Omaha hospital may get overwhelmed with COVID-19 cases
The local and state official said on Friday that they are keeping a close eye on the healthcare centers and other medical centers as they worry it may become overwhelmed and workers may get fatigued.
Leaders at Nebraska medicine said that they are dealing with around 70 patients every day on an average.
But as the number of severe cases is increasing, they face some problems showing how delicate the system is.
"It's, you know, critically important to understand that the system is relatively fragile and can still be overwhelmed," said Dr. Mark Rupp, chief of the University of Nebraska Medical Center's Division of Infectious Diseases and medical director of infection control and epidemiology.
According to these leaders, the number of patients who require extra and intensive care is increasing day by day.
Douglas County Health Department Director Dr. Adi Pour said the hospitals' high capacity is not directly related to COVID-19 only.
She said that they are looking at the factors which are making up the full percentage.
"We've been dealing with the COVID pandemic for several months in our area and, quite frankly, the folks who are caring for these people in the critical care setting with the most ill patients, are fatigued and we are stressed," he said.
