Pt with suspected coronavirus

11 months 3 weeks ago #9099 by Westy279
Hi there, sorry if l've put this on the wrong forum, l'm new to this network so please forgive me if l'm in the wrong place. I was after some advice. Last week a girl l know and her partner cut there holiday in India short and she was very very unwell. I am friends with her on facebook and this morning she posted saying she had never felt so poorly and suspected she had coronavirus. She has phoned 111 but not been given any clear advice but was told to stay home, with her partner, who is booked in with us on Monday for a check up. I informed my manager of this, and she said she is sure he will cancel. She said it wasn't right for us to cancel his appointment. I understand what she is saying, but l also feel we have a duty of care to other patients and staff members, is it worth risking him coming in? I want to tell my manager that l will not be nursing if he attends, but l'm feeling pressured to just get on with it. Any advice? Many thanks
