Caring for COVID Patients on Non-COVID Dedicated Units
The information below is intended to educate caregivers on proper care
of COVID patients on regular patient-care floors.
Please note that Covenant Children's decided to move care of COVID
patients back to patient floors starting 2/5 due to our small COVID census
and the staffing challenges of continuing to staff a barely, and sometimes
unused, unit. Since these patients can be safely cared for on regular
units, by following proper PPE and safety practices, it made sense to
move towards normalizing COVID as a disease requiring isolation as it's
now a part of life that will have to be treated the same as other organisms
requring isolation for the forseeable future.
