re: Health Care Facilities get $37,000 per covid death... - Sam Waterston
Don’t know exact numbers between actual cost vs what can be billed or collected, but simply connecting a patient to a vent, even if for only an hour, costs that much and the cost only goes up after that for additional things like oral care, ventilator complication prophylaxis, etc. I honestly wi...

re: Health Care Facilities get $37,000 per covid death... - Sam Waterston
Lol no, collect it as much as you can and I can’t imagine any system turning that down, but in the end it’s not necessarily some net gain, just less of a loss. Still doesn’t make labeling anyone a covid death because of a positive test if they died from a heart attack ...

re: Health Care Facilities get $37,000 per covid death... - Sam Waterston
The controversy surrounding reporting who died of covid notwithstanding, that’s really not that much money. ICU room alone is 1-2k per night before meds, providers, etc. Ballpark 6-8k/d if they’re not using the most expensive newer experimental meds. Ventilator: 1-2k/d. Covid pts don’t just show up ...

re: The curious case on Andexxa and why Fauci is full of shit - Sam Waterston
As others have said, we carry it, never use it. The opposition to it from experts in the field is pretty broad. I can understand why it was rushed through since the Xa meds have bad outcomes for GIBs and hemorrhagic strokes because of poorly controlled bleeding as a last resort. Not saying it’s righ...

re: "Heroes Work Here" - Sam Waterston
This sign is less for the doctors and nurses and more for the staff being pulled from different areas into these covid units. They’re being voluntold what to do. It’s for EVS, food prep guys and other ancillary staff that make a hospital run for minimal pay that keep hospitals running. They need and...

re: Hospital employees of the OT - Sam Waterston
A little over 100 being tested with reasonable suspicion, maybe occupying 40-50 beds, about 10 positive and half on vents. Regardless what people think, resources are being stretched and those are beds being used. Not saying we’re in panic mode here, just the reality. Elective surgical cases are...
