    Closing 3 hospitals is a little misleading. 2 are stand alone ER facilities that started popping up a few years ago. While a few patients might spend the night that's not really what they do. The surgical hospital is a good size facility but I don't know how many beds they use or how many procedures they do up there. Since their model revolves around procedures being done it's understandable that they're slow. The census overall across the system is down like the article states though

    I work in a speciality area. We've been slow since the hospital clamped down on non emergent cases. We have a number of contract staff at the moment. They've been pretty much told they don't have to report to work for the last week and a half. I only worked 2 partial days last week. We didn't have any procedures scheduled today so I was told yesterday I could just stay home. I am on call in case an emergency shows up though.

    In,

    No sarcasm.

    Why, if cv is so prevalent are so many medical facilities closing shop?

    Why aren't cv victims heading out for treatment in droves rather like the 'awake dead'...if you will?

    I just looked. They don’t personally recommend the distance and masks but refer to the CDC and WHO, that obviously trot those lines.

    Kind of like when talking to my employees, I don’t personally believe it all but I’ll say it’s the company policy. Put it on them, not me.

    Break.

    We are being “encouraged” to wear masks. Pretty sure I got an evil look from my boss today, I’m the only supervisor not wearing one. I expect a mandatory policy soon.

    Quote the f-ing who?

    Really quote a commie subsidiary? A china apologist?

    Are you f-ing kidding me?

    The cdc aren't a bunch a commies like the 'who', but their shine has lost it's glimmer...they sound good...but kinda/actually a lot, suck at their jobs...

    Because they prepared in a "Hard" way. All electives are cancelled etc. This leaves hospitals absolutely BLEEDING cash. A cow can only bleed for so long.

    ...or if your looking for a good conspiracy theory of whats really going on, lemme know, glad to appease.... :green:
