So, second booster availability just changed... so I'm gonna go in the next couple weeks to cover me for my Vegas trip... and RBC now has Novavax, a non-mRNA type of vaccine that is even more efficient against infection even against Omicron...

Due to patients having COVID or staff?

I'd hope they have a waiting list of alternate patients ready to go...

Patients. ***** and complain about our back log and then go out and get covid a few days before your surgery.

Most of the surgery's where filled, however there were some that patients could make on short notice.

Wondering if we need a wholesale modification of how/where patients are treated.  There should be many different varieties of hospitals.  Having vulnerable patients in the same hospital as carriers of pandemic viruses doesn't make a lot of sense.  I've always said that maternity departments in hospitals are probably 10x too big, they should be exclusively for high risk pregnancies, an there should be "Birthing centres" for 90% of deliveries.   Same with ortho surgery, should never be in a hospital where infections are rampant.  And then make an infectious disease hospital that is specifically designed to house and isolate infectious patients, designed to prevent spread.  A cardiac hospital, and separate emergency trauma departments.   

Lumping them all together makes no sense, even from a logistics perspective.  Bigger does not mean cheaper...  sometimes economies of scale make sense, other times, getting bigger incurs more expense.

Pretty sure most people don't "Go out and get COVID" a few days before their surgery.  I'd also bet that most that are rejected for having COVID on day of don't even know they are infected... asymptomatic infection is rampant.  And with the new variants, even symptomatic infection is mistaken for allergies, hangovers, or just a cold.  I find myself testing every few days now, at the slightest symptom.

 Yes they don't go out and get covid on purpose, but there also not making there surgery a priority. If I had waited for 2 years to get a knee replacement, I would be on lock down 2 weeks before my surgery not at a 300 person wedding 10 days before my surgery.

100% agree, but to most people, COVID is over... so no risk in going to the Pony, or a wedding, or a Bomber game with zero mitigation going on (at least its outside)...

The bad part for some of these people is they fall back about 3-6 months on the waiting list.

When we told them that we have had 4 shots, they ask if the pain was the same every time. They were also surprised that there was no cost for the shots.
