The Gelre hospitals in Zutphen and Apeldoorn canceled all non-vital surgeries for the time being. The hospitals are overcrowded due to the ongoing flu epidemic, De Stentor reports.

Almost every bed in the hospitals is occupied, and Gelre already deployed extra staff. "We are working with everything we have to cope with the ongoing patient flow", spokesperson for the hospitals Carla Icking said to the newspaper. "We had to take these measures."

The Gelre hospitals in Apeldoorn and Zutphen had to cancel a number of surgeries and treatments due to a computer failure. Some outpatient clinics are also affected, De Stentor reports.

The computer system in question does have a backup, but patient data on the backup files can only be viewed, not changed. It is for that reason the hospitals decided to cancel a number of surgeries and treatments. "After surgery we can not pass on internal data. We don't want to take any risks with that", spokesperson Tom Schooltink said to the newspaper.
