JPR: More kids are part of increasing COVID caseload
In a news conference last week, ATRMC leaders provided a sobering look at the current delta surge.
“We’re in an absolute, full-blown health care crisis,” said Three Rivers CEO Win Howard.
Fueled by the highly infectious delta variant, COVID patients are being doubled up in typically single patient ICU rooms.
“We have so many critically ill patients that, unfortunately, that was one of our only options,” said Vice President of Nursing Laura Magstadt. “Today we have 18 patients in our 12-bed ICU. 90% of those patients are unvaccinated.”
