Governor's Expert Emergency Epidemic Response Committee (GEEERC) has revised the Crisis Standards of Care for Colorado. Medical experts and partners helped review the content and CDPHE solicited community feedback and engagement throughout the process.
Crisis Standards of Care are guidelines for how the medical community should allocate scarce resources such as ventilators and intensive care unit beds in the extreme case when patient needs exceed the resources available.
