Managing COVID-19: A guide for emergency departments with limited resources

Updated: Oct 16, 2023

The COVID-19 pandemic will stretch hospital resources all over the world. Emergency

Departments (EDs) in high-income countries are vulnerable, but those in low and middleincome countries are likely to be impacted more significantly.

Developed by the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine (ACEM), this guide provides consensus-based advice on how to optimise resources during the pandemic.

The information is structured into four components:

  • Systems

  • Space

  • Supplies

  • Staff

The information in this guide is generic in nature, and will not be applicable to every ED. Although the guide references technical guidance from the World Health Organization (WHO), local guidelines and procedures should be followed wherever they exist.
