The Texas Medical Board issued emergency rules earlier this month for physicians who come in contact with patients in their facilities. For hospitals, this includes keeping 15% of their capacity for COVID-19 patients. Doctor's offices are required to post a sign in their offices stating that they would be following the four rules set forth in the Board's order.
Jackson Walker Healthcare chair Virginia Mimmack breaks down the four rules, and what would happen if those rules are not followed.
1) Everyone must wear masks.
2) Patients must abide by screening procedures.
3) Offices must establish screening procedures.
4) N-95 masks and proper PPE are required whenever there is contact with a mucus membrane.
