Infected separated out in tents at CSK: "May be the calm before the storm"
The coronavirus infection is spreading. The healthcare system needs to take new measures, such as a tent outside the A&E at CSK. There, patients at risk will be identified quickly, and those who need to be protected from the coronavirus.
In the tent, all patients are taken in. Adults over the age of 18 enter the tent one way, children have their own entrance.
They are met by nurses who ask questions about, for example, a fever, cough, if they have shortness of breath, have sniffles or a sore throat. Body temperature, blood oxygen saturation levels and heart rate are measured. No tests are carried out.
We make an assessment of whether they can go home and take care of themselves at home, or whether they should be admitted to the A&E
-Therese Bachman, A&E Department Manager
In the tent, it’s about quickly identifying patients in need of treatment or protection.
