Logan Regional Hospital's ICU Beds Are Full — And So Are Many Others In Utah

Logan Regional Hospital's ICU beds are full due to an influx of COVID-19 patients, and the hospital's options to transfer serious patients elsewhere are limited due to similar situations throughout the state.

That's according to a joint statement from Logan Regional Hospital and the Bear River Health Department on Tuesday addressing the recent influx of COVID-19 cases in Cache Valley and across Utah.

 

"This situation is dire and means if there are urgent cases there is nowhere for them to go at our hospital, and even less ability to transfer them outside of our hospital as most facilities in our state are in a similar situation,” stated Taki May, Logan Regional’s medical director. “The past 18 months have been exhausting for our caregivers and this pandemic has taken a huge toll on all of us mentally and emotionally.” Read the rest of the story on HJnews.com.
