File Description: 

This document outlines more information about the Maestro Care Update for Exposure to COVID-19 status. Beginning Thursday, May 28th, a new infection status, “Exposure to COVID-19” will be visible within Maestro Care for patients who have a known exposure to a person infected with COVID-19 (e.g. newborn of a mother with COVID-19) or patients requiring admission with a recent stay in a congregate setting (such as nursing or group home). When admitting a patient with this history, you must notify Infection Prevention at your facility during business hours to update the infection status and assure isolation order for Contact and Droplet entered in Maestro Care. Some patients may have a negative SARS-CoV-2 test; however, due to their exposures (to another person or congregate living facilities), special contact and droplet precautions are indicated for a defined period while in acute care clinical settings. Please contact your facility's Infection Preventionist with questions. Uploaded 05.28.20
