Lean Blog Audio — For Covid-19 Preparedness, Hospitals Need More Than Written Protocols


I’ve been thinking a lot about hospitals and how they’re preparing for the expected tsunami of Covid-19 patients who will need ICU beds and ventilators (when it’s expected that there won’t be enough of either).

There have also been recent preparations (and ongoing actions) to screen patients who arrive at emergency rooms and outpatient clinics.

I was at one organization last week that was in the process of installing new protocols and procedures in an outpatient clinic setting and I was able to have a tiny amount of input into that. Now, I’m home and trying to help remotely with the situation.

I hope this blog post helps more broadly.
