State Medical Association warns against triage in intensive care units in Saxony | MDR.DE

According to the State Medical Association, Saxony has to prepare for triage. It will soon be expected that two patients will have to compete for a bed in certain regions of the state, said Bodendieck on Monday on Deutschlandfunk.

Unvaccinated people have worse chances

If nothing changes, a selection must be made of who will be treated and who will not. “We have to triage and I will discuss that again with my colleagues in the clinics this week.”

Preventive triage, i.e. keeping beds free, is not legally possible. Those who then have a better chance of successful treatment are preferred. Unvaccinated people would have the worse chances of survival, according to Bodendieck.
