A number of hospitals in Miami-Dade and Broward are reaching their full ICU capacity; Homestead Hospital, which is part of the Baptist Health Network, announced they reached ICU capacity Tuesday.

This comes as the Florida Department of Health is changing its reporting guidelines for hospitals with regards to available ICU beds. The department explained in a statement that the new reporting guidelines are necessary to get a more accurate count of patients receiving intensive care treatment with COVID-19 rather than simply patients in the ICU with the virus.

Rebekah Jones, the former manager of the statewide dashboard, has concerns about the reporting change.
