COVID-19 Capability Scorecard

As the number of COVID-19 cases nationwide continues to grow, a number of hospitals will need to convert acute care beds into intensive care beds, and discharge stable patients to post-acute care settings such as nursing homes.  In addition, nursing homes unable to care for COVID patients requiring intensive support services - or unable to isolate their COVID-positive residents - will require safe and high-quality options. We recommend designating specific nursing homes (also known as "skilled nursing facilities") to serve as "COVID-19 Skilled Care Centers" (CSSCs). Officials should identify these nursing facilities immediately, so the facilities can decline new uninfected patients and isolate/transfer uninfected longer-term residents.
