Some hospital patients are leaving Humboldt County because St. Joseph Hospital in Eureka can’t treat them.

 

At a press conference last week, Humboldt County Health Officer Ian Hoffman explained, “The capacity is still there to take care of people in our county, the problem is those beds need staff. Many have retired due to the stress of this pandemic, so the pool of nurses are way down locally and nationally.”
