Hospital puts prevention plans into action

The Life Rosepark Hospital has put into action several key plans to minimise the spread of Covid-19.

This includes the provision of hand sanitisers and a brief verbal travel history and wellness and health check before entering the premises.

Dr Charl van Loggerenberg, general manager of Emergency Medicine at Life Healthcare, says as part of these precautionary safety measures and to reduce the foot traffic within the hospital the following measures have been implemented:

  • Visiting times have been restricted to one hour in total per day – from 10:30 to 11:00 and from 19:30 to 20:00.
  • The number of visitors permitted during visiting times is one per patient, per indicated visiting time slot.

Phone the hospital to check for updated visiting times.

In addition to the above, no children are allowed visit the hospital unless it is an emergency, as children have an under-developed immune system.

Persons over the age of 60 and those who have compromised immune systems must also avoid visiting patients until further notice.

As per the management of any other infections, the hospital has a team of dedicated in­fection prevention specialists who are experienced and qualified healthcare workers and have received extensive training and guidelines around Covid-19 provided by the National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD).

More information on Covid-19 is available at nicd.ac.za/diseases-a-z-index/covid-19.

People can also call the 24-hour hotline on 0800-029-999 or 0800-111-132.
