We’re joined by Dr. Michael Zinner of Baptist Health. As the Chief Executive Officer and Executive Medical Director of Miami Cancer Institute, Dr. Zinner is working to keep his staff and patients safe.
“I’ve been doing this for 45 years, and I’ve never seen anything like what we’re going through now,” he explains.
Before anyone enters the Miami Cancer Institute, Dr. Zinner has implemented various precautions during the pandemic, including screening every visitor, staff member, and patient.
“We’re blessed with people and healthcare workers who have a passion for what they do,” he says. “Of course, they worry about themselves and their families. That’s why we’re doing everything we can in terms of personal protective equipment.”
As for advice if someone isn’t feeling well, Dr. Zinner suggests the “worried well” to stay at home, which is those who have an allergy or cold. They should also take advantage of various telehealh applications and websites. However, if you’re someone who is developing a fever or lower respiratory symptom, call a doctor as soon as possible.
