Sneak peak of trends in hospital activity but with another month of data. Tomorrow I will fix the X axis to indicate actual days. Not sure why excel changed it for me. pic.twitter.com/Td0x6Qq4U5— ReasonRebellionAZ (@az_reason) March 26, 2020
Likely pretty accurate for areas not swamped with COVID patients. Hospitals have stopped non-emergent procedures due to lack of PPE and lots of patients are rescheduling non-urgent outpatient visits to avoid going to medical centers and possibly being exposed. It is eerie how quiet the hospitals and clinics in my area are now
My friend in vegas works at a hospital and was telling me how they normally have 70 or so patients in there and now they got 10 if that. They are setting up for the rush of patients but are going to get very low very fast on protective equipment and said he wont work once they run out. I wonder once that starts happening and the odds of a Dr/Nurse/EMT increases drasticallyl of getting sick themselves, how many stop coming into work? Any ideas, just asking as IDK the mentality of people in those fields since I don't work in them.
Statistics on this are usually around 30% when workers are anonymously polled. I imagine it will be much higher.
Where I work, essential health care workers have been issued strict guidelines:
-No vacation days until further notice
-As doctors, we need to put 2 backups for every clinical on-call resource (so if we are 2 on-call, there needs to be 4 back ups)
-No one can retire until further notice
-People can call in sick but this needs to be either backed with a medical note or from quarantine (and then testing is needed)
They just forced a pregnant pharmacist to stay at work.
Wow man holy shit. What is your opinion on the entire situation now? Do you think the quarantine lasts more than two weeks from now? More than a month?
