Hospitals were bracing for the wave of COVID-19 patients. But as the coronavirus curve flattens, they’re finally feeling a sense of temporary steadiness. Enough of it, anyway, to resume some elective surgeries that they’d had to postpone, to keep beds and staff available.
But it won’t be as simple as re-opening their doors to non-COVID patients. So, what will elective surgeries look like now?
