Aspirus Saving Hospital Beds for the ‘Sickest of the Sick’

November 19, 2020

WAUSAU, Wis. — One of central Wisconsin’s largest health systems plans to send some coronavirus patients home to provide hospital beds for the “sickest of the sick.”

Aspirus CEO Matt Heywood says facilities at its Wausau hospital are nearly full and staff resources are strained. He says the hospital will move some patients who would otherwise be hospitalized into home care.

Heywood say they’ll rely on nursing calls and telecommunication and will ask patients’ family members to help provide care, Wisconsin Public Radio reported.

Wisconsin Hospital Association data showed 2,277 coronavirus patients were hospitalized across the state on Wednesday, the highest recorded during the pandemic.
