Madison nurses start company to provide online COVID-19 screening | Local News | madison.com

By providing screening online, the nurses are reducing the risk of COVID-19 transmission and helping to preserve medical masks and other protective equipment that would be needed to conduct the service in person. “We can get our nursing resources where they need to go without burning through the supply that we need more in our acute care setting,” Loughlin said.

As guests were screened at the Salvation Army shelter one afternoon last week, most seemed to welcome the online exchange with Loughlin, some waving to her before and after her questions and tips. With many staying there several nights in a row, it has become a daily ritual.
