We are not prepared in my hospital. There is a shortage of PPE. Only front line staff are being allowed N95s and then these are issued only after a positive test. The patients are not on isolation until then. I was informed by the ID nurse that providers,e.g.NPS,PAS,MDs,are not considered front line staff unless they are with the medicine service. That is ridiculous. We do have a "lockdown" in place,where non medical staff are stopping people at the doors asking them if they have been sick in last 2 weeks. Supposedly they are asking about travel but I have listened and they are not. Some of the local hospitals are checking temps @the door,we are not. I see patients in clinic and in hospital. I asked the clinic nursing staff last week about preparedness and frankly,they were clueless.One of the docs I work with keeps insisting that its just like the regular flu.I give up.
