Zone arrangements for COVID-19 positive and suspected cases.

Hi Curofians! I'm Dr. Nasir, a Family Medicine practitioner working in Singapore. This post is regarding the zone arrangements for the patients during and after the circuit breaker in running the OPD. In patient clinic, you should have 3 zones. 1. Red zone - For Suspected cases with travel or contact history with fever, should be straight asked to go to the hospital for a swab. 2. Orange zone - URTI symptoms without fever. 3. Green zone - No fever, no URTI symptoms. -In all these 3 zones patients shouldn't mix up with each other. - Full PPE in the orange and red zone is recommended. - Partial PPE in the green zone is recommended. - You should have additional staff in PPE to segregate patients in 3 zones, another staff to make sure these 3 zones patients should not mix up with different waiting areas. - The doctor going to see the patient will know in advance what type of patient he or she going to see. I hope it helps.

Absolutely good suggestion of sagregation But difficult and nonpratical for a GP working in a small place and minimum staff or no staff in india it is not 100% practical.

Good practical suggestion. Will be difficult to start but we need to implement this soon. Becoz we may expect rush and gush of patients following lock down.

Good saggregation depending different category of signs and symptoms and possibilities of ultimate prognosis

This protocol is already practing in Govt.Hospital But difficult for OPD practiciner who have single room
