 Hospital Readiness Checklist for COVID-19

This document provides a checklist to measure a hospital’s response capacity when overwhelmed by the massive influx of patients demanding medical care as a result of an emergency.

In such a scenario, it is necessary to consider whether the health facility is organized to ensure comprehensive management of the hospital response, functioning coordination mechanisms, integrated information management, logistical capacity to facilitate the response and the necessary resources to implement it, as well as an integrated response to patient care, while safeguarding the health and well-being of health workers.
