Just a random anecdotal sample of patients over the four-day:
58♀ Stroke-that wasn't-a-stroke, Dx with Bell's Palsy - Vaxx x3
61♂ Sudden cardiac arrest, massive coagulopathy - Vaxx x 3
15♀ Chest pain x 2 months - Vaxx x 2
42♀ New onset Bell's Palsy - Vaxx x2
24♂ chest pain, elevated troponin - Vaxx x 2
Total ER-wide COVID patients - 1: 94♀ - Vaxx x 3, slight SOB, totally stable
Total ER-wide unvaxxed COVID patients - 0
I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop, when my vaxxed co-workers start dropping. Oops. too late:
One nurse, on shift: 36♂ Chest pain, tachycardia, elevated BP, became a patient mid-shift. Vaxx x 3.
That's after screening out any cases where meth or any other illicit substance use was onboard as a factor. I also don't know what my co-workers dealt with, so that's only my 4% of our total patient load.
And we're just one hospital in the county, seeing maybe 2% of the daily patient load.
Nothing to see here; move along.
Looks like I'll have job security here until I'm 90.
FTR, pre-COVID, a diagnosis of Bell's Palsy happened maybe once a month in any ER I've worked in the last quarter century. Currently, it's daily to every other day. Wee uptick, wot?
AFAIK, the staff is about 25% unvaxxed nurses, but there's not a single unvaxxed doc. Gonna be a bitch until they start training pureblood doctors, from a vastly reduced pool, maybe a decade on from now, once we start losing docs.
Factor that into your Boogaloo calculations, kids. It's going to be a bumpy ride.
