“The current outbreak of COVID-19 is the most challenging disaster ever faced by health systems in the St. Louis area.”

ST. LOUIS — An approximately 40-member federal aid team is coming to help larger hospital systems in the St. Louis area as they deal with surges in patients due to the omicron variant of COVID-19.

The St. Louis Metropolitan Pandemic Task Force, which encompasses the region’s four major health systems, has asked for help from the federal government. These systems include BJC HealthCare, Mercy, SSM Health and St. Luke’s Hospital.

In a letter, the task force exposes the grueling climate that hospital systems face due to the omicron variant.

In part, it reads: “The current surge of COVID-19 is the most challenging disaster ever faced by health systems in the St. Louis area. We have attempted to weather this storm alone; however, we we are now at the point where we have to ask for help from the federal government.

Task force leaders pointed to record admissions and hospitalizations.

On Thursday evening, a spokeswoman for the task force confirmed that the aid had been approved. The spokeswoman said they were still working out the details, including what the team’s work would entail. She said more information should be available in the coming days.

The latest figures from the task force show the seven-day rolling average of hospitalizations fell from 1,360 on Monday to 1,374 on Tuesday. This hit a new seven-day moving average record.

A new daily hospitalization record was also set for hospitalizations confirmed positive for COVID, rising from 1,377 on Monday to 1,444 on Tuesday.

The letter continues: “With each passing hour, our community is more exposed, not only to the spread of Omicron, but also to the delayed or inaccessible care it creates. Additionally, our healthcare workers are not at immune to this virus, falling ill or having to take time off work to care for a sick family member has put unimaginable pressure on our ability to care for the sick and injured.

BJC Healthcare has even limited elective procedures for the time being due to staff shortages. SSM Health has also limited some of its procedures.

Advocacy from the task force also shared that current resources are stretched beyond their limits to provide effective and safe care, calling this unsustainable.

That’s why St. Louis health care systems are asking for help from the federal government to support staffing at our regional hospitals.

“Our hope is that our federal partners will quickly deploy resources to help our exhausted and demoralized workforce,” the letter said.

With task force Dr Alex Garza saying that if the team comes, “It will be all patient care – doctors, nurses. Rather than scattering a small amount across geography, they will want them focus in specific areas, so they can have the most impact in the region.”

It also comes at a time when everything is on deck.

Much like other hospital systems, Mercy asks colleagues in jobs other than patient care to sign up and help with tasks outside of their regular job descriptions, such as stocking and refreshing supplies. , transporting patients and assisting patients with daily care activities.

Overall, health systems remain committed to serving, but the letter says hospitals need the full support of the federal government to continue their mission.

In December, President Joe Biden announced new measures to protect Americans and help communities and hospitals fight omicron. In a White House briefing, Pres. Biden shared his plan to deploy additional medical staff and expand hospital capacity.

In late 2021, Missouri Governor Mike Parson allowed the pandemic-related state of emergency to expire, citing the availability of vaccines.

“The state stands ready to provide assistance and a response, but a state of emergency is no longer necessary,” Parson said in the press release.

COVID-19 emergency orders have allowed hospitals to fill staffing gaps by shortening onboarding time, turning hospital rooms into intensive care units, and increasing the capacity to operate with more people. beds than they are legally permitted.

The Missouri Hospital Association represents all hospitals in the state and does education and advocacy on its behalf.

Spokesman Dave Dillon said within 24 hours of that expiration, they were able to grant certain waivers to the Department of Health and Senior Services that would allow certain functions to continue.

But Dr. Garza shares that there are still obstacles.

“The Missouri National Guard cannot be used for any COVID mission and that limits that capability from a personnel perspective,” he says.

Dr. Garza says that if a federal team arrived, it could take less than a week to identify where the team would go.

From there, it would be a while before they could officially put boots on the field.

As for the others who are receiving help, right now there is a federal team stationed in Kansas City.

Health authorities in Victoria say IVF services will resume ‘as quickly as possible’, after a heartbreaking video of a woman’s desperate plea went viral.

On January 6, elective surgery in Victoria was reduced to only urgent procedures as the Omicron strain of COVID-19 spread across the state.

