New Jersey restarts elective procedures

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy allowed elective procedures to resume in the state May 26, JDSupra reports.

1. The state outlined guidance for ASCs and hospitals to resume procedures. Facilities must take steps to protect patients and healthcare workers from getting exposed to COVID-19 by following state and CDC guidelines.

2. Facilities can only resume procedures if they have a downward trajectory of COVID-19 cases, and ASCs must train their staff on the proper use of personal protective equipment and infection prevention practices.

3. Facilities also need to establish a way to prioritize and schedule cases. All cases will be reviewed by a site-based governance group to ensure consistency in rescheduling.

4. Facilities must also ensure they have enough PPE to protect workers and patients.
