I would love to see an update talking about triage in the era of curbside service, especially as more and more hospitals are at capacity. My own hospital has been working on modifying our process to deal with the realities of patients waiting out of sight (in cars vs. waiting rooms) and all hospital cages being full and decreased staffing due to illness and/or quarrantine.
