In-Patient Rehab for patients post-Stroke during COVID-19-

Hi everyone,

I work at an in-patient rehabilitation hospital in Canada. We are not admitting any patients with a known diagnosis of COVID-19, but the patients are not necessarily tested prior to being admitted to the rehab hospital. In the last couple of days we have had a couple of patients who have tested positive while in rehab as they developed symptoms after several days/ weeks. We have several protective measures in place such as: no visitor policy; and it is now mandatory for us to wear a face mask during out treatment sessions with all of our patients. Are there any other guidelines or protective measures that are being taken in other in-patient hospitals to prevent this from happening and to keep the patients and the staff from getting the virus?

Thanks

Hello Jessica,
McMaster University has prepared guidelines for rehabilitation that may be helpful for your practice. The guidelines can be accessed in the central registry of COVID-19 resources on the WFOT website at https://www.wfot.org/assets/resources/M … 8-2020.pdf
I hope this resource is of assistance to guide your practice during this unprecedented time.
