  • Description:
    All U.S. healthcare facilities need to be prepared for new and emerging infectious disease threats such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV). All hospitals should be equipped and ready to care for a limited number of infected patients as part of routine operations and also to potentially care for a larger number of patients in the context of escalating transmission. Facilities should outline plans for administrative, environmental, and communication measures and define the individual work practices that will be required to detect the introduction of MERS-CoV or other emerging infectious diseases, prevent spread, and manage the impact on patients, the facility, and staff.

    he following checklist highlights some key areas for healthcare facilities to review in preparation for MERS-CoV. The checklist format is not intended to set forth mandatory requirements or establish national standards.
