I think that would create quite a stir...

On the inpatient side, our therapists are just wearing masks, and they’re spending an hour in very close contact with each patient. RNs also masking. No gowns. Gloves just if indicated normally. Patients also masked, but tolerance/willingness varies (it’s hard to get a TBI to wear a mask)

Delicate flowers should prophylactically intubate themselves to avoid getting bad air.
Or go SCUBA rebreather and a dry suit.

always the helpful replies....

also, i dont farm out my EMGs because I actually want them done well.
