Spectrum Health implements coronavirus triage screening area

This is an extension of our emergency department
here at Butterworth Hospital. Yes. And we have the ability to set these up at Helen
DeVos and other emergency departments around the area. It will be an extension of the emergency
department in that scenario. We’re similtaniously offering the video call screening and drive-through
testing as an alternative to needing this resource. So far our supplies are adequate
for the need. We are trying to be extremely good stewards of those resources though to
ensure their proper use so that we have enough for the long haul. Once it was here we rapidly
set this tech up to support the team. We’re continuing to evaluate everyday how we can
improve our guidelines, improve our care, improve the process for patients that come
through Spectrum.