Watch Melanie’s plea to Victoria leaders in the video above

The temporary pause was put in place to free up hospital resources and Health Minister Martin Foley said IVF clinics were being contacted and asked to cancel their appointments.

However, a Victorian woman named Melanie posted a moving video on the issue on her Instagram page on Sunday, addressed to both Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews and the Minister of Health.

It has been viewed over half a million times.

“My name is Melanie and I am currently going through the IVF process and I really want to let you know that this is not something that I chose to do,” Melanie says in the video.

“No other person who is going through IVF or who has had IVF or who is about to start IVF has chosen to do so. It’s something we do as our only chance to have a child.

“We tried everything else. Trust me’ – Melanie, IVF patient

“We tried everything else. Believe me. We have tried everything else.

“To impose a blanket ban on IVF for three months…you can’t have a clue what that’s going to do to some women.”

Melanie said she was ‘on her knees’ begging the prime minister and health minister to speak to experts and women to ‘put their bodies on 90 day break’.

“We think COVID is a pandemic? I tell you, infertility is a pandemic and now we are dealing with both,” she said in tears.

IVF break timeline not aligned with code brown

On Tuesday, Acting Health Minister James Merlino called for a statewide code brown for all metropolitan and six regional hospitals due to rising COVID-19 cases.

The order, which comes into effect Wednesday noon and is expected to last four to six weeks, allows staff to be deployed to priority and changing service areas.

Mr Melino said the emergency code was unrelated to IVF and work is underway to resume those services

But Mr Melino confirmed the emergency code was unrelated to IVF and that work was underway to resume those services “as soon as possible”.

“I have dear friends who are currently going through IVF or have been through IVF. I know what an emotional toll it is, what a financial toll it is,” he said.

“This is in many cases a last opportunity to create a family and I absolutely empathize.

“As soon as we can increase or resume services for IVF patients, we absolutely will and we are looking at what we can do now.”

Federal Women’s Economic Security Minister Jane Hume released a statement on Tuesday calling on the Victorian government to immediately reverse its decision.

“I have looked at the stories of many women in IVF who have tried every possibility to start a family and it was the last and only option. Some women are not 3 months old,” the statement read.

“Victorians for 2 years did the right thing, locked themselves in when needed, isolated when needed and got vaccinated. After all of this, for some, being told they can’t have IVF now to have the opportunity to have children is heartbreaking.

EastEnders star Tamzin Outhwaite has revealed her boyfriend Tom Child was rushed to hospital after suffering from ‘bad stomach pains’.

The actress, who played Mel Owen in the BBC One soap opera, told her followers that Tom ended up “having his appendix removed”.

“Hello everyone,” she wrote on Twitter. “My guy went to A and E with severe stomach pains and ended up in the theater with his appendix.

‘If you want to laugh, go to his insta @tc_childie.

“He never had an op or morphine. He apparently cracked the doctors. #morphinevirgin.’

Fans were quick to comment on their messages of support, with one writing, “Hope Tamzin recovers soon.”

Another added: “Hope he gets better soon.”

Tamzin, 50, is best known to audiences for playing Mel Owen (formerly Mel Healy and very briefly Mel Beale) on EastEnders, a role she originally held between 1998 and 2002.

The star reprized the role 16 years later, when Mel returned to the square in 2018 with some business to take care of.

Mel was written out of the BBC One soap opera at the end of 2019 when Tamzin decided to leave, and the character was killed off after a spectacular car chase with nemesis Sharon Mitchell (Letitia Dean).

Tamzin is also known for her work on New Tricks and Red Cap.

OKLAHOMA (KFOR) — Metro hospitals are on the brink of stagnation as staff shortages continue and patients continue to pour in, but health systems and first responders are not alone in their fight. The latest wave is also affecting schools and workplaces across Oklahoma as state lawmakers continue to debate how to protect Oklahomans from COVID-19 weeks before the 2022 legislative session. federal vaccine mandates and want to incorporate these views into state laws.

“Trying to argue with the feds about who’s in charge is not productive,” said Sen. Julia Kirt, D-OKC.

“It has become so politicized that I think more than at any time it needs to be put in the hands of the individual citizen,” said Sen. Rob Standridge, R-Norman.

