Re: Kristian D. Stensland, Todd M. Morgan, Alireza Moinzadeh, et al. Considerations in the Triage of Urologic Surgeries During the COVID-19 Pandemic. Eur Urol. In press. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.eururo.2020.03.027 (European Urology)
The COVID-19 pandemic has overwhelmed many health care systems worldwide. As described by Stensland et al , urology services have been reduced significantly, with manpower and resources redeployed and reallocated to frontline departments, focusing attention to urgent-only cases during the COVID-19 pandemic . In this letter, we add to the considerations provided by Stensland et al by highlighting important patient safety strategies and safeguards used at a tertiary urological centre amid the climate of resource scarcity during this pandemic.
