Merit Badge Requirements for Hospital Privileges During COVID-19 — The American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM) and the American Board of Osteopathic Emergency Medicine (AOBEM) along with all Emergency Medicine organizations call for an immediate suspension of additional certifications or short courses, such as BLS, ACLS, PALS, ATLS, needed to obtain or maintain hospital privileges during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Solidarity of Purpose — We are faced today with a health care crisis the likes of which we've never before encountered. This rapidly spreading pandemic will require everyone to do their part to slow and eventually stop its spread. Everything turns on our willingness to work together toward this solidarity of purpose: To confront COVID-19, mitigate this pandemic, and minimize the loss of life.
