"Our 18 bed ED did hold patients but we were lucky that the NICU was closed and they placed beds side by side with over 30 intubated patients in addition to the 32 bed ICU which was full. It was horrible but not as bad as our free standing ER's which have 9 beds and all were holding 6+ patients on oxygen for days. Any intubated patients were transferred to our ER, but the ER doc's at the FED's were working as hospitalist as well as taking care of new patients."
