Oregon’s hospitals are full and have been for several weeks. That isn’t going to change any time soon.
The hospital has four intensive care units, and they're all full. With more COVID19 patients on the way, managers are gearing up for "crisis standards of care" to stretch staff and set up new beds.
Younger people are getting sicker, faster, as doctors and nurses watch.
As of Thursday, all 24 beds were full in the ICU, including five patients with the virus. Three of the infected patients are on ventilators.
