Coronavirus (COVID-19) Risk Resources

Coronavirus (COVID-19) — a pneumonia of unknown cause — is a quickly evolving public health crisis in the United States and abroad. Both the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services have declared the outbreak a public health emergency. Additionally, the rapid spread of coronavirus led the WHO to classify the outbreak as pandemic in mid-March 2020.

As new information emerges, MedPro encourages all healthcare providers to stay current about the epidemiology, clinical features, diagnosis, and management of coronavirus. Providers also are urged to remain vigilant regarding new developments and established best practices for infection prevention and control, particularly in relation to patient assessment and triage, infectious disease precautions, hand hygiene, the use of personal protective equipment, and environmental cleaning and disinfection.

A number of resources from authoritative organizations provide detailed information for healthcare organizations and professionals:

Ambulatory healthcare settings — such as surgery centers, medical offices, and dental practices — face challenges in determining how to best serve patients and maintain safety. Although many ambulatory facilities are postponing appointments and procedures or offering telehealth consultations, they are still providing onsite care for patients who have emergencies. To help protect the health and well-being of patients and healthcare providers/staff, MedPro has developed a form titled Patient Advisory and Acknowledgment Regarding Receiving Treatment During the COVID-19 Pandemic.
