The pressure on hospitals has become so great that the Netherlands has been using the help of Germany again since Friday. According to Ernst Kuipers of the National Network Acute Care, this is inevitable. “We have little choice at the moment. The hospitals are full, ”he said the day before the transfer. North Rhine-Westphalia has made 80 ic beds available for patients from our country.
Dutch hospitals are also forced to scale up regular care. To limit the damage as much as possible, the LCPS is busy spreading patients across the regions on a daily basis. In the past 24 hours there have been 17 transfers between regions.
As far as the figures presented on Monday show, the stricter corona measures have not yet had an effect on hospital admissions.
New interventions threaten to prevent a peak like during the first wave. At its peak, some 1,400 corona patients were in intensive care and about 2,500 in the nursing ward.
In the past 24 hours, 22 people have been moved to hospitals in other parts of the country. In addition, an unknown number of patients were moved to other hospitals within their own region, for example from Rotterdam to Goes or from Amsterdam to Alkmaar.
