Protecting Mothers and Babies: COVID-19 and the Obstetric Patient
About This Webinar
As COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus, continues to spread rapidly across the United States, the dangers presented to one of the most vulnerable populations—mothers and newborns—must be swiftly addressed.
Identifying the key trends of the effects of COVID-19 on the obstetric and newborn patient, as well as understanding the current guidelines for the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) for healthcare providers working with this patient population, is crucial to safeguarding them.
Watch Dr. William Cusick, Chair of Obstetrics and Gynecology at St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport, CT, and Heather Tuttle, BSN, RN, CEN, TCRN, as they discuss the most up-to-date trends of the COVID-19 crisis and its effects on our pregnant mothers and newborns. They address the specific guidelines, as defined by the leading agencies in the country, for the guidance to healthcare teams on the use of PPE in this setting as they care for these patients during this evolving situation.
