How does hospitals not have the needed beds or even equipment and staff , after what 5-6 months down the road? Did the Hospitals fail thinking it would be over no need to ramp up the number usable beds and stock up the required medical equipment. I don't know but just seems like a complete fail by the health industry. Hell New York can supply allot of ventalators as the warehoused most of them and killed their patients by putting them in old folks homes.Lots of hospitals here are on diversion. Actually even shipping some out cause they are full. We have been receiving some from long ways away. Which we are currently full ourselves even after adding the mandated extra ICU beds. Now the issue is running out of needed medical equipment for the influx of patients. Not to mention being short staffed even before this s h i t started.
