1/n #COVIDBangalore #BedCrisis
@mla_sudhakar says over 70% beds not utilised yet
@Sowmyareddyr relates a bed hunt that went for hours
We read about HCW shortage/morale down
We hear doctors in line of duty struggling to find beds for themselves
There are 2 ways to go about this:
1. Say all is well and the problem 'goes away'
2. Accept there is a problem - first step towards solving one

Shall we for a moment set the first one aside?
3/n Bed maths
Bed = not cot+bedding+Monitor+/-Vent
Bed = All above + manpower
10 vent ICU beds = 3 nurses + 1 doctor /shift (least) = 15 nurses + 4-5 drs on roster
1000 such = 1500 -2K nurses and 500-600drs on the floor
+ All support staff (Housekeeping, lab, pharmacy....)
4/n #BedCrisis
Need to have a real time app for that
1. App itself (tech)
2. All stake holders feed the app realtime
What are the bottlenecks for this? Need to resolve immediately @DHFWKA @BSYBJP @iaspankajpandey
#COVIDBangalore #BedCrisis
Let us choose between
A) Transparency = can do something about
B) All is well = crisis will deepen = HCW morale will tank = public panic escalates = costs lives = All is lost @ranjanikanth_ @sunithaTOI @DarshanDevaiahB @Suraksha_Pinnu @epigiri
