Hospitals like Door County Medical Center are showing the importance of everyone playing a crucial role in their battle against COVID-19. Nurses without schools to work at have been manning the Door County Medical Center’s mobile testing lab since it first set up last month. Other nurses and medical professionals have been cross-trained in COVID-19 related procedures just in case employees begin contracting the virus. Even the environmental services team has played a major role in keeping hospital employees and patients safe with quick and thorough cleanings of areas where possible COVID-19 patients have been. Door County Medical Center President and CEO Brian Stephens says it takes everyone working together to have the success they have had over the last month.
Door County Medical Center has also expanded its intensive care unit, increased its training, and added additional testing to help mitigate the effects of COVID-19.
