CONSTANT Recommends: CDC's COVID-19 Hospital Assessment Tool

As we battle rising global cases of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), there have been an overwhelming amount of resources being distributed. At this time, the CONSTANT Team would like share resources or tools that we know to be useful, accurate, and operational for our partners.  

For our colleagues in the healthcare sector, we recommend taking a look at the Center of Disease Control’s (CDC) recent Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Hospital Preparedness Assessment Tool. This five-page assessment clearly identifies actionable steps for infection prevention, identification of patients, isolation, patient movement, environmental cleaning and sanitation, and visitor access.  

We recommend this for healthcare facilities to start with when planning for COVID-19, or for healthcare coalitions to discuss at an upcoming coalition meeting. To review the checklist, please see the image below.  

Additionally, Constant is extending our technical assistance and support services for COVID-19 response and preparedness. We are here to help and can offer support, no matter how big or small the scope. For more information about our services, please visit the following link

As we navigate this ongoing outbreak, please follow CONSTANT’s COVID-19 thread for more updates and how your organization can stay prepared.
