Pennsylvania will forever have truth problem.
Not true here
30 COVIDs in house, all ICU CCU CVSU beds full, 5 in ER overflow
And it’s not even January yet (usual peak crunch time)
LOL. The Florida hospital I work at (I’m an RN) CLOSED our dedicated covid unit months ago. We’ve only had a small handful of covid patients since. ICU is full of critical patients with other problems; sometimes there is 1 or 2 covid patients in there.
I’ve been seeing way more people in the hospital from drug overdoses or poorly managed chronic conditions than covid.
Curious - where? How many are there for other problems but happen to have a positive test result and are thus considered “covid patients”?
I know five people in their late 70’s and 80’s that acquired the virus and only one of the five had to go to the hospital and that was for pneumonia for 3 days. She was never in ICU. The rest were sent home to recover with a regimen of medicine. Two have recovered and been released by their doctors, and the others appear to be headed for the same good results. For all five the covid-19 has been like a mild case of the flu.
In Western MA the COVID beds doubled this week. ICU beds for COVID are the highest since May. All other procedures are being done as well, so capacity is creeping up.
What gets them admitted is not a test, it’s the pulmonary status/ dysfunction.. Yes, many are multiple pathology admits, but that is always true on medical units. Local hospital system giving out large bonuses to full time hospital staff.
I suspect that what people report is dependent on where they stand.
De-socialization is the goal. Incrementally. Planned.
They are forcing new habits into the population, successfully — masking and staying home. Habits take months to learn and to forget.
Next? Vaccinations + Health ID to allow entry into businesses. Coming soon.
Frogs in the pot.
My COVID beds are also all full, ER backed up, can’t meet transfer in demands.
Interestingly, four days ago CMS waived enforcement of Sec 1867(a) of EMTALA in order to allow hospitals to screen patients.
Something is going on.
But is it because of WuFlu...?
Agreed on all counts.
What is the name of this facility and where is it located at?
Can you translate for us non-medical folk?
They’re allowing patients to be screened off site. Medicare patients in this case.
What I’m wondering is if there isn’t some patient dumping by nursing homes going on.
NYS, for example, still has a WuFlu problem in its nursing homes. County health departments are reporting WuFlu deaths of nursing home residents.
If CMS is relaxing that particular part of EMTALA, then I’m wondering about with WuFlu vs for WuFlu admissions to hospitals.
Full to overflowing here. It’s definitely a regional thing.
For my husband it was like a bad flu and it affected his cognitive abilities to a greater extent than any previous flu has ever had. He slept all the time and had fever dreams. Towards tge end Doc had him go to hospital towards the end because oxygen level had dropped to 91. Had to wait parked in a wheelchair outside for awhile in cold wind before they brought him to a room. Of course I couldn’t come in. He told me it was overcrowded and he ended up in what looked like a storage room of some kind with a dirty floor. Its been almost 4 weeks and he still has bad headaches and chills towards the evenings.
Are you seeing this with your own eyes or repeating what you hear/see in your local news?
It is not a second wave....just the same virus spreading...more people out and about...also more testing which means nothing...
