The COVID-19 Pandemic is the most significant economic and human resource crisis in modern history. Healthcare organizations of all types are suffering significant financial losses and reductions in labor resources, which is further complicated by decreases in demand for medical services and revenue. The federal and state, “stay at home orders”, the postponement of elective surgeries and routine medical visits, is also adversely affecting the health of their patients. Historically, health care has been relatively immune from recessions; however, the pandemic has made decisions for reopening risky and complicated. It is even more distressing for the millions of dedicated healthcare professionals that have to balance the benefits of employment with reducing the risk of becoming infected with the disease. Healthcare organizations that have been severely affected, such as ambulatory surgery centers, physician practices, and dentists, need to ensure that they are prepared to protect the health and safety of their patients and staff while complying with all federal regulations, state laws, and interim guidance.
