  1. I think my hospital is doing a great job. We have 1 hospital that has just positive cases and then the hospital I’m at (they belong to the same group) we have positive cases that need specialty things like surgery, OB, or dialysis that the other hospital can’t do. We also have some rule out cases. Our entire unit (38 beds) at one time was turned into a negative airflow unit but currently we have 9 beds that are used for Covid patients. Our PPE supplies are in good stock and we have a person that watches the room and everybody has to sign out everything they take.
