MHP Incident Command Update

January 3, 2022

General Update: Indiana’s overall Covid positivity is 14.9% and Shelby County’s positivity rate is 15.1%.

Pediatric Covid update: One of the state’s leading pediatric hospitals shared data with us comparing their December 2020 Covid statistics to December 2021. The data shows an 88% increase in pediatric patients testing positive and a 35% increase in pediatric Covid admissions.

Inpatient unit: All 40 of our 40 beds remain full on our 3rd-floor inpatient unit and that has been the case almost every day since December 11th. The ACC inpatient unit is nearly full with 16 patients.

  • We currently have 14 critical care patients on the 3rd floor, and 11 (79%) of those patients are due to Covid. Of the 14 Covid-related critical care patients, only two are vaccinated.
  • We have four patients on ventilators and all of those patients are Covid positive and none of them are vaccinated. We have ten additional patients who are on Vapotherm or BiPap, and all of those patients are Covid positive.
  • Twenty-three (58%) of our inpatients are Covid positive, and twenty (87%) of them are unvaccinated.

Regeneron supply: As of this morning, we had 92 doses of Regeneron remaining. We will run out by Wednesday as we continue to infuse over 30 patients per day.

Don't visit an Emergency Room for just a COVID test. - This will help us in treating patients who require emergency care.
