The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of the Inspector General (OIG) has released a report titled “Hospitals Reported That the COVID-19 Pandemic Has Significantly Strained Health Care Delivery.” The report focuses on the continued strain that COVID-19 has placed on hospitals and their ability to deliver care to patients and provides an overview on the many challenges they are facing clinically, administratively, and financially due to the pandemic. The report also highlights problems hospitals have raised concerning COVID-19 patients who they have been unable to discharge to post-acute care facilities due to a shortage in bed capacity or because the post-acute care facility did not want to risk the further spread of COVID-19 infection.
