  1. @JonnyCat ... glad to see you are coming around on some of this and @Matt thank you for the direct information. Not from a finance standpoint, but from a labor and resource standpoint ... my wife is working on a COVID-19 floor. COVID-19 patients are very labor and resource intensive. Her floor is normally labor and resource intensive due to their specialty plus they are an ICU overflow. Their capacity has been reduced to a fraction of what they would normally have yet they are burning through more far resources (PPE, billable care items, labor, etc.) than they normally do. From a

  4. How so? It would be one thing if you had high margin patients, but if you don't, why wouldn't you try to increase those margins on the patients you do have? Just because in your estimation, covid 19 patients are low margin, if they're all you have, of course any business would be trying increase the margins on the business they do have. If you see enough covid 19 patients, then you could increase your revenue on volume even though the margins are low. Many business' operate on that principle and do very well. Honestly, it is entirely possible hospitals somewhere in the US are increas

  5. It looks like each PU has a breath mask, as do most of the BUs. I just ordered in my breath mask: Another one that appealed was this: Lightweight, and has a UV SPF rating of 40+, so it gives me the added benefit of keeping my neck and cheeks from getting sunburned. I think a gaiter-style one will be easier to manage with an umpire mask than just a mouth covering. Won't get displaced by taking the umpire mask on and off. The balls won't have the viruses on 'em (go ahead somebody; prove it!), and I won't be touchin' anybody, or my face until I wash my hands at the conclusion of th

  7. I think I've already gone through this in great detail, and I don't care to do so again. Turns out it's all moot in my case, because our governor has postponed opening by another two weeks. ...and there's not much doubt about this.

  8. If only it were as simple as" risk go for it." By "going for it," you risk infection, which you can then spread, perhaps while asymptomatic, to others, who, in turn.... And the virus spreads. Your analogies to blood clots and falling down stairs (and risks generally) are inapposite: neither is contagious.

  11. I’m pretty sure that’s a Mizuno Belgard. I took too quick of a look at it, but the semi-rounded ear guards and pads are definitely Belgard.

  12. @Majordave , this sounds like a problem. And here I was under the impression and experience that you, sir, are a "Solutions" guy. It sounds like you're letting a problem get in the way. I'm sure you could call in a favor with MAC (Military Airlift Command, for the un-acronym savvy) and have a set of gear parachuted, can-dropped, or choppered in to your "deployment". It might not be your gear, but it would be useable gear.
