As it has throughout the pandemic, UCLA Health is carefully monitoring COVID-19 testing and hospitalization data as well as other details to ensure our overriding priority – providing safe, high-quality care to all of our patients regardless of medical condition.
Through strategic planning and close coordination, UCLA Health continues to offer a full range of services, including exceptional nursing care, consistent with our existing policies and California and Los Angeles County public health guidelines.
In the event that demand for critical resources severely outstrips supply, UCLA Health will refer to an ethical and equitable framework to guide decisions on allocation of care. These Crisis Standards of Care were developed by critical care physicians and bioethicists from across the University of California’s health care and academic enterprise.
The standards are based on the core principles of saving the most lives possible, ensuring decisions are driven by objective clinical criteria and reducing the perpetuation of inequities in access and care that historically exist in the U.S. health care system.
