Fighting Back! Setup Your Own Dept Covid Symptoms Database

Editor’s Note:

These days when someone sneezes or coughs- EVERYBODY turns and looks.  Herd mentality for sure.

The main symptoms of COVID-19

Include a cough, shortness of breath and a fever. Additionally, you might have digestive problems ― like nausea or diarrhea ― a headache and a sore throat. At the onset of the illness, you may experience a loss of smell or taste.  I have had all of these in the last 2 weeks- and most likely it is just a cold or whatever.

I’m out of my clinical rotation right now because I spiked a temp a few days ago.  Everybody does that.  Then I thought about what my colleague Jess mentioned in regards to starting a log for monitoring Staff temps etc.  So I took it to the next level and punched out a quick Google Form to make it easier and allow for real-time data sharing.  It may or may not represent a useful tool for your perfusion group– but I figured I would at least offer up the concept to all of my colleagues.

These are just dummy samples- and obviously if you decide to make a google form for your group- you can modify it very easily
