Healthcare facilities housing patients with COVID-19 should adhere to standard guidelines. Medical-surgical nurses are in an optimal position to advocate for effective treatment modalities and preventive measures for this disease. Nurses have a vital role in pharmacovigilance and drug safety, especially in administering new drugs for COVID-19
Very informative. We are following these guidelines in our hospital. We are having trouble getting patients back to nursing homes because they want a negative covid test and as from this article and research shows they can be positive up to 3 months.
Good Information, we are following the standardguidlines
Good reminder of what we need to do to stand together and encourage immunizations.
Great article. Our facility is following these standards. Nursing homes are requiring negative test in our area. Article reports can be 3 months test positive.
We've come so far since the beginning... Great review and can't emphasize enough the RN role in public health prevention and maintenance.
