Brevard County's largest hospital system has set up a refrigerated trailer for use as a possible morgue, if needed, as the COVID-19 surge continues to bring in more patients, Health First officials report.

The article says the trailer is used for multiple things and has been sitting there for a year.   They own it.

Texas hospital system is prepping tents to deal with rapid surge in COVID-19 patients

 

A hospital system in Texas is prepping tents for the overflow of patients after a surge in COVID-19 cases filled its hospitals to the verge of capacity.

Harris Health System in Houston is reporting 1 in 4 patients at its two hospitals have tested positive for COVID-19.

 

Ben Taub Hospital's intensive care unit is at 95% capacity with 27% of utilization by COVID-19 patients and Lyndon B. Johnson Hospital, where the tents are being set up, is at 100% ICU utilization with 63% COVID-19 cases, Harris Health spokesperson Bryan McLeod told CNN in an email.

"They are still in the process of completing set up, and installing IT equipment, etc. There is no predetermined time for when they will begin to be used, but they want the tented environment to be ready to go in the event they are needed," McLeod said.

President and CEO Esmaeil Porsa told CNN's Victor Blackwell that there are 122 COVID patients at the system's two hospitals and the number increased quickly.

"What is intriguing about this surge is not so much the magnitude of the numbers, but the speed at which the numbers are going up," Porsa said.

"It took us five weeks to get from one (patient) to 120. When I look at the last surge, it took us three months — the rapid rise in the amount of COVID-19 patients is very concerning."

Another lagging problem is personnel shortages. Porsa said he would welcome federal aid to relieve some of the pressure. The hospitals are 254 nurses short leaving hospitals with no options but to hire agency nurses at high prices, he said.

Porsa encouraged everyone to get vaccinated, saying that not one of the 128 patients that have died from the virus in the health system's hospitals this year were fully vaccinated.

"The situation is bad and only getting worse. We are not heading towards a crisis, we are in the middle of a crisis," Porsa said.

Baby airlifted due to lack of beds in Houston

An 11-month-old girl had to be airlifted on Friday to a hospital 150 miles away because of a shortage of beds in Harris County.

Ava Amira Rivera tested positive for COVID-19, according to Amanda Callaway, a spokeswoman for Harris Health System. Callaway said Ava was having seizures and needed to be incubated but Lyndon B. Johnson Hospital, where she was first taken, does not offer pediatric services.

None of the major pediatric hospitals in the area had beds available, Callaway said.

She is doing well and on the road to recovery, said Dr. Dominic Lucia of Baylor Scott & White McLane Children's Medical Center in Temple, Texas.

Tents and helicopters? Oh the humanity! Where in leadership from DC? Why can’t Joe stop the spread? Where are our testing kits so we can contact trace this thing? Why are other nations doing so much better. Why aren’t we locked down?
