California Orders Hospitals With ICU Space To Accept Transfers

The California Public Health Department is ordering hospitals with available ICU bed space to accept transfers.

It's also ordering hospitals overwhelmed by COVID-19 patients to cancel elective surgeries. State public health director Doctor Tomas Aragon said in a statement the order is designed to ensure all Californians can receive appropriate care. Hospitals in the Southern California and San Joaquin regions both report 0% staffed intensive care space. The Bay Area region has just under 6%, the Sacramento Valley Region reports just under 12% and the Northern California region has almost 30% of its ICU beds available.
