Charlie BakerMassachusett's Gov. Charlie Baker (R) signed an emergency declaration on Tuesday ordering some hospitals to delay nonessential procedures due to staffing shortages.

The governor, along with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, said hospitals that do not have the capacity or staff for patients will have to delay nonessential procedures.

The guidance was also made in coordination with the Massachusetts Health & Hospital Association.

The order, effective Nov. 29, sees nonessential, nonurgent scheduled procedures as procedures that aren’t medical emergencies that were scheduled in advance.

The order was spurred by staffing shortages, which caused the loss of 500 medical/surgical and ICU hospital beds.
