UC hospital system to gradually restart elective procedures canceled due to COVID-19

The University of California's (UC's) hospital system has started to gradually resume elective procedures that have been canceled due to COVID-19.
The five-hospital system is the latest to explore how to safely restart procedures that are vital to hospitals’ bottom line. Each UC hospital will have to abide by 10 principles that range from preparation for new outbreaks to expanding testing and screening of patients, the system said in a letter (PDF).
“After extensive consultation with clinical leaders, we determined that further delays of essential health care services may result in more harm to patients than a careful resumption process,” said Carrie Byington, M.D., executive vice president of UC Health and an infectious disease expert, in a statement.
