As individuals, we can all do our part, and take preventative measures to help slow the spread of COVID-19. For hospitals and healthcare facilities, the importance of preparedness has become imperative. The guidelines provided by the CDC and healthcare officials have continued to warn of the dangers that this virus poses, and how rapidly it is spreading. Understanding the nature of this pandemic and how to deal with it is the first step in containing it. COVID-19 is transmitted from the release of respiratory droplets from the nose or mouth of an infected person and can be a person-to-person transmission, or through surfaces such as door handles. The rapid increase of cases has created a public health crisis and has placed a large burden on hospitals. The preparedness of hospitals will largely depend on how quickly and effectively their infection control strategy is implemented to mitigate the spread of the virus. 

Environmental Controls & Patient Isolation

With the unique challenges that this particular virus presents, hospital preparedness during this time require strategic planning. These detailed infection control plans should include environmental controls and patient isolation. If an infected person enters a hospital, that person must be isolated promptly in an airborne infection isolation room, in order to prevent exposure to other patients or healthcare workers. Having a plan and environment that allows for this is crucial.
