  • DAILY PATIENT STATS
  • DAILY TEAM MEMBER TESTING STATS

DAILY PATIENT STATS

Today’s census for COVID-19 inpatients and those patients under investigation (PUI) are noted below: 

Discharges: 567 total COVID-19 discharges to date, 7 in the last 24 hours. These numbers include patients discharged to skilled nursing facilities but excludes deaths and discharges to hospice. 

DAILY TEAM MEMBER TESTING STATS*

* Data from 3/10 through 6/2. 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.

EMPLOYEE SELF-SCREENING TOOL FOR ENTRANCE POINTS

A new 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.

Be sure to answer this question with a yes if you are coming to Michigan Medicine do any sort of work at a health system building or facility.

“Are you a Michigan Medicine or School of Dentistry Employee or student who will be involved in clinical care activities or supporting clinical care activities today?”

Should employees not have a phone readily available, they will be screened verbally by Michigan Medicine personnel.

NO SCHEDULED GATHERINGS ALLOWED IN COURTYARD

In the wake of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer lifting the state’s stay-at-home order, please be advised that the organization is not allowing scheduled gatherings in the hospital courtyard. The hope is to keep the courtyard as open and available to as many people as possible, while still ensuring social distancing designed to keep people safe. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

UPCOMING TOWN HALL TO ADDRESS CURRENT CLIMATE AT MICHIGAN MEDICINE

In light of the pain, anger and sadness that many in the Michigan Medicine community are feeling due to the racial discrimination and social unrest in our country, a Virtual Town Hall has been scheduled to discuss the current climate.  The discussion will take place at 2 p.m. on Friday, June 5.
