I've seen an conservative Okie change their stance on something.

I meet a couple on a dive boat off Australia.  He was a doctor from Tulsa and she was much younger and very appreciative of the holiday trip downunder.  I asked him if he was from that religious Oral Roberts hospital and he said no and mentioned where he worked.  "Oh you would know Mr X then?"   He said he worked for Mr X. I knew that Mr X was the hospital president.  I said Mr X oldest daughter had considered his same specialty but went into Vet school and was now working at the zoo.  His GF asked me about how she liked it and I pointed out she brought home lion cubs for a holiday to make sure they were properly taken care of so they had lions cubs tormenting their cat. At that point the doctor decided I knew way too much about his bosses family.  His poor girlfriend became a niece sometime during that trip and had to stopped sitting on his lap.

Sure, there's no ICU beds, but have you checked the only indicator that matters, the Bald Eagle Tears of Pride Freedom Meter? That's off the charts!

Well, it would be, but the guy who changes it called off sick the last nineteen days.

Only 5 in 100 getting really sick, instead of 10 in 100 is milder. But when 3 times as many get sick, you get more people needing a hospital bed. And it may be closer to 4 times as many getting sick because many people are simply skipping the whole getting tested part unless they get real sick.

Sounds like rugged individualists who become desperately sick should take personal responsibility and travel out of state to find ICU beds.

I bet if you send all of the unvaccinated by choice to palliative care, the ICU bed problem would be solved.

Don't call me cruel... I'm not the one who made them not get a freely available vaccine. Assuming they don't have a medical condition that prevents vaccination, and the vaccine is approved for their age group:

If ambulance A leaves a scene 4 miles away at 30 miles per hour for city central hospital at 8:30am with a sick unvaccinated COVID patient, and ambulance B leaves a scene 12 miles away at 70 miles per hour for city central hospital at 8:46am with a sick unvaccinated COVID patient, when does the gofundme and prayer warrior post get put on facebook?

Dozens of Patients Wait for ICU Beds As Oklahoma City Hospitals Declare They've Run Out

FYI:  You can actually have a bed delivered to your home from Casper.com.  I think it has like a 30-day satisfaction guaranteed trial program, too.

my whole family in the US has had covid at this point. Let me list them for you:

my dad, his wife. Trumpers but vaxxed.
my sister, her husband, their 3 small kids. non-Trumpers, all vaxed.
1 aunt, Trumper, vaxed, 1 uncle, Trumper, non-vaxed.

only one other aunt and uncle set havent gotten covid that they know of.

guess which of the above got sick and ended up in the hospital for a week (and is still there but will probably recover)? go on, guess.

I've actually heard rumors of hospitals doing just this, giving gift cards apologizing for ER waits and directing them to nearby hospitals (of competing health systems) so that their load is lightened.

Why flex that you know the doc's boss? So his girlfriend was young, and? Was she underaged, then the OP should have notified the authorities. If not, mind your business.

You don't even need to leave the country, MA for example currently has ICU bed space in all counties with some counties as low as 60% occupied. We are 92.9% with at least 1 does.

I encountered the same scenario just three years ago and multiple times as my father was going thru bouts of severe rhuematoid arthritis and because of the side effects of the treatments, his organs were failing.  He had to go to the hospital ER multiple times back then.  Each time, he spent at the min. 24 hrs. in the ER waiting for beds to open up to be moved to a room.  It was the same scenario painted in the article, and all anyone here thinks is it's something new and most likely Trump's fault.

All citizens of the United States should have to report to a vaccination center. If they have no REAL reason to not get an vaccine (no religious exceptions, no exceptions for anyone who won't simply die from inoculation), either get the jab or a tap from a restrained bolt to the base of the skull (no reason to waste drugs or bullets).

You're describing waiting in the ED for a regular room. Most hospitals experience this occasionally. We're talking about waiting in hallways to even get seen in the ED. And it's happening on a much larger scale.

Not so CSB:

Found out yesterday that a patient of mine was in the ER and left against medical advice on Sunday. I called the guy to tell him get back in there, because he's Covid positive and based on his history and the blood they were able to pull its not looking so great for him. His wife was biatching about how they had to wait 6 hours and they watched the national guard drinking coffee and doing nothing, meanwhile I have patients currently admitted that had to wait 4 DAYS in the ER for a bed.
