As an EM Family we must stand together in this very difficult time, and your College is committed to helping you and our community do that.

We are receiving reports from members working at hospitals particularly hard-hit during the COVID-19 pandemic, and know that hospital preparedness for this pandemic is variable.

As emergency physicians you and our teammates are putting your lives on the line every day, and are now going well beyond the call of duty. Please use all available precautions to stay safe as you continue to care for your patients. We are profoundly thankful for each and every one of you and will offer any support we can.

To this end, we will be issuing information, resources, and perspective in updates below on this post and encourage you to check back often for the latest news.

We also encourage our members to comment and share their questions, references, and information in the comments below.

Thank you for your professionalism, heroism, and dedication as we address this dangerous pandemic. You have our admiration and respect as we look forward to better days ahead on the other side of this unprecedented crisis.

Robert E. Suter, DO, MHA, FACOEP-D
