Letter to OPANA Members - Covid 19
Posted: Mon, May 4th 2020
Dear OPANA members, The OPANA Board of Directors would like to reach out to all of our members to take this opportunity to recognize the extreme personal and professional challenges that many of you may be facing during this COVID-19 Pandemic. The devastation that this disease has presented to us provincially, nationally and internationally is unprecedented. Please know that we are working collaboratively with our nursing leaders, anesthesia and surgical teams and we are collecting the work that has been done at different organizations for future guidance on pandemic planning; at this time OPANA recommends following local hospital guidelines which should align with provincial & national recommendations. We recognize that many of you, as peri-anesthesia nurses, may have already been redeployed to different areas or are in the process of shadowing in a clinical area to prepare for a possible pandemic surge. We understand that some of you may or may not have had previous experience in these different environments which can be very stressful. To support our OPANA members the best we can, we have provided several excellent resources that we hope you will find helpful. Most of the clinical information has been developed specifically for the Covid-19 pandemic situation. As we try to manage our day to day responsibilities, we want you to know that the OPANA Board of Director group are here to support you as we all navigate our way through these uncertain times. We would like to acknowledge your professional dedication during these extraordinarily difficult circumstances. Please stay safe. Feel free to reach out through the OPANA website for any additional information and support. We are working on posting COVID information in the days to come. With respect, OPANA BOD
