The COVID-19 pandemic has posed novel infection-control challenges for hospitals around the globe. One infection-control strategy that has been widely used in the context of other outbreaks is patient cohorting. This strategy refers to the placement of all patients exposed to the same laboratory-confirmed infectious agent in one location within the hospital. Little is known about the current utilization of this strategy with non-critically ill COVID-19 patients. An international multicenter, survey study was conducted to identify what strategies are planned or in place for patients with COVID-19 who are not critically ill. The survey was distributed from March 23-29th, 2020 to GIM physicians in Canada, USA, Denmark, Singapore, Hong Kong, and England. Of the 31 hospitals, 29 (94%) indicated that they plan on cohorting all GIM patients with COVID-19 to one location in the hospital. Among these 29 hospitals, 23 (79%) had implemented the plan at the time of the survey. The primary reasons for this decision were to limit the spread of COVID-19 and conserve PPE use. In conclusion, in the face of a novel virus there is near unanimity in the practice of patient cohorting as a potential mitigation strategy.
