I'm a Nurse Manager fo an inpatient state run Psychiatric Facility. As of now we have had no patients or staff test positive for the virus. We have put several steps in place for screening all staff, stopped admissions, and are working on contingency units if ever needed.

What steps are you taking at your facilities? What has worked? What did not work? We have over 250 patients on 13 separate units. Some patients have private rooms, but most have shared.

Please share any ideas or experiences (good and bad).

Keep up the good work everyone.
