Gloria Lavitoria at Seton Medical Center

Heavy toll on Filipinx community but fighting spirit helped others survive

SNIPPETS:

Lavitoria was exposed to Covid patients as she was forced to wear the same single-use N95 and same gown during a shift instead of throwing them away and donning new PPE after each patient encounter.

She also cared for a patient who tested negative and had been ruled out for having Covid. Lavitoria and other staff only wore a surgical mask in this patient’s room but then she noticed that they showed signs of Covid so she insisted that they be retested. The patient tested positive.

Less than a week after the nurses’ protest, Lavioria felt cold at the end of her shift. When she got home, she took her temperature and saw that it was 102. She had terrible body aches the next day and went to the ER where she tested positive. She was told she could be admitted or quarantine at home. She chose to go home but then her oxygen saturation dropped.

She was scared that her husband and daughter would get Covid, but luckily, they did not test positive. Her family took her to the hospital and two days later, she was intubated.

After two weeks at Seton, doctors told her family there was nothing more they could do for her. ... ...

But Lavitoria fought for her life. ... ...

Lavitoria is thankful to be given a second chance at life. She got through her experience with prayer groups and support from her nurse colleagues, family, and friends. She had to learn to walk again but told herself to have faith and think about the future. “I was expecting my first grandson when I came out of the hospital. He was born on August 31, 2020.”

Burlington enacts mask mandate, with some proof-of-vaccine exemptions

SNIPPETS:

BURLINGTON — After a fiery meeting     that showcased how polarizing pandemic restrictions have become, city councilors voted unanimously to enact a citywide mask mandate Wednesday evening, requiring businesses to ensure that employees and patrons either wear masks or prove they are vaccinated. ... ...

People do not have to wear masks in restaurants, convenience stores or gyms if everyone in the establishment has shown proof that they are vaccinated, the ordinance stated. In retail stores, masks are required of everyone regardless of vaccination status. Places of worship are exempt from the directive. ... ...

The attendees, most of 🙊🙉🙈 whom disregarded City Hall’s mask requirement, heckled the council throughout its debate , earning rebukes from multiple councilors. ... ...

In addition to the outbursts, a dozen opponents to the mandatethe majority of whom did not live in Burlington blasted the ordinance during the meeting’s public forum.

COVID-19 WEEKLY UPDATE with Emphasis on Vermont

Dobson worries that the problem could become worse, especially if the numbers of Covid patients needing hospitalization continue to rise. He estimates that 50 to 70% of their ICU patients, on average, are there to be treated for Covid, and most of these ICU patients are unvaccinated.

“We just can’t sustain these additional patients in our healthcare system, and it’s really weighing on our staff,” Dobson said. “And it’s really not fair to those in the community that are vaccinated and trying to seek other types of care.”

🚩🥺👉Vermont reports 25 Covid patients in ICU and a record-setting 641 cases

🚨😱👉 Calling for help: Rural hospitals struggle with overwhelmed ICUs, finding beds
“In my 30 years, I’ve never been in a situation wheere we just aren’t able to get patients the care they need when they need it. It’s sort of been the American norm that we can get patients to where they need to go, and there’s always availability and somebody at the other end of the line that says, ‘Yeah sure, we can help you,’” Rousse said.

“And now we’re finding that there isn’t anybody at the other end of the line that says they can help us, because they’re overwhelmed themselves. It’s tearing everybody up.”

🚨👉 Vermont reports record-high 940 new Covid cases, plus 3 more deaths

👍 Free at-home rapid Covid tests available at 8 locations Tuesday and Wednesday

😟👉 Delayed surgeries during Covid-19 surge leave patients in limbo, sometimes with severe pain
“When you have a doctor in front of you saying, ‘Yeah, you have cancer,’ the big C-word, whether it’s small, big or different, you get a little bit wigged out,” Striebe said. “Then you kind of just keep going along. But I just — I want it done.”
Striebe is just one of hundreds of Vermonters whose surgery has been delayed in recent weeks as hospitals struggle to manage high numbers of patients — both sick with Covid-19 and not. ... ... Last week, Dartmouth-Hitchcock, which serves many Vermonters in the southern part of the state, posted on Facebook: “Due to the high number of COVID-19 patients in our hospital, we are experiencing a shortage in the staffing and beds needed to provide you with the most appropriate care. For these reasons, your surgery or procedure may be delayed 🥵. Thank you for your patience 🤦‍♂️ during these challenging times.” Dartmouth-Hitchcock did not respond to emails with questions about delayed 😓 surgeries. On Nov. 30, the University of Vermont Medical Center announced it was postponing elective ::) procedures through the end of the year to preserve the capacity amid surging Covid-19 cases. That decision delayed care for an estimated 200 to 250 😬 patients , said hospital spokesperson Annie Mackin.
