Universal Preoperative COVID-19 Screening Improves Safety by Identifying Otherwise Asymptomatic Pediatric Surgical Patients



Universally screening pediatric patients for COVID-19 before they undergo surgical procedures has allowed hospitals to improve safety by identifying all patients who test positive for the virus, half of whom have no symptoms, according to new research led by Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). The study, which analyzed universal screening procedures at CHOP and two other major children’s hospitals, found that screening patients for COVID-19 allowed hospitals to ensure patients and physicians were not exposed to the virus.
