So if the support person refuses testing, they are considered a PUI and are asked to leave?
Peter Bernstein

Yes. But we don’t force them to leave. We treat them as a PUI if they stay In terms of the PPE that the staff wears.

Are you limiting the presence of a support person during a c/section due to availability of PPE?
maria smilios
01:01:40
What are your protocols for scheduled c/sections and COVID testing?
Dena Goffman
01:03:57
We bring scheduled cesareans and inductions for preadmission swabs...have been doing 24 hrs prior but are increasing that to within 72 hours
Dena Goffman
01:04:36
We allow one support person during cesarean
Sandra McCalla
01:05:53
We will begin to offer antibody testing to every woman at 35-36 weeks gestation and use results to guide need for PCR on admission
marilyn kacica
01:07:58
Sandra, how will that guide you?
Camille Clare
01:15:07
how have you screened for DV?
Stephanie McNally
01:15:38
Social Workers at our hospital have been working with patients
Sandra McCalla
01:17:54
If IgG positive and patient asymptomatic within 5 weeks of IgG result , no swab will be done on admission

A note for birthing hospitals: In the past two weeks the New York Blood Center (NYBC) experienced a dangerously low supply of blood as the need for blood rebounded to pre-COVID-19 levels. Though blood supply has been increased, NYBC is asking hospitals to keep NYBC informed of your projected needs for blood products, including planned restart dates for elective/deferred surgeries out as far as two weeks. This information will help enable NYBC to triage your needs and respond appropriately. The NYBC website is: www.nybc.org.

as rapid results for PCR are not widely available for every patient admitted to l&d, waiting for results leads to treating patients and their newborns as PUI's with all the necessary precautions

i think it would be helpful to know what other hospitals are doing to support the frontline staff during this period also
