Could I please get the following information for each public hospital in your DHB, broken down by hospital. If a hospital in your DHB has none, please list zero.
1. The current number of fully-staffed ICU beds for mechanically ventilated patients or multiple organ support for adults.
2. The current number of fully-staffed ICU beds for mechanically ventilated patients or multiple organ support for children.
3. The typical occupancy rate of these beds during alert level 1 or zero
Please exclude high acuity beds, for coronary care or high dependency care beds with oversight. I am interested in the definition given here for intensive care beds under the direct oversight of ICU teams: https://www.anzics.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Responding-to-COVID-in-Aotearoa-New-Zealand-October-2021.pdf
4. If you have plans to increase the number of beds which match the definition above, please include how many more beds you plan to have and when you plan to have them by.
