Prior to inpatient hospitalization, every patient undergoes a serological test for SARS-CoV-2 antibodies. Patients with positive antibodies are quickly transferred to CCs for further investigation/care. Particular attention and adequate protection are due during the transfer of SARS-CoV-2–positive/doubtful patients. Once a patient is admitted to the ward, PPE is administered to physicians/nurses during every inpatient procedure which exposes the operator to respiratory droplet/contact with patients not wearing masks: surgical procedures, mouth inspection, ENT fibroscopy (as described before), post-surgical dressing.
