Well it's starting now at my hospital. They are funneling all staff and visitors through the main entrance and questioning us if we have been out of the country, have any s/s of respiratory illness, fever, etc.
It's a state regulation that this is happening and this is level 1. No one is allowed to come in through alternate entrances into the hospital.
Level 2 is temperatures on EVERYONE who enters the building.
I dont even know what level 3 is.
To be honest, most of us in healthcare are laughing at this and the stupidity of the common people buying up all this hand sanitizer, Clorox wipes, etc etc.
It's kind of concerning that people are just now taking hand hygiene and respiratory precautions now, almost like they lived like slobs their whole lives and didnt use hygiene previously.
3M is laughing all the way to the bank, along with the people who make Purell and disinfectant.
It's a joke.
