BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The eagerly anticipated local hospital census numbers, ordered by Palm Beach County to be provided by all hospitals on Monday, are delayed due to a computer issue.
A senior Palm Beach County official told BocaNewsNow.com that there is still work being completed on the “back end,” but that the data should be public at some point on Wednesday.
Hospitals in Palm Beach County were ordered to provide daily information to the public showing how many people are hospitalized, how many are hospitalized for COVID, how many ICU beds are available, how many ICU beds are in use, and potentially death information as well.
The information is vital for the public to understand the true COVID-19 situation in the community, while being able to make an informed decision about which hospital to visit in the case of an emergency.
Area hospitals are largely packed with COVID-19 patients, with Bethesda East and JFK Medical Center reporting hundreds of COVID “in-patients” in the latest report filed by the United States Department of Health and Human Services.
