Due to the implementation of “NO WATCHERS POLICY”, how would the patient’s significant others/ loved ones know their patient’s status?
The patient's significant others/loved ones should provide an active contact number for our medical social workers, nurses and attending physicians to be able to communicate regarding the patient's status and needs.
Knowing that walk-thru/drive-thru swab testing appointment is based on the patient’s preferred date and time, is there a possibility that they can modified their schedule? Can they let anyone use their appointment instead?
Swab Testing appointment availability is based on a set number of clients that can be accommodated within a day.
Thus, we cannot modify the schedule once it has been registered.
In the same manner, this slot, if not availed, cannot be transferred to another client.
