1,000 U.S. Hospitals Are ‘Critically’ Short on Staff

Translated by: MOS Education Team – Angelina

About 24% of nearly 5,000 hospitals are experiencing shortages — the most since the start of the pandemic — and another 100 anticipate shortages this week CNN reported on Jan.11 citing the newest data released by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Meanwhile, medical centers nationwide predict a single-day record for in-patient care of coronavirus patients as soon as Tuesday.

The staffing shortages at medical centers come as more than a third of U.S. counties have set COVID-19 case records just 10 days into the new year, a USA TODAY analysis of Johns Hopkins University data shows. The six highest single-day reports on record have occurred in the last eight days, since Jan. 3.  And Monday’s total of 1.38 million was four times the number reported on Sunday. In Los Angeles County, infections among hospital workers and other health care employees have risen as cases skyrocket, exacerbating staff shortages at medical centers.
