I am trying to gather information re: what departments are doing re: testing for respiratory illnesses for admissions...
Are tests being ordered in the ED to determine where patients wind up on the floor...cohort RSV with RSV, boca virus with boca virus, etc, etc...or are low risk "respiratory patients" admitted without regard to etiology of illness....and cohorted based on symptoms alone?
