Coronavirus – Discussions with an Emergency Department doctor

Coronavirus – Discussions with an Emergency Department doctor

February 1, 2021

GP Dr Camilla Janssen discusses with Emergency Department Consultant Helen Keeton about how secondary care is dealing with COVID in terms of numbers through the door, flow through the hospital, clinical assessment and management of these patients. Overview of how they assess a patient’s oxygen requirement. An understanding of the criteria secondary care use to determine severity and likely deterioration. They also cover the information used to inform a patients' discharge and an understanding when secondary care would like us to refer patients back into their service for further assessment. This will help us give a consistent joined up message across primary and secondary care, which can only be done if we have a good understanding of what our secondary care colleagues are doing. We continue to learn from each other in these evolving and uncertain times.
