Meanwhile, cramped hospitals are being told that nearly all of their patients don’t fit the “criteria” for admission at either facility, frustrated staffers and public officials complain.

“It’s bulls–t,” one staffer at the overcrowded Metropolitan Hospital Center in East Harlem told The Post of a 25-point checklist for transferring patients to Javits.

The worker, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the hospital recently asked Javits to take 95 of their COVID-19 patients, but only one made the cut.

And yet hospital admissions continue to rise.
