St. Charles reports fewer hospitalizations

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- There are 44 new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 3,490, the Oregon Health Authority reported Tuesday.

Six COVID-19 deaths in the region were reported by OHA on Tuesday -- four from Crook County, one from Deschutes County and one from Jefferson County. That brings the total pandemic death tolls to 37 in Crook County, 99 in Deschutes County and 46 in Jefferson County.

OHA also reported 2,040 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, bringing the state total to 303,532.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 1,082, which is seven more than Monday. There are 288 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is 14 more than Monday.

There are 48 available adult ICU beds out of 656 total (7% availability) and 337 available adult non-ICU beds out of 4,282 (8% availability).

Available Beds

St. Charles Bend reported 87 COVID-19 patients as of early Tuesday, 15 of whom were in the ICU, with 14 of ventilators. That is 11 fewer patients than the record 98 reported on Monday. One of Tuesday's 15 ICU patients were fully vaccinated, while 10 of the 87 total patients were fully vaccinated.

The total number of patients in hospital beds may fluctuate between report times. The numbers do not reflect admissions per day, nor the length of hospital stay. Staffing limitations are not captured in this data and may further limit bed capacity.

Note: Please do not visit an emergency department for COVID-19 testing, unless you require emergency care for your symptoms.

Emergency departments in Oregon are under significant strain responding to the current surge in COVID-19. You can find a test here.  

If you have a medical condition that doesn’t require emergency care, contact your provider. An urgent care center may also help you get the care you need and will save emergency departments from added strain.

      1. So are you saying this never happened? Just because the liberal media does everything in its power to protect the dementia patient in the white house doesn’t mean these things don’t take place. The constant gaffs, misquotes and flat out unintelligible babbling are NEVER covered by the media.
        And here’s the thing… you know it. You just can’t admit it.

        1. Stick to the issues and skip the personal attacks or see many of your comments deleted. Sorry, but this is NOT aimed at one but all sides. This site’s comments have been called a ‘toxic waste dump’ and we have to hold people to the Terms of Service they agreed to.

          1. I love how you defend Biden by pointing out other stupid things people have done. Classic teenage argument strategy. Both instances were incredibly dumb. Question is, are you able to admit that….

  1. And a little more. Risch again cited Monday’s incident in which Biden was cut off mid-sentence.

    “Somebody in the White House has authority to press the button and stop the president, cut off the president’s speaking ability and sound. Who is that person?” the senator asked.

    “There is no such person,” Blinken answered, adding that Biden “speaks very clearly and very deliberately for himself. No one else does.” Then why do they always cut him off? Hmmm quite the mystery don’t ya think?

      1. Even though the transmission rates are the same? That argument has gone out the window my friend. Maybe try to find another way to divide people based on actual science.

        1. Looks to me like the unvaccinated are overwhelmingly in the majority, AGAIN.

          “87 COVID-19 patients, 15 of whom are in the ICU, with 14 on ventilators.
          In the ICU, one of the 15 patients is fully vaccinated. Two patients in the ICU are under the age of 60 and neither are fully vaccinated.
          78 of the 87 inpatients are not fully vaccinated
          23 are under 60 years old
          55 are 60 or older
          9 inpatients are fully vaccinated
          All are 60 or older”
          St. Charles 9/14

          1. Not disputing any of those facts. All that is true, along with the point of the comment that the vax are spreading it as much as the unvax as the transmission rates are equal. Are you able to acknowledge all the data, or just the pieces that help mirror your beliefs? I will add a fact to yours. Median Covid age of death: 82. US life expectancy = 77.3. Hmmmm.

        2. They aren’t though, but keep the false narrative alive! and do you even look at the data? WHO IS IN THE HOSPITAL? I’ll listen to my doctor and nurse friends you can listen to your pals on the internet! But go ahead and send a link to the scientific study you talk about! but you won’t!

