Welcome to the UW Medicine COVID-19 Public Site. The clinical and administrative teams throughout our system (Harborview Medical Center, UW Medical Center-Montlake, UW Medical Center-Northwest, Valley Medical Center, UW Neighborhood Clinics and Airlift Northwest) and partners Seattle Cancer Care Alliance have developed policies and protocols in response to the outbreak in Western Washington. Most of these documents have been written since Monday, February 24th 2020 and are undergoing frequent revisions as the COVID-19 situation evolves. When using the documents, we caution you to be mindful of the date the document was produced and to check that against current knowledge and evolving clinical standards.
Since the outbreak began, our colleagues, locally and nationally, have been reaching out to us for assistance as they start to see cases. We hope that by sharing our work, we can assist your teams and facilities to move more quickly and to spend more time responding and less time typing.
This is a "rough" draft of what we hope will be much more to come. Our vision is to continue to add the many more protocols and flow diagrams we have ranging from the Airlift Northwest team to our exposure protocol. We hope to add a discussion board and maybe even the ability for others to upload their documents (ex. from the LTCF community).
