This is what they chose. It just sucks that the responsible adults who vaxed and masked will be denied care for their cancer, accidents, heart attacks, etc.

I would suggest the triage consider if patients are vaccinated or unvaccinated (except for medical reasons) against COVID in the first place..

A pair of friends just got COVID even though they had their shots. Of course they go everywhere unmasked and hit the bars and concerts. Then she says to mrs edmo, "you know the masks really don't keep you from getting it, it's more about not spreading it."

She says that with no sense of irony. No understanding that it might have prevented her form getting it. And apparently no gottdam farking realization that's she's been spreading it around herself because "masks don't work."

JFC, when did my friends catch the stupid?

This is Idaho. They'll make a law that says Real Americans who don't get the Fauci 5G Mark of the Beast get treated as soon as their Republican voter registration is verified. liberal traitors who don't trust Jesus to be their vaccine are on their own.

Unfortunately, their patients are going to end up being treated in Washington, maybe Oregon too, which did things right but are still in crisis due to delta. This despite Idaho actively stirring up political disaster in those blue states.

I have nothing good to say about Idaho.

Barely functional. Stretched to the limit. Facing nursing shortages for years before the pandemic and now running nearly two years in with early retirements, deaths, resignations, and shiat tons following mission and/or cash with high renumeration visiting nursing gigs in worse hit areas. Even in Seattle, non emergency surgeries are being pushed. Non-clinical staff are being volun-told to take admin part of clinical staff's duties on rotation to free up their patient forward time. Holding steady, plans in place for worse, but stretched.

About a month ago I heard a local NPR reporter interviewing local Idahoans at a rodeo event, and in between their screeching about liberals, how half of Oregon should really be Idaho, and repeated mentions of how they've got this one token non-white Native American acquaintance that they're willing to tolerate, they offhandedly mentioned how little they thought that Covid was anything real.

So I'm hardly surprised. White racists are the real victims, according to them. And I must agree: they're victims of themselves and their own hate.

I am confident that I can solve the problems regarding inadequate hospital space: Discharge every single antivaxxer. Give them a bottle of Betadine, a tube of apple flavored horse deworming paste, and a bottle of fish tank cleaner, and send them on their way.

In fact, deny any and all medical treatment to antivaxxers. Providers should limit their interactions with antivaxxers to telling them the most effective ways to commit suicide.

The important thing here is that your friends are vaccinated which means they're not plague rats despite spreading plague and refusing to wear masks. Vaccination is like baptism. It means you're one of the good guys so your sins don't count anymore.

It takes a special kind of asshole to drag one's young children into a political statement they probably don't understand. They're not doing it because they believe in your cause, dipfarks, they're doing it because young kids inherently want to please their parents, and you're abusing that trust.

No. Victims are unwillingly harmed by an external force. These are volunteers, so whatever nasty fate awaits them is of their own creation.

Here we go folks, we got here one genuine ICU BED at a reputable hospital!

Opening bid is only $5000!  Do I hear $5000?  Five thousand- YES!  I got five thousand from the Boomer in the back.

Now can I get TEN thousand?  $10,000?  Anyone?  Do I hear - YES!  From the Congressman who is asking we don't show his face.  Guessin' he's a Republican.  Alright...

Can I get Twenty- yes!  I got twenty- no, do I got thirty, thirty- yes!  $30,000 for the - oh wait, another hand went up!  Is that $50,000?  Oh nice fifty K do I hear-

Goodness folks, I just got a bid from an anonymous Fox News employee for $100,000 for this once in a lifetime - well, maybe no everyone's lifetime but certainly yours if you fail to win this auction - genuine ICU hospital bed!

Can anyone top that?  OH there it is... $150,000!  This is exciting folks and - look, there we go, $200,000... wait... $250,000 from the Russian oligarch in the front row who's on "medical vacation."  Do I have anyone higher?  Anyone?  Going once, going twice.... SOLD for a quarter million dollars to Igor Hoarbiotr and his lovely, twelve year old... oh girlfriend?  Whatever, isn't capitalism and for profit medical care the greatest thing ever, folks?

That's not going to help the shortage really at all.

Our local hospital gave a statement on the news last week saying if they sent every vaccinated ICU patient they had home, they'd be sending home one person.

More than 95% of the people who have ended up in the hospital this summer have been unvaccinated. If you got your shots and don't have a separate major health condition (ie severe diabetes, cancer, bronchitis, etc), your worst case scenario if you get Covid is likely a couple of days bedrest at home.
