So we are again in short supply of test kits. How long is a kit valid for ? We went through 1300 right after Memorial Day in a "community testing day" that was a farce. There was no benefit to the community. If we had not used all those kits at the end of May, would they still be usable n…

And we wasted 1300 test kits because no one with a lick of common sense could figure out the testing window for Teton County had passed. and we had already "opened", so there was absolutely NO POINT in testing after Memorial Day

Do we have any idea as to SJH stock of PPE ?

As to the ventilator situation, EIRMC specifically stated that they would only accept transfer patients from SJH IF THE PATIENT COULD NOT RECEIVE AN APPROPRIATE LEVEL OF CARE AT SJH. So, if all patients that needed ventilators were transferred, it was because EIRMC and SJH judged SJH to b…

So testing supplies could slow down or halt elective surgeries. One more reason we shouldn't have wasted all those tests at the end of May. For some reason, there seems to be an incredible lack of foresight in the running of the hospital. I have a set of hospital schematics. I think with …

So I guess we are in a 4 year CEO cycle. In the end, Lou Hochheiser replaced Pam Maples, and he had a house here. Paul Beaupre (and the other finalist) were the contenders after Lou, and they each already had housing here. Are we going to waste a lot of money trying to do a nationwide sea…

Can ANYONE explain the logic of the community testing event when you then read this article. Simply reinforces "why did we bother"? How much time and money was wasted doing nothing but providing a sop for the community. How many test kits were wasted that day ? Do we NOW have unlimited te…

I would say that the Teton County ;Hospital district is no better prepared than before the first wave. Maybe, instead of sending all those needing ventilation out of state, they could have sent one, kept one. Supposedly we had the ability to handle ventilated patients. Instead, the nurses…

Come on, it's simple "no shirt, no shoes, no mask no service".

Also, if any are tourists at hotels, hotels ARE NOT a place to self-quarantine. Since the hospital is not admitting anyone, do these people have an appropriate place, away from others, to self-quarantine?

So, another article that says the fairgrounds was a "why bother". If you want data that can be used, you need to be testing DURING the pandemic, not when you haven't had any show up as positive for two weeks. Waste of time, waste of money and if we are beginning to see the second wave, wa…
