June 17: DAILY COVID-19 UPDATE
NEW TODAY: Here’s the latest information about Michigan Medicine’s management of the COVID-19 pandemic:
- DAILY PATIENT STATS
- TEAM MEMBER TESTING STATS
- LIMITING ENTRANCES ON MAIN MEDICAL CAMPUS
DAILY PATIENT STATS
Today’s census for COVID-19 inpatients and those patients under investigation (PUI) are noted below:
Discharges: 610 total COVID-19 discharges to date, 3 in the last 24 hours. These numbers include patients discharged to skilled nursing facilities but excludes deaths and discharges to hospice.
TEAM MEMBER TESTING STATS*
* Data from 3/10 through 6/17. The testing stats reflect just Michigan Medicine employees, not all University of Michigan employees. It also reflects only those who sought testing at or were hospitalized at Michigan Medicine or reported their testing to Occupational Health Services. Some Michigan Medicine employees may have been tested outside our system.
LIMITING ENTRANCES ON MAIN MEDICAL CAMPUS
During the peak of the COVID-19 crisis, many members of the command center team were provided card reader access to some of the entrances that did not have screeners at the door. In order to have full compliance with the screening requirements of the Executive Order, the organization is closing all unattended entrances on the main medical campus and requiring entry via an attended entrance by either using the mobile screening tool or by directly answering screening questions. This change will be effective Sunday, June 21, and will ensure facilities are as safe as possible.
An up-to-date list of entrances includes:
· Mott main entrance (open 24/7)
· Taubman/University Hospital main entrance (24/7)
· Taubman Center Level 2 near P2/P3 (6 a.m. – 7 p.m. daily)
· Rogel Cancer Center staff entrance (6 a.m. – 6 p.m., Monday-Friday)
· Rogel Cancer Center main entrance (afterhours/weekends for staff)
· Medical school/Rogel Cancer Center link/P1 skywalk (24/7)
· Med Sci Building II (24/7)
· Adult Emergency Services (patients only, 24/7)
· Children’s Emergency Services (patients only, 24/7)
· Radiation oncology (patients only, 24/7)
Additionally, please be reminded that a mobile tool has been developed to replace verbal health screenings to avoid bottlenecks at Michigan Medicine employee entrance points. The tool, which can be accessed via smartphone on the website healthscreen.umich.edu, will ask questions about symptoms, risk factors and job function.
Based on the responses, users will either see a green screen with a check mark, indicating they can proceed through the screening point and report to work, or a red screen, indicating that they should stay home and contact OHS. Employees should answer the online screening questions before leaving for work. By not closing the browser, the green screen will be available to display to security once employees are on-site.
Should employees not have a phone readily available, they will be screened verbally by Michigan Medicine personnel.
