Restarting elective procedures or surgeries during the COVID-19 pandemic will require additional assessments to optimize your patients’ health for the best possible outcome. In today’s crisis, doctors must follow the standard of care when known, and customize and innovate when it is not. Physicians must assess not only the patients’ medical needs for surgery but also their potential for becoming infected with the COVID-19 virus during the peri-operative period.
Review this program to assemble resources to prepare for elective surgery, formulate a consent discussion including COVID-19 risk mitigation steps, and thoroughly document discussions.
