Topic: Hospitals are fucked

My partner is a resident at Mt. Sinai in Manhattan who was called in to assist at Elmhurst Hospital in Queens - the epicenter of NYC's crisis. She has been using the same N95 mask for 4 days. Nurses and doctors are using garbage bags for backup protective equipment when there are shortages. Reusing masks and creating makeshift protective gear from garbage bags are CDC recommendations that have no basis in scientific evidence. That's just some of the issues around equipment, there are also massive personnel deficiencies too.

She is a 2nd year resident in charge of an entire COVID ICU floor with 16+ patients under her care as of yesterday. Her specialization is not in intensive care and there aren't enough intensive care consultants available to give her guidance. 
They are training hospital staff (orderlies, cooks, etc.) how to care for patients and do medical procedures. One hospital mechanic was able to buy tubing at Home depot and split one ventilator for 3 patients. Permitted? Who knows. But they would be in the morgue now if not. It was his idea.
 It is that bad. She's teaching herself on the fly using textbooks and the web for procedures that involve paralyzing patients to prevent them from pulling out ventilator tubes when they go into shock. Her support team is made up of other residents, medical students, interns and the non medical staff who are learning. The hospital she's at is pulling ventilators from wherever they can find them so in the last 3 days she has learned to use more than 5 different ventilator models.
When officials are saying that more equipment is on the way it's already too late. Healthcare workers are getting sick because the waves of patients hit the hospitals before the equipment did. A 28 yo intern is on a ventilator and near death. She asked her to call her mom because she is too sick to do it.
 If NYC is any indication for how prepared the U.S. is when this thing spreads then we are fucked. Even if we manage to keep death tolls down the burnout, trauma, and mental health issues our front line providers are going to experience is not something to take lightly. Another overlooked aspect of all this is that many of these patients that end up in intensive care and do not die will leave the hospitals with permanent lung damage and disabilities - this will be the young patients that don't show up in mortality reports.

Yep, this is EXACTLY why healthcare shouldn't be for profit. It is run like a resort hotel and not something that is so life critical

The government is so good at planning.  That's why the federal stockpiles were full to the brim!

Using the same mask for FOUR DAYS? You shouldn't use the same mask for more than four hours. The filters become clogged. Although you can wash out the mask using 85% sanitizer but then it has to dry out before re-using.

I watch a youtube today made by a NYC Doctor crying it is all fucked up and the State and CDC are saying 'Nah, we're on it.' on TV. Then I watched the NY Gov explain to us all how he's on it.

BULLSHIT AT THIS POINT AND ALL ELSE THAT FOLLOWS.....
'IC consultants' is bullshit terminology.
No way would any hospital outside of Yemen 'train' non medical staff to do medical procedures.

Stories and others like it explain why it's imperative not to get COVID for the next 2 months.

Almost 3 million people die in the United States every year, year after year, from all causes, mostly old people of course. A little less than 1% of the population each year.  People do not live forever.

Around 8,000 per day. About 240,000 per month. That is normal. Most people don’t know this. The media preys on this ignorance and the populations inability to do arithmetic.
The additional corona virus deaths are not even close to being statistically significant.
This madness is the result of treason by corrupt left wing Governors in California, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania causing mass panic and economic destruction.
Can they really be that stupid, that corrupt? It is hard to believe.
There are 38 million flu cases every year, if you tracked the spread of the flu you would be amazed also how contagious the flu is, this is no different. Some people will die who would not otherwise have died – that is way of life and nature. How is this different from the annual 100 children dying of the flu – society does not go insane and quarantine itself because children die of the flu.
How is this different from the 80 people who die in car accidents every day? More now that blood drives have been cancelled.
The left wants to throw the world into a great depression to achieve political control and kill our constitution once and for all.
The left will attempt to attribute every death to corona virus to cause more panic.
CDC Statistics:
In 2018, a total of 2,839,205 resident deaths were registered in the United States. 7,779 per day.
In 2017, a total of 2,813,503 resident deaths were registered in the United States. 7,708 per day.
In 2016, a total of 2,744,248 resident deaths were registered in the United States. 7,497 per day.