“Before 2020, vaccines were good,” said Sen. Mary Boren, D-Norman.

At the Oklahoma State Capitol, the debate over how best to protect Oklahomans from COVID-19 is raging. A day after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a federal vaccination mandate for big business, Oklahoma lawmakers are scrambling to do the same here.

“I’ve seen several bills that just eliminate warrants for sure,” said Standridge, a pharmacy owner.

The COVID-19 vaccine administered.

Standridge authored one of at least seven bills limiting vaccination mandates. His bills allow employees to make claims against companies if they are injured after being forced to get vaccinated.

“If you force someone to put something, a chemical in their body, you should be responsible for the results,” he said.

Sen. David Bullard, R-Durant, also introduced a bill on Friday, making it “unlawful for any federal or state agency, political subdivision, or state-contracted enterprise to require any resident of Oklahoma to undergoes or receives a COVID-19 vaccination or any variation thereof.

Senate Democrats say it looks more like political theater and a pushback from the federal government.

“They’re really taking advantage of the political climate around COVID,” Boren said.

“We need to stop the spread of COVID, rather than arguing over who controls which part,” Kirt said.

Meanwhile, across the Sooner State, school districts have shut down or turned to virtual learning because so many teachers are sick with COVID.

Mid-Del schools said Tuesday their students would be back in class but must wear masks. However, the district said mask denials that were submitted earlier this year will still be honored.

Oklahoma City Public Schools previously announced that students would resume in-person learning on Tuesday. On Friday, the district said students would learn virtually that day instead. However, OKCPS said there was always the possibility that they would stick to online learning if there were still staffing issues next week.

“When school is closed, you know, we struggle,” said Norman Public Schools parent Angelica Johnson.

Johnson is just one of many parents forced to choose between working or staying home with their child. Fortunately, the Norman Parks and Rec Department stepped in, offering relief to parents at $25 per child at three locations. The parents thought the care was worth it.

“The importance of having them here supporting me as a single parent has been immeasurable,” Johnson said.

“We’re all a community working in this area right now,” said Mitchell Richardson, the 12th Avenue parks and recreation center supervisor.

SPENCER, W.Va. – Roane General Hospital opened a new oncology and infusion center on Thursday.

The unit offers treatment rooms and support space for cancer patients. According to Roane General Hospital, it employs a full oncology staff.

The opening was done in partnership with West Virginia University Cancer Institute and WVU Medicine Camden-Clark Medical Center.

“Some aspects of cancer care can and should be delivered close to patients’ homes, and medical oncology and chemotherapy services are part of that,” said Dr. Hannah Hazard-Jenkins, director of the WVU Cancer Institute.

“A cancer diagnosis is already an incredible burden for patients, so finding and receiving cancer care shouldn’t add to that stress. We are honored to have patients in Roane and surrounding counties entrust their care to us, and we are thrilled to provide these services to them.

Albert Wright, president and CEO of WVU Health System, said improving access to care is one of the hospital system’s primary goals.

“Roane General Hospital is a spectacular hospital. It is also a critical hospital in a part of the state where they are doing a great job taking care of people,” he added.

Health care officials held a groundbreaking ceremony at the facility on Thursday.

Johnson County officials overseeing the EMS system are considering changing the way ambulance calls are handled as medical resources have been strained by the latest wave of COVID-19 in the Kansas City metro area.

As emergency medical resources have been strained by staff shortages and a resurgence of COVID-19, Johnson County officials are considering changing the way ambulances respond to 911 calls.

Dr Ryan Jacobsen, medical director of the Johnson County EMS system, said on Tuesday options were being considered to eliminate unnecessary service calls such as minor illnesses. This could include a more thorough screening process when making 911 calls before dispatching an ambulance or asking emergency responders to advise patients to stay home, Jacobsen said.

“We’re trying to keep ambulances available for real emergencies, traumatic injuries, car crashes, life-threatening things,” Jacobsen said at a COVID-19 briefing hosted by KU Health System, describing the potential move as unprecedented for Kansas City. region.

In one possible scenario, Jacbosen said emergency medical responders could assess a patient at the scene of a call. Patients would not be transported if they were deemed well enough to recover without going to hospital in some cases.

