Inpatient unit: Thirty-nine of our 40 beds are occupied on our 3rd floor inpatient unit. We had eighteen critical care patients at one point
over the weekend, which represented 45% of our inpatients.
We currently have sixteen critical care patients on the 3rd floor and eleven (69%) of those patients are due to Covid. Of the eleven
Covid-related critical care patients, only one is vaccinated.
- We have eight patients on ventilators, plus five additional patients who
are on Vapotherm or BiPap.
- Twenty-six (67%) of our inpatients are Covid positive and twenty-three
(88%) of them are unvaccinated.
Emergency Department: The Emergency Department averaged seventy-two patients each day over last
three days. This is down compared to last week when we averaged eighty-six
patients per day. Our ACC unit currently has twelve observation patients.
We have seventeen infusions scheduled today and we infused seventy patients
Thursday/Friday of last week. We have 118 doses of Regeneron remaining,
but we are learning that the Omicron variant is likely resistant to the
infusion drugs we have been using due to its multiple mutations. The Omicron
variant has been identified in Indiana, but the Delta variant remains
the predominant strain at this time. Omicron is expected to become the
dominant strain within a few weeks. We are awaiting additional information
from the Indiana State Department of Health.
Urgent Care and Walk-in visits: Priority Care is seeing up to ninety patients per day and the wait times
are longer than expected. MHP Family and Internal Medicine walk-in visits
are slightly less busy, so that may be a better option for established
patients. MHP Pediatric walk-in visits are slightly less busy than last
week and we are seeing a handful of Covid positive cases and an increase
in the number of seasonal flu positive cases.
