How are you configuring your ICUs in the COVID-19 response? SCCM will soon be publishing a paper that takes a deep dive into how ICUs can be configured differently with focus on improving workflow and minimizing providers exposures to aerosolized and droplet SARS-COV-2.
We want to hear from those in field: what measures have you put in place and how well (or not so well) have they worked?
Did you move infusion pumps out of the room, and – if so – what precautions were needed? Did you come up with any creative DIYs such as using baby monitors to better hear alarms? What adjustments did you make to rounds or to your family communication protocols?
We hope our ICU configuration paper will be a “living document” and that we can curate ideas to help others apply lessons today or prepare for the future.
