General update: Shelby County’s current positivity rate decreased slightly to 27.3%
and Indiana’s positivity rate decreased significantly to 21.9%.
Nearly every Indiana county remains in the “red” positivity
category, but almost all have a declining number of cases. Of all the
new Covid diagnoses, 85.5% consist of the Omicron variant; 7.1% consist
of the Delta variant, and 7.4% consist of a non-identified subvariant
Inpatient unit: Thirty-nine of our 40 beds are full on our 3rd-floor inpatient unit.
- We currently have 9 critical care patients on the 3rd floor, and 2 (22%)
of those patients are due to Covid. Of the 2 Covid-related critical care
patients, one is vaccinated.
- We have two patients on a ventilator and neither of those patients is Covid
positive. We have one additional patient who is on Vapotherm or BiPap,
and that patient is Covid positive and unvaccinated.
- Thirteen (33%) of our inpatients are Covid positive, and six (46%) of them
- We have had four deaths since our last update where Covid caused or significantly
contributed to the cause of death.
Urgent Care and walk-in volumes: All walk-in and acute care volumes across the system have decreased substantially
since last week, including the Emergency Department.
