New data from the State of Michigan shows that on Thursday, ProMedica was caring for 20 patients with 15 in ICU beds in its four Michigan facilities.
The State of Michigan has started to report patient population, certain medical supplies and preparedness information by hospital system and region; the data can be found online.
The information is provided by hospital system, not by individual facility. The reason for that is “because systems are centrally tracking and distributing personal protection equipment (PPE) amongst their various facilities and looking at patient surge and load from a system perspective,” the state’s website said.
On Thursday, according to the chart, ProMedica was caring for 20 COVID-19 patients in Michigan; this includes 15 COVID-19 patients who were in an intensive care unit bed.
The ProMedica system’s Michigan hospitals are ProMedica Monroe Regional Hospital, ProMedica Bixby Hospital in Adrian, ProMedica Coldwater Regional Hospital in Coldwater, and ProMedica Herrick in Tecumseh.
In addition, the newly available state data includes the days of supply on a list of specific Personal Protective Equipment. As of Thursday, ProMedica’s data is as follows:
- Over 21 days supply of N95 masks.
- 7 to 14 days supply of surgical masks.
- 7 to 14 days supply of surgical gowns.
- 15 to 21 days supply of shields.
- 7 to 14 days supply of gloves.
Other data is posted by emergency preparedness regions. Monroe County is in Region 2 South on those charts, grouped in City of Detroit and Monroe, Washtenaw and Wayne counties. As a result of the populations in that region, Region 2 South shows up as having the most available hospital beds and intensive care unit beds as compared to other Michigan regions.
Specifically, Thursday’s data shows there are 7,125 hospital beds in Region 2 South. This includes 1,236 ICU beds. There are 24,030 hospital beds including 3,100 ICU beds in all of Michigan.
The Michigan counties that have the most COVID-19 cases are Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties; an area that includes the city of Detroit
