Hospital visits a balancing act

People’s concerns about COVID-19 are causing an unforeseen side effect for Door County Medical Center: empty rooms. The Kenosha News reports almost 40 percent of the state’s hospital beds are empty. Door County Medical Center Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jim Heise says people are avoiding the hospital and choosing to deal with their issues on their own in order to stay away from possible exposure. He says the hospital and its clinics have taken all the necessary precautions to make sure any patients with medical needs are safe to visit.

Door County Medical Center will start allowing elective procedures beginning next week on a reduced schedule to make sure people can avoid staying in the waiting room.
