Answer

Postoperative inpatient care

Implement strategies to optimize resource use, protect patients and health-care workers, and minimize length of hospital stay.

Patients with tracheotomy or laryngectomy

Health-care workers should use PPE and implement appropriate precautions when coming into contact with patients with tracheotomy or laryngectomy, especially during aerosol-generating procedures.
