How will my patients be looked after if they have COVID and require an inpatient admission?

All patients with confirmed COVID will be admitted under the 102 COVID inpatient unit and looked after by the COVID general medicine team on a COVID ward. We have had some discussions with mental health. There's a very limited exception to where asymptomatic or very mildly symptomatic COVID patients with significant mental health requirements will be kept under mental health but otherwise patients will be admitted under 102.

We have a model of joint inter-specialty care and we'll have daily discussions with the patient's home subspecialty medical team or surgical team to discuss how their management of their specific medical or surgical issues and their COVID management should jointly proceed.

There will be joint infectious diseases and 102 discussion regarding specific disease therapeutics for their COVID management and joint intensive care and 102 discussions regarding escalation of respiratory supports if required for the management of patients with COVID.
