Internal department managers: “In large resolutions we do not collapse, in small ones – we are in collapse”
Prof. Avishai Ellis, chairman of the Association of Internal Medicine and director of the internal medicine department at Beilinson Hospital, said: “We decided to report not from Excel spreadsheets but from the field. Of the 111 inpatient wards, more than 40% were converted to corona wards. “A total of about 50 inpatient wards have become corona wards and their number is increasing every day. Out of 111 inpatient wards, only 60 inpatient wards remain in which our critically ill patients are treated. The significance is tragic.”
Prof. Alice added: “This is a reduction of 1,500 beds from the total number of internal medicine departments, which stands at about 3,000,” and later emphasized that “politicians and the media do not understand the tragedy of the disappearance of beds and staff. Misleading the public when describing the number of critically ill patients as a measure of the difficult situation. “
“Dealing with critically ill and dying patients is tragic and difficult, but is a partial picture of the situation. What is hidden from the public and decision makers – the drastic decline of hospitals to treat critically ill patients. We do not have enough doctors, nurses, hospital beds, wards and paramedics. “In private hospitals, the situation has not changed. Internal doctors are a specialty and not a list of equipment.”
Finally, he turned to the public and said: “This is a true alarm. We from the wards tell you that the situation is bad. That the corona affects other circles of patients whose treatment is severely damaged these days. The virus does not differentiate between attitudes and ethnicity.”
Dr. Ayelet Raz, Director of the Internal Medicine Department at MBAM, said: “The discourse on this disease needs to change from a technical discussion on the number of dead, respirators, respirators and patients in critical condition. We are all. “
Prof. Dror Mevorach, director of the internal medicine department at Hadassah Ein Kerem and the corona department, said: “We have treated more than 1,500 corona patients at Hadassah. Perhaps one of the largest numbers in the country. And I see doctors, nursing staff and medical professionals making great efforts. “At present, the patients are 20 years younger. Last week I counted that 50% of the patients are under the age of 60. There are prolonged hospitalizations in young people.”
Prof. Mevorach added: “The herd vaccine – a concept used by many people – religious and secular as an excuse not to wear masks and continue with a normal lifestyle. “Up to 40,000 deaths in Israel. We can not agree to that. Beyond the pain and suffering, it will lead to the collapse of the health care system.”
The congestion in the hospitals
Officials also referred to hospital administrators’ statements that they were “not collapsing” due to the corona burden. Prof. Alice: “We are in the trenches and trenches and we see the situation for real. We will never be, we will never be treated and not rejected, but a patient who needs treatment, we warn about the quality of care decreasing as the disease and load continue. In some hospitals the situation is relatively under control. There are already more and more descriptions of a situation where things are difficult to manage. “
Prof. Alice explained how many standards were added: “200 standards were sent to hospitals ‘without an address’. About 40, and the Ministry of Health claims 80, reached the internal medicine departments. Most did not reach the destination they needed to reach. In the next pulse, about 450 standards, after Hard efforts of the union, 40-50 percent reached boarding schools. The problem is the staffing problem. We are required to staff the standards from today to tomorrow and we are not able to bring in the talented and good people. We ask the Ministry of Health and Finance These will remain. “
Prof. Raz added: “The word ‘collapse’ is difficult and dramatic, and it is difficult for leaders to say ‘we are collapsing’. If you look at big resolutions we are not collapsing. At the small resolutions of the individual – we are collapsing.”
