Idaho crisis standards of care caused by unvaccinated COVID-19 patients affects us all
In all, 95-98% of the COVID-19 patients in St. Luke’s ICU beds are unvaccinated. │ Editorial
To think this was all preventable. I don’t even know where to begin with this.
“Here’s an even scarier statement, from the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare’s strategies during crisis standards of care:
“Universal DNR Order: Adult patients hospitalized during a public health emergency, when crisis standards of care have been declared, should receive aggressive interventions; however, they should receive NO attempts at resuscitation (compressions, shocks or intubation if not yet intubated) in the event of cardiac arrest. The likelihood of survival after a cardiac arrest is extremely low for adult patients. As well, resuscitation poses significant risk to healthcare workers due to aerosolization of body fluids and uses large quantities of scarce resources such as staff time, personal protective equipment, and lifesaving medications, with minimal opportunity for benefit.””Posted on 2021-09-18T22:39:49+0000
