MHP Incident Command Update
March 9, 2022
General update: Shelby County’s current positivity rate decreased drastically to
3.7% and Indiana’s positivity rate equally decreased to 3.7%. Shelby
County is now in the “yellow” category and we expect to be
in the “blue” category as soon as next week.
Inpatient unit: Twenty-seven of our 40 beds are full on our 3rd-floor inpatient unit.
- We currently have six critical care patients on the 3rd floor, and none
of those patients are due to Covid.
- We have no patients on a ventilator. We have two additional patients who
are on Vapotherm or BiPap, and those are not due to Covid.
- Only one of our inpatients is Covid positive, and that individual is vaccinated.
Urgent Care and walk-in volumes: MHP Priority Care and MHP Family & Internal Medicine are experiencing
normal volumes for this time of year and little to no Covid positive patients
at this time. MHP Pediatrics is averaging 70 walk-in patients per day
and flu A and strep throat are the main reason for the volume increase.
We had 19 flu-A positive patients yesterday. We are not seeing any Covid
positive pediatric patients at this time.
Emergency Department: The Emergency Department is averaging 66 patients per day, which is a normal
volume for this time of year. We do not have any infusions scheduled for today.
