records as their online services, covering patient records and email communication, had been rendered inaccessible since Monday morning. The attack's extent necessitated the postponement of scheduled care and a plea for non-emergency patients to seek alternatives, highlighting the severe impact on hospital operations and patient care.
