Group implements protocols for Covid-19

All the necessary protocols have been implemented at the seven hospitals of the Busamed Group, including Busamed Paardevlei Private Hospital.

According to Dr Diliza Mji, founder and CEO, the company is working closely with the National Institute of Communicable Diseases (NICD) and the Department of Health.

“Our clinical protocols have been reviewed by a multi-disciplinary oversight committee to ensure continued support of our current infection prevention and the implementation of risk protocols for patients presenting with suspected Covid-19, and in the event of a national outbreak.”

To ensure Busamed hospitals are prepared to manage suspected and positive cases, all staff are receiving ongoing training in accordance with the NICD and World Health Organisation guidelines.

“Our staff are trained to identify and respond according to NICD procedures to any suspected or confirmed case of Covid-19 that presents in a Busamed hospital.”

Information posters on prevention practices and general information have been placed throughout the hospitals, and hand sanitiser is placed at the entrance to each hospital, wards and other points; all visitors must use it when entering or leaving the hospital.

All visitors should maintain a social distance of at least 1 m, should not visit patients if they are unwell and refrain from sitting on patient beds. As a precaution, visitors are further encouraged to call the hospital to confirm visiting times and check whether other visitor restrictions have been implemented.

If you are concerned that you may be infected with the virus, contact the BPPH emergency centre or your specialist doctor before rushing to the hospital, or call the NICD hotline on 0800 029 999.
