KDRV: Asante’s critical care and emergency departments are under siege
On Thursday, 14 patients filled the Critical Care Unit at Asante Three Rivers Medical Center in Grants Pass. Each was suffering from COVID-19. Each needed a machine to breathe.
None has been vaccinated.
Few will leave the unit alive.
“I think the hardest thing is having a patient that is alert and oriented, and he knows he is not going to make it,” said Sadie Emond, a nurse in the CCU.
