Oklahoma reports more than 1,900 new COVID-19 cases, 15 additional deaths – KOCO Oklahoma City

TONIGHT, AN INSIDE LOOK AT HOW THE STAFF AT ONE EMERGENCY ROOM IS DEALING WITH ALL THIS. KOCO’S DILLON RICHARDS JOINS US NOW WITH THAT STORY. DILLON: HERE AT MERCY HOSPITAL, LIKE MANY OTHERS IN THE METRO, THEY’RE USING AN OUTDOOR STRUCTURE TO HELP TRIAGE PATIENTS. FINDING SPACE TO SEE EVERYBODY. WE DON’T WANT PATIENTS TO HAVE TO WAIT AT ALL. AND UNFORTUNATELY, IT’S BEEN A REALITY OVER THE LAST MONTH OR SO THAT WE’VE HAD LONGER WAIT TIMES THAN WE’RE USED TO. DILLON: THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR OF MERCY’S EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT DOCTOR LANCE WATSON SAYS IT’S NOT JUST HOW MANY PATIENTS THEY’RE SEEING. MORE THAN THAT, IT’S JUST HOW SICK THEY ARE. >> IT’S MORE CHALLENGING. IT TAKES MORE TIME TO EVALUATE THEM IN THE EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT, AND THEN IT’S CAUSING MORE ISSUES WI ADMITTING PATIENTS UPSTAIRS BECAUSE THERE’S JUST NOT ENOUGH ROOM AT TIMES. DILLON: SIMILAR CHALLENGES AT MANY METRO HOSPITALS. AT ST. ANTHONY, THIS WEEK THEY ADDED OUTDOOR TENTS TO HELP TREAT PATIENTS. BUT THE BIG WORRY IS THAT WE MAY NOT HAVE SEEN THE WORST OF IT YET. >> OVER THE NEXT PROBABLY FOUR TO SIX WEEKS THAT WE COULD SEE A CONTINUED INCREASE OF PATIENTS, AND JUST REALLY MORE ISSUES WITH CAPACITY IN THE HOSPITALS. DILLON: DR. WATSON SAYS BEDS ARE A CHALLENGE, BUT EVEN MORE IS MAKING SURE HOSPITALS HAVE ENOUGH STAFF AVAIL
