David Rhem - General Counsel, NOCH
 
This region of Michigan is at a tipping point with COVID cases. NOCH, along with most if not all other West MI hospitals, is completely full. Staffing shortages have exacerbated the situation. Visitor restrictions are back in effect. At this point, 70% of new patients are COVID relate with all patients unvaccinated. Patients tend to be younger. Non-essential surgeries are still taking place but this situation may change soon.
 
NOCH is working with area colleges to accelerate training for nursing candidates. Currently, NOCH staff are around 70% vaccinated with a goal of 100%, other than those granted religious or medical exemptions.
 
David urged everyone to get vaccinated. If you go inside, wear a mask. Get a booster. Convince family members or friends who are unvaccinated to get vaccinated.
