KXAN: Austin family says toddler was turned away from hospital due to lack of space in pediatric ICU

KXAN: Austin family says toddler was turned away from hospital due to lack of space in pediatric ICU. “Kevin Karaffa, whose 22-month-old daughter was recently diagnosed with a viral respiratory infection, claims he was turned away from an Austin-area hospital because there was no space. Luckily, he says his family received one of the last beds in the Dell Children’s Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. Three hours later, Karaffa says a 10-month-old took the final PICU bed next door. He says a Dell Children’s nurse informed them that there were no more available PICU beds in the area.”
