Hospitals and Their Protocols to Protect Their Patients Amidst the Coronavirus Pandemic
Have you been admitted to, visited or had a doctors appointment at a hospital since the pandemic began? How did it make you feel to enter a hospital amidst the Coronavirus pandemic? Do you believe your hospital handled the situation properly in order to protect its patients?
I’ve been to several doctors offices in the last several months and I’ve come to realize that some doctors offices/ hospitals have similar yet different ways of prioritizing the safety of the patients. Some offices with larger waiting rooms are more strategic about their seating and make sure to distance their patients, while others with smaller waiting areas get crowded fast with little room to spare to social distance. Elevators are another big issue. Some hospitals may mark places for people to stand and only allow a certain number of people on one elevator but these guidelines can be easily disregarded. We all know that hospitals and it’s employees are doing their best to protect everyone and that their jobs are overwhelming at the present time but can their protocols be improved?
