We know the COVID-19 pandemic has made it increasingly difficult to keep your patients safe from additional sickness. To help you address this issue, MedForms has developed an entire section for your admission booklet that is full of suggestions to help keep widespread infection at bay. Our Infection Prevention and Control section includes:
- Practicing good daily health habits;
- Washing your hands;
and instructions for handling common items used in health care, including:
- Disposable items and equipment;
- Non-disposable items and equipment;
- Sharp objects;
- And body fluid spills.
Should patients or families have questions about how to navigate any of the above during admission, the Infection Prevention and Control section is a great reference point.
In light of the confusion surrounding COVID-19 diagnoses, precautions and protocols, MedForms has also created a detailed handout entitled “How to Manage COVID-19.” Information on the handout comes directly from the CDC’s coronavirus communications and is updated regularly as recommendations change. We would be happy to include the COVID-19 handout in your orientation booklet as a helpful tool for your patients as we continue to navigate this difficult time together.
