Abstract

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is now an epidemic of global proportion, with major adverse impacts on older adults, persons with chronic diseases, and especially residents of long-term care facilities. This health catastrophe has challenged healthcare facilities' capacity to deliver care to not only COVID-19 patients but all patients who need hospital care. We report on a novel approach of utilizing long-term care beds at a Department of Veterans Affairs healthcare facility for managing recovering COVID-19 patients. J Am Geriatr Soc 68:2163-2166, 2020.
