KGW: Grants Pass hospital putting two COVID ICU patients in a room built for one
ATRMC leaders sound the alarm on bed shortages amid delta surge.
At the Asante Three Rivers Medical Center in Grants Pass, an intensive care unit built for 12 people now sometimes houses as many as 21.
“It’s a single patient room that we put two full sized beds in,” said Laura Magstadt, vice president of nursing at the hospital. She said its an emergency move to care for the sickest of the sick as COVID-19 causes an overflow of patients, but it’s not ideal.
