The facility I work at prepares for the worst. An increasing number of patients will need a ventilator but we have limited resources - like every other facility. Patients who are COVID + and get better cannot leave to another facility for rehab.
I am dreading the day when the ventilators will be triaged - and I think we are there soon. Anxiety is increasing among staff - concerns for our own health as well as the health of our families. As usual, concerns from staff are being down-played.
