Margaret Mary Health COVID-19 Update: 2.14.22
This past week our number of hospitalized COVID-19 patients remained consistent with the patient volumes we experienced the week prior. Unless there is a significant change in volume trends, our next update will be Monday, February 28.
Inpatient Care: We currently have 23 patients on our Med Surg floor, with 3 of those patients in our Special Care Unit and 1 on a ventilator. 8 of our patients are Covid+ (positive). Our overall percentage of hospitalized COVID patients who are unvaccinated continues to trend around 85%. All our current hospitalized COVID patients are unvaccinated.
Testing: The percent of patients testing positive for COVID-19 declined significantly, with 26.1% of patients (51 in total) testing positive, the lowest rate we’ve seen so far in 2022. Those who need to be tested for Covid-19 should contact their primary care provider for an outpatient test to be completed through our lab or schedule an appointment at a local testing site through coronavirus.in.gov. If you have mild symptoms or had a known exposure to someone with COVID-19, self-testing at home with an over-the-counter test is also a good option for fast results.
Vaccination: Vaccine appointments for everyone ages 5 and older can be scheduled Monday – Friday at the MMH Occupational Health and Wellness Center in Batesville at 812.932.5105. Vaccine appointments can also be made Monday – Friday at the Margaret Mary Health Center in Brookville at 765.647.5126. Walk-ins are also welcome in Brookville.
