ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - Hospital officials in Albany said a false social media post could put lives at risk this weekend.
Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital officials said the post being shared on Facebook falsely claims staff will be limited in Albany emergency rooms this weekend.
Phoebe said the post is written as if it’s a legitimate news source and encourages people not to go to Phoebe if they need emergency care this weekend.
Phoebe’s President and CEO Scott Steiner said the post is not true.
Phoebe officials said anyone in an emergency should call 911 or go immediately to the closest emergency center.
