COVID-19 Nurse Triage Resources
The COVID-19 Nurse Triage Center, set-up in mid-March to assist with testing results and answering patient questions, closes Friday, July 31.
Going forward, ambulatory clinics, emergency departments and provider offices will resume the role of delivering COVID-19 test results and providing patient education information. Patients with positive test results should be called. If the patient has a negative result, offices should follow their standard work.
The triage team ensured patients received their test results, whether positive or negative, and COVID-19 education. Because clinical information changed so quickly, the team closely aligned with infection control experts to deliver up-to-date information. Additionally, the team developed tools in conjunction with the Epic team on job aids.
