The Medical ICU at ZSFG has been on the frontlines, caring for our sickest COVID-positive patients in addition to other patients with complex medical illnesses. In just one month, the ICU admitted 38 patients, ranging in age from 28 to 92. Three quarters of these patients were male, and 24 of them, or almost 2/3, were mechanically ventilated. One month later, 29 were transferred out of the ICU and 17 of them have actually gone home. Only one has passed away.
Thank you to Joy Capacillo, RN and the ICU team for creating a diagram demonstrating some of what we have to be grateful for at ZSFG and in San Francisco overall.
