Home-care guidelines for patients with COVID-19
People who test positive for COVID-19 are most likely to only experience mild symptoms and recover without requiring special treatment or hospitalisation, especially if up-to-date with COVID-19 vaccinations.1
This guide contains information for general practitioners (GPs) who are providing home- based care in a private residential home (including public or community housing), in residential aged care facilities and supported accommodation, for patients who have tested positive for COVID-19 and require additional support from general practice.
Caring for patients with COVID-19 in their homes allows the provision of appropriate holistic care, minimises the impact on the healthcare system, frees up hospital beds for patients with severe illness (or who otherwise require hospitalisation) and minimises the risk of transmission within a hospital setting.
