Post-Operative Care

  1. Office visits: Limit the number of office visits by utilizing virtual consults for post-operative checks, when possible.
  2. Patient companions: Limit post-operative visits to patients and, if necessary, a single caretaker.
  3. Temperature monitoring: Instruct all patients to monitor their temperature twice daily and keep a log of symptoms. Any COVID-19 symptoms should be reported. (STEP 5.1.e)
  4. COVID-19 positive: Immediately refer all patients or staff with a positive COVID-19 test to an infectious disease specialist. The entire staff should be evaluated appropriately thereafter.
