Ordering the Temporary Cessation of All Elective and Non-Essential Surgeries
and Procedures and Preserving Personal Protective Equipment and Ventilators
in Colorado Due to the Presence of COVID-19
Governor institutes temporary ban on all elective and non-essential
surgeries and procedures, affecting Medical, Dental and Veterinary licensees
The Order affects all hospitals, outpatient facilities, and procedure providers. Rural and critical access hospitals -- though strongly advised to follow this guidance to maximize resources -- are exempt from this mandate. Medical, Dental and Veterinary licensees under the Division of Professions and Occupations at DORA are impacted.
Procedures in those professions may take place only under the following conditions:
- There is a threat to the patient’s life if the surgery or procedure is not performed.
- There is a threat of permanent dysfunction of an extremity or organ system if the surgery or procedure is not performed.
- There is a risk of metastasis or progression of staging of a disease or condition if a surgery or procedure is not performed.
- There is a risk that the patient’s condition will rapidly deteriorate if the surgery or procedure is not performed, and there is a threat to life, or to an extremity or organ system, or of permanent dysfunction or disability.
Only individuals essential to conducting a surgery or procedure will be allowed in the surgery, procedure suite, or other outpatient care areas where personal protective equipment is required in order to preserve PPE.
