COVID-19 has been reported to spread through interpersonal contact, respiratory droplets and infected surfaces. As such, hospitals and other medical practices have to look for ways to make sure that their patients and staff are protected.
It’s vital that hospital systems exploit any solutions that reduce physical contact between health workers and patients, or patients among themselves. This is one of the directives given by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which has also offered several recommendations on how to achieve this.
Here are some recommendations on how you can improve hospital safety by reduced contact patient check-in options.
You can reduce the amount of person-to-person contact between patients and workers during appointments using electronic check-in solutions. Below are some ways technology can help:
These and more details allow your staff to take precautionary measures if they believe the patient could be contagious. Staff can use protective equipment and ensure that the patient does not come into contact with others.
