Maine hospital suspends pediatric, heart attack, trauma admissions
No mandate, no problems. Mandate, big problems.
A Maine hospital has suspended pediatric, heart attack and trauma admissions amid concern it could face staffing shortages when a Covid vaccination mandate goes into effect later this month.
Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston will assess and stabilize any patients who arrive at the emergency room and then divert them to another facility if they need to be admitted.
