How is your medical office planning for the pandemic flu? What are your policies and procedures?

Once an official pandemic is declared we will be setting up tents outside the hospital and every employee will be screened before coming inside. There's a whole system in place to see who's been screened and who has not before they can enter the building. This will be for every employee, doc, contractor, and vendor. Visitation will be suspended during that time.

We have an electronic system that will report each employee and whether they have symptoms to the corporate incident command.

If an employee is symptomatic they will be sent home with tamiflu and instruction sheet about how to take care of themselves, what to look for in an emergency, and when they can come back.
