I work in an acute care hospital on a med surge floor that has been caring for COVID-19 patients since March. We have three hallways with 12 beds in each hall. There are no routine COVID testing of staff. We have our temperature screened when arriving for each shift, and our standard PPE when working with COVID 19 patients is N95 mask, face shield, gown and gloves. Originally we we were all COVID, but as the census got low, the converted two of the hallways back to med surge, and only one hall was COVID. Now with the increase in COVID patients we are mixing COVID and non COVID patients in the same hall. I would appreciate comments from others if this is a common practice in other hospitals and if it sounds responsible.
