We have begun repeat COVID testing for hospitalized patients at the acute care hospitals and at Bryn Mawr Rehab. This will help us identify any patients who were asymptomatic COVID carriers but did not test positive on admission. We can then isolate these patients and protect our other patients and our staff. A BPA has been created to save providers time in identifying when testing should be ordered.
The tip sheet explains the criteria for the BPA and steps for ordering the test. Tip sheet can also be found in the What’s New section of the Learning Home Dashboard.
