Home COVID-19 care easing pressure on Minnesota hospitals
December 2, 2020
At its worst, COVID-19 forced Kathleen Stewart awake at 2 a.m., gasping for air, praying to God.
" 'I need help. I can't breathe!' " she prayed. "I asked him to calm my body down, and it did calm down."
The episode in mid-November might have sent Stewart, 60, back to the emergency room, but instead she talked with a doctor assigned to her through Hennepin Healthcare to monitor manageable cases of COVID-19 at home.
