Episode 4: Answering the COVID-19 Hotline
In less than two weeks, nurses answering MetroHealth’s COVID-19 hotline have talked to over 4,200 callers. More than 2,100 of them have then been connected to doctors for an over-the-phone visit. MetroHealth primary care physician Dr. David Margolius helped launch the hotline and has worked the phones from the beginning. He describes how it works and what it’s meant to not only worried patients but to the scores of doctors and nurses on the other side of the line.
