RIDOH PROVIDER UPDATE
This announcement has 1 attachment:
Hi All: I continue to sit through the PCPAC meetings. Attached is the provider report from DOH today. Lots of detail in this.
One interesting point on the call was what to do as a provider if you see a patient who you suspect is positive. The answer was that you can continue to work, but with a mask on. Patient should be reported as PUI to DOH. Now we have community transmission, so if someone was originally screeded as negative (after travel, for instance), if new symptoms, they should be retested.
3 testing centers to open tomorrow morning. (CCRI, RIC, URI). Patients will all need PCP (MD, APRN, PA) order. Orders can be faxed and patients must fit the criteria listed in this attachment
