How do you prepare a hospital ICU — or an entire hospital — for #COVID19? Well, here’s one approach: Prepare for Ebola, years ago, maintain supplies and staff training, think through every detail, confer with colleagues around the country and around the world, and make mid-course adjustments as needed. (Is that all?) Listen in on my conversation with Michael Agus MD, Medical Critical Care Division Chief and Biocontainment Unit Co-Director at Boston Children’s Hospital (@BostonChildrens).
