COVID-19

COVID-19

  • The COVID-19 pandemic had become a global public health emergency, and the number of cases and deaths have been increasing drastically across the globe. At UMMC, the hospital infection control committee had defined the staff's roles and responsibilities during the pandemic outbreak. We have isolation wards for patients with mild-to-moderate disease and negative pressure intensive care units for patients with severe-to-critical COVID-19. We also offer telemedicine or video consultation for patients with mild disease at home isolation. 

    Our wards are equipped with oxygen support and ventilators for critically ill patients. We have specially designed the negative-pressure rooms to reduce the spread of infection to non-COVID-19 patients. These rooms have 12 air exchanges per hour with 99% air removal efficiency. Our entire staff treating COVID-19 patients wear personal protective equipment to guard against airborne transmission of the virus. 

    At UMMC, we are screening everyone for COVID-19 symptoms as they enter our premises. All the patients are tested for COVID-19 before hospital admission and 72 hours before the surgery is performed. We are also screening or staff members and physicians regularly. All staff members, visitors, and patients should strictly wear their masks in the facility. Our care team treating patients with COVID-19 wear personal protective equipment to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We also keep our facility extremely clean. The surfaces and equipment are disinfected and cleaned using products that can kill a wide range of bacteria and viruses, including the virus causing COVID-19. Our procedure, treatment, and operating rooms are disinfected frequently according to the guidelines. We follow physical distancing guidelines for both patients and staff members. Our waiting room chairs have been spaced 6 feet apart, and only a few people are allowed to sit at a time
