Raven DeMonia was stunned to learn her father had to be airlifted to Mississippi, she said. Eventually, the staff found an ICU bed at Rush Foundation Hospital in Meridian, Mississippi, the daughter told the Post. “It was like, ‘What do you mean?’” she told the Post.

DeMonia went to Cullman Regional Medical Center on August 23 because he was having heart problems, Raven DeMonia told the Post. “Due to COVID 19, CRMC emergency staff contacted 43 hospitals in 3 states in search of a Cardiac ICU bed and finally located one in Meridian, MS. He would not want any other family to go through what his did.”

She said her mother got a call from ​hospital staff about 12 hours after he was admitted, saying the staff had called 43 hospitals and were unable to find a “specialized cardiac ICU bed.” “In honor of Ray, please get vaccinated if you have not, in an effort to free up resources for non COVID related emergencies,” the obituary read.

Situations like the one faced by the DeMonia family are an “ongoing problem” during the Covid-19 surge, she told the Post. CNN has tried to contact members of Ray DeMonia’s family and has reached out to the Cullman Regional Medical Center for comment. “When patients are transported to other facilities to receive care that they need, that’s becoming increasingly more difficult because all hospitals are experiencing an increased lack of bed space,” Malone said.

“The level of care he required was not available at Cullman Regional,” Jennifer Malone told the Post. Citing privacy reasons, a spokesperson for Cullman Regional Medical Center would not detail Ray DeMonia’s case when asked by the Post but did confirm DeMonia was “a patient in our care and was transferred to a different facility.”
