El Paso Children’s Hospital – Keeping Patient Rooms Clean and Safe

El Paso Children's Hospital

From the beginning of the pandemic, El Paso Children’s hospital wanted to test every patient coming in for COVID-19 to ensure the safety of other patients and providers. Providers were having trouble finding space to perform all these tests, even with drive through testing. El Paso Children’s serves patients from as far away as New Mexico and even Jaurez. Telling patients to travel to the hospital twice – once for a COVID-19 test and then again for the medical appointment – was not feasible for many of these patients.
