A Clear COVID-19 Message Alert order is now available for all ordering providers – allowing you to remove the red COVID-19 Storyboard banner when COVID-19 is ruled out and the patient has no COVID-19-related symptoms. This helps patients move to the appropriate unit and receive care faster – especially helpful if they’ve tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 30 days, are asymptomatic and there are no concerns for a COVID-19 workup.
When placing this order:
- Follow Infection Control guidelines for clearing the alert.
- If the banner or COVID-19 infection status is still on the chart, it could be related to testing.
- Contact your local Infection Prevention and Control department for any questions.