    1. Say what you will. The evidence is right in front of you. And regardless of what you see you always want to cross your eyes to skew the data to match your dogma. You can teach a man to fish but if he doesn’t like fishing… every day st Charles posts the data regarding vaccinated versus unvaccinated. Want to keep arguing about numbers or how the dems and liberals are skewing the data. Knock yourself out

    2. Barney doesn’t like for us to reference Darwin. But Darwin does elaborate on survival of the fittest. Sometimes that includes using your brain. There is certainly a lot of rhetoric on most of these strings spreading misinformation from very questionable resources. Faux news, news max etc. nothing credible. Period. You’re looking for the needle in the haystack and you can’t even find the haystack

  2. Reports are coming out in the last few hours that hospitals are overcounting COVID cases at around 50%, along with the fact they are reimbursed at a higher rate if a patient has COVID when hospitalized. This is being reported from multiple sources!

    Meanwhile, Democratic leadership in Oregon continues to prevent Populations of color from revising Equity plans! Read the data! Rates of vax dropped again this past week. Keep letting us Die Brown!

      1. absolutely! Lets start with this. And I know its left of center but I figure that helps. Lots of Citations. https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2021/09/covid-hospitalization-numbers-can-be-misleading/620062/

        Other Wire services are starting to pick the story on these upcoming studies as up as well.

        Also, USA Today has fact checking info regarding the Covid payments I referred too, and if you have the bandwidth its in the OHA data actually.

        1. Thanks. With 7 reporters on today, and a night meeting just finished tracking, cannot promise to go off and read a lot of stuff. I have to focus on the top priority. But the context and ‘limitations’ of the study are in that Atlantic piece, so context is crucial.

          1. Agreed, and I know you have lots going on. However, the limitations are based on the fact the studies are currently under peer review. Those scientists are some serious people and they wouldn’t of put out the peliminary data unless the feedback they are hearing is solid.

            1. Did you read it all? It applies to earlier in the pandemic. And there are reasons why studies are peer reviewed before accepted.

              “Lastly, most of the data—even from the patients admitted in 2021—derive from the phase of the pandemic before Delta became widespread, and it’s possible that the ratios have changed in recent months.”

        2. Did you read the article? It did not say they were overcounting. The article was about “classification” of COVID cases. Did you read the last two paragraphs?

  3. Yawn. Risch is a Trump coup supporter. Though….if only someone could have cut Trump’s mic in Helsinki or after Charlottesville, or that time he suggested cleaning the inside of the body with bleach or lights.

        1. Oh, okay… a list of the top 10 diseases eradicated by vaccines is a ‘personal attack’ and violates your ToS for bullying. Got it!

          Congrats on running Central Oregon’s premiere Covid disinformation / anti-vax site.

              1. I have been writing news and watching city council all night, my higher priorities. I don’t keep track of what’s deleted/why. To avoid these types of arguments
                No regular is getting all their comments thru, I think. I can think of no reason to delete a post if it’s what you said it was.

                1. Right. I’m lying, because I do that… never. Not on purpose anyway. You say “we need to have communication, and we need to have people push back against the trolls”, but then my attempts disappear and you blame me for doing something wrong? Pfft… that’s bs.

                2. I never accused you of lying. I went back 3 pages of deleted comments and couldn’t find the one you speak of. Would you rather repost or just pick on the tired moderator?

      1. That’s the funny thing Keyser. I am not anti-vax whatsoever. I am anti this vax for certain populations and age groups that have little to no risk. Let’s be smart with are health care and understand it is a personal decision.

      2. Because she linked a site out of India that’s owned by a media group that’s bankrupt. Anything to further the antivaxx agenda. And it’s nothing new, a lot of us get flu shots every year, so the idea of getting a covid shot every year is suppose to be unusual?

        1. Oh Martha. There are lots of reasons to get the flu shot and not the Covid vax as it sits now. Just one being the flu shot does not introduce new genetic material into ones boost like the Mrna shot does.

          1. Oh geez……“However, mRNA isn’t the same as DNA, and it can’t combine with our DNA to change our genetic code. It is also relatively fragile, and will only hang around inside a cell for about 72 hours, before being degraded.”
