ISPAN is pleased to announce Assessment Cosmetic Injection Safety Tool! Position Statement on COVID-19

The International Society of Plastic and Aesthetic Nurses (ISPAN) recognizes that risk for infection is a concern for all healthcare providers, including those in the aesthetic industry (Hotta, 2018). There is currently an outbreak of coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) that has been classified as a global “pandemic” by the World Health Organization (American Nurses Association (ANA), 2020; Centers for Disease Control (CDC), 2020a; Ghebreyesus, 2020). The “key goals for the U.S. healthcare system” when responding to this crisis include reducing mortality and morbidity, minimizing transmission of the disease, protecting healthcare providers, and preserving the functioning of the healthcare system (CDC, 2020a). In order to achieve these goals, plastic and aesthetic nurses must review current evidence and consider how they must adjust their practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the community (ANA, 2020; CDC, 2020a).
