Korle Bu Hospital Suspends Non-Emergency Surgical Cases For Two Weeks Due To High Covid-19 Infection Among Staff Nurses.

The Deputy Director of Medical Affairs at KBTH ” Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, has brought to notice to halt acceptance and medical caregiving to non- emergency cases, for two weeks as a result of an increment of COVID-19 infection among nurses and other health workers in the surgical department.

SUSPENSION OF NON-EMERGENCY SURGICAL CASES

The Hospital Administration has decided to suspend non-emergency surgical cases for the next two weeks. This is necessitated by the fact that some staff have been infected with Covid-19.

This measure is therefore to protect our clients and the rest of the staff who are still at post and providing care to patients. The suspension will also enable us to reorganize ourselves for the resumption of regular services.

Only dire emergencies will be attended to within this period. We, therefore, request sister health facilities to refer only dire surgical emergencies (Surgery, ENT, Maxillofacial and Obstetrics) to Korle Bu during the suspension period. Other parts of the Hospital are still in full operation.

Thank you.

“The suspension of urgent services will afford the hospital the chance to reorganize itself “for the resumption of regular services.”

 “There has been a recent surge of COVID-19 infections among staff working in the Surgical areas. This has necessitated the self-isolation of the majority of these staff. Hence a decision has been taken to suspend all urgent cases for two (2) weeks. All emergency cases will continue as before,”

“We, therefore, request sister health facilities to refer only dire surgical emergencies (Surgery, ENT, Maxillofacial, and Obstetrics) to Korle Bu during the suspension period. Other parts of the Hospital are still in full operation,” he noted in his statement.
