Close to 1,000 Cleveland Clinic caregivers infected with Covid-19
[www.cnbc.com]

The Cleveland Clinic’s Chief Caregiver Officer Kelly Hancock said that her hospital is “experiencing close to 1,000 of our caregivers who’ve been affected by Covid-19, and unable to come in and care for those patients.”

The United States recorded more than 3 million new coronavirus cases this month alone.

Hancock urged that America’s health-care workers need all the help they can get right now.

The Cleveland Clinic reported that 970 caregivers are out due to the virus, triple the number from two weeks ago. In the greater Cleveland area, Covid-19 cases are on the rise, according to the Ohio Department of Health. There was an average of 83 new cases between September 23-29, but between November 11-17 the average was 1,134 new cases.

Hancock told host Shepard Smith that despite the infections of its health-care workers, that the Cleveland Clinic is still able to uphold its standard of care for patients.

“Right now we have adequate staffing, we’re able to mobilize our caregivers to the areas they’re needed most, but we continue to meet frequently throughout the day to continue to assess the situation for both our caregivers, as well as the bed capacity,” Hancock said.

Not a surprise. I was in the Clinic ER with my son two weekends ago. The lack of precautions was kind of staggering. I was wearing a good fabric mask, and they gave my a surgical mask on top of it. I double masked and I damn near hosed myself down with hand sanitizer afterwards.

The staff was only wearing surgical masks. No gloves.

FWIW the are the largest employer in Cleveland.

Wow.

Wife of my buddy is a nurse at KU Med (very large hospital) here in KC. He told me there are 500 staff cases. That was almost a week ago.
