ABSTRACT

Hospitalized coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) patients receiving antibiotics (n = 173) were retrospectively assigned to the early or late discontinuation groups. The length of therapy was shorter in the early discontinuation group (3 vs 7 days; P < .0001). Mortality rates (14.3% vs 20.7%; P = .316) and length of stay (7 vs 9 days; P = .063) were similar.

ABSTRACT

The novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic emerged in Wuhan, China in December 2019 and has subsequently escalated exponentially worldwide. As this virus has never been experienced previously, it poses a significant challenge to healthcare systems who are poorly equipped to handle the large number of gravely ill patients who seek medical attention. Additionally, treating providers are placing their own lives at risk due to the lack of adequate personal protective equipment. We are reporting the proactive measures that were implemented at our healthcare system in a metropolitan community in Kentucky to address COVID-19. The primary goal was to maintain a safe environment for providers, staff, and patients. Three key strategies were incorporated at our healthcare system, including.
