Tertiary care (L3) facilities only for critical Corona patients

Tertiary care (L3) facilities only for critical Corona patients

S.A.S. Nagar, July 14, 2020: To keep the tertiary care (L3) facilities vacant and ready for the treatment of critical COVID-19 patients, at the behest of District Administration the private hospitals with larger medical infrastructure will extend home care treatment plans to asymptomatic corona virus-positive patients, informed Girish Dayalan, Deputy Commissioner SAS Nagar.

Deputy Commissioner informed that it has been observed that many times L3 medical facilities are occupied by those patients who can afford treatment in these facilities rather than those who actually require admission to them on emergent medical grounds. So, in order to ensure optimum utilization of health infrastructure and making available L3 facilities for critical patients, the tertiary care (L3) hospitals would extend the medical services at home to the corona positive patients who do not require a medical supply of oxygen or need not be put ventilator but just require medical surveillance.

He clarified that for a non-critical patient who takes admission into an L3 hospital just to avoid his co-morbid family members or kids from exposure to virus, rooms have been made available in certain hotels where they can check-in and avail home care treatment facility from any tertiary care hospital.

Similarly, the reverse referral concept has been evolved wherein once the critical patient recovers and does not require L3 infrastructure he would be referred back to L2, L1 or home isolation so that L3 facility may be extended to the critical patients.

Making an appeal to the public to support the district administration to extend optimum health infrastructure, Deputy Commissioner said that they may in case of need check into only those medical facilities which the degree of illness demands.

As of now, Fortis and Max Hospital Mohali are extending home care plans and the hotels which have made available rooms for self-isolation are Hotel Wood Crest, Zirakpur, JD Residency, Mohali, Rockland, Zirakpur, Black Diamond, Zirakpur, Royal Park Zirakpur, Arista, Kharar and Hotel Zodiac.
