Patients hospitalised during the Covid-19 pandemic could not receive any care from family members but were given comprehensive care from the hospital’s medical staff, from dental hygiene to bathing and nutrition.

Providing comprehensive care to inpatients is an effort to limit family visits and prevent epidemics in medical facilities. To facilitate information exchange between patients, family members, and medical staff, the hospital has special phone lines for updates on patients’ health status and care.

All hospitalised patients are screened for the coronavirus. All departments have also set up a temporary isolation area to prevent cross-contamination.

The hospital is hoping to change the habits of family members visiting and caring for patients, among other things. Da Nang is taking the initiative to prevent risks from Covid-19 at medical facilities./.