Jacobsen warned that the potential changes are not intended to discourage residents from calling 911 when they feel they are experiencing a medical emergency. But he said the current situation in Johnson County, which reflects similar challenges felt across the country, has resulted in a reassessment that will reserve available resources, including ambulances and hospital emergency room beds.

KU’s healthcare system had 20 patients waiting in its emergency department for hospital care on Tuesday, said Gail Schuetz, the hospital’s director of nursing. She said the ideal number is zero and the overload has raised “big concerns.”

“It’s a daily, minute-by-minute challenge to make sure our patients get the care they need with the staff we have,” said Schuetz.

Cases of COVID-19 have increased dramatically in the Kansas City metro area in recent times, thanks in large part to the omicron variant. As of Tuesday, the moving average of new COVID-19 cases had risen to 3,554 per day over seven days in Jackson, Platte, Clay, Johnson and Wyandotte counties, according to data on file with The Star. The average for the past week was 2,120 per day.

COVID-19-related deaths are also on the rise. Over the past week, 87 deaths have been reported in the region, bringing the death toll to 3,516 since the start of the pandemic.

The Star’s Lisa Gutierrez and Natalie Wallington contributed to this report.

On January 3, LMPD officers were called near the corner of Northwestern Parkway and Bank Street following reports of a shooting. It was there that they found Jakia Holt. She was rushed to hospital in an attempt to save her life. According to her family, after arriving at the UofL hospital, she was placed on rescue machines. On Saturday she was removed from the resuscitation system and died. “It breaks my heart every time I see that one of our citizens has been killed because of senseless gun violence,” said subway board chairman David James. James said stories like these are getting far too common. “I was in a grocery store two days ago, and a woman walked up to me and told me her son had been killed the day before,” James said. “It just took the air.” He said the worst part about it was to think of how many other parents in recent years can say the same thing. However, he said the city was taking steps to make sure there weren’t many more. “We have fully funded the mayor’s initiatives for fighting violence and reducing gun violence, and we have really invested money and support behind GVI,” said James. GVI or Gun Violence Response is a strategy cities across the country have used to strengthen the relationship between law enforcement and their communities. The way it works is for community leaders to identify the most violent offenders in their area. Then, with the police, they have a meeting where the offenders are informed that they will face dire consequences if they do not stop committing crimes. If the offender wishes to change his life, then he is put in contact with social service providers who provide him with resources, training, etc. to be able to live a life free from violence. It’s a proven method of reducing homicide rates in Oakland, Chicago, Detroit, and New Orleans. He said the metro initially introduced the program in 2020, but has not been successful since. Now, with the newly added allocated funds, he said he has the capacity to make an immediate impact. “GVI will work,” James said. “But operationally and administratively it’s very important that we, as the City of Louisville, give her all the resources she needs to be able to work.” Until that produces results, he said, everyone will have to step up, as recently evidence has shown that no community is immune. “We all play a role in trying to make things better,” James said.

A trio of developers have partnered with Metro for a planned mixed-use development at DC’s Congress Heights subway station.

Metro has completed the sale of a vacant one acre lot at the south entrance to the station. Standard Real Estate Investments, Trammell Crow Company, and the nonprofit National Housing Trust will combine this with two more acres the developers are putting together.



The project would include a 240,000 square foot office building and 179 affordable housing units, supported by the District’s Affordable Housing Developers Tax Relief Program.

This program supports developers who provide housing units made available to DC residents earning 30% to 80% of the region’s median income levels.

The development will be close to the current redevelopment of the former St. Elizabeths Hospital campus into a mixed-use community.

“This mixed-use development on Alabama Avenue Southeast will complement that work and ensure that the two entrances to the Congress Heights subway station bring vibrancy to the neighborhood while advancing DC’s goal of 36,000 new homes. ‘by 2025,’ said the deputy mayor for planning and economics. Development John Falcicchio.

Metro received proceeds of $ 3.1 million for the sale of the vacant land. Metro retains full operational control of the Congress Heights metro station.

This will be the last development partnership for Metro. To date, joint development projects at 27 stations have delivered 13 million square feet of office, residential, hotel and commercial space, according to the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority.

He says his transit-focused developments now contribute $ 42 million in annual local tax revenue.
