Actions speak louder than words, especially during a crisis. We either build trust or we destroy it. For many surgery centers, trust in their anesthesia team has been severely damaged during COVID-19.
As we talk to surgery centers across the nation, we are continually disturbed to hear that the response from anesthesia teams was the biggest variable impacting how the center could respond – first when deciding whether to stay open or shut down, and now, as centers look to re-open. We’ve heard that anesthesia teams were either “great” or “disruptive,” with almost no middle ground.
Every moment lost in crisis management is valuable time you need to focus on advancing your center’s mission. Time spent convincing anesthesia providers to get on board, or better yet, help develop the guidelines to continue operations or to re-open is emotionally and financially damaging.
At CarePlus, we have never missed a day of coverage. Not before COVID-19, not during, and we won’t after.
We are taking information garnered while working with centers that have remained open during the crisis and we are proactively sharing that with centers that are moving toward re-opening.
