This is the third edition in a series of write-ups on innovations that Mount Sinai Morningside hospital has implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic in New York City. We hope you find the accounts of our agile response useful and we encourage you to reach out with any questions. Contact information provided at the end.
In early March of 2020, the Mount Sinai Morningside (MSM) Incident Management Team (IMT) was activated to support the hospital’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Within a week, our census of patients who were either diagnosed with COVID-19 or under investigation for COVID-19 (PUI) doubled, then tripled, then increased exponentially. The IMT focused on strategies to maintain isolation of these patients.
