            Abstract

            Socioeconomically disadvantaged people are more frequent users of healthcare, as are the elderly. This situation is now disrupted with the rapid onset COVID-19 pandemic and its effect on the health system. Amidst a great deal of uncertainty and mixed messages from the WHO, Ministries of health and scientific communities, a methodology to keep the standard operating procedures of the school needs to be in place in order to allow the hospital to respond to its catchment area requirements. A number of focus groups and planning sessions were conducted using a purposeful sample of service providers in Ain Shams University Hospitals. A set of three guiding documents were generated and tested for agreeability and utility. All hospitals need to join forces to systematically organize the chaotic situation we are living with this post COVID-19 pandemic.
