COVID-19 Testing for Surgical Patients

Based on the current COVID-19 tests available to the network, Kettering Health Network will continue the current testing protocol of testing patients under investigation (PUI). In addition, medical ICU admissions and women in active labor will be added. Proper PPE precautions will continue as previously outlined for all patients including surgical patients. We will be reevaluating testing capabilities for surgical patients weekly and will send updates as tests become available.
