A medical worker tests a person for COVID-19 last month in Mobile, Ala. A surge of coronavirus cases in the state has stretched hospital ICUs to capacity, making it difficult for patients with other conditions to find ICU beds.

Ray DeMonia didn’t die from COVID-19, but after the 73-year-old experienced a cardiac emergency, he was turned away from dozens of packed ICUs, his family says.
