A Quad-demic of Respiratory Viral Infections: RSV, Flu, Covid-19, and Hospital Industry Crisis Standards of Care

Course Description

This CE course will discuss circulating respiratory viral infections, including respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), influenza, and Covid-19, often referred to as the “tripledemic.” An overview of scientific information regarding the viruses, immune responses, and transmission modes will be provided. Participants will then explore how the hospital industry’s normalizing of crisis standards of care has created a quad-demic and set the stage for the surge in respiratory viruses to become a crisis in health care. The implications for nurses’ advocacy for safe patient care will be discussed.

Course Objectives

After this course, participants should be able to:

  • Describe how RSV, flu, and Covid are transmitted
  • Discuss implications of the quad-demic for nurses and their advocacy for safe patient care.
