We remain a safe place – Riverside

Riverside Medical Center Inc. yesterday issued a public advisory stating that it remains a safe place for healthcare needs.

            “We ask for your kind cooperation in stopping the spread of unsubstantiated messages, as well as baseless reports that often lead to unreliable news having a harmful effect on the public,” it said in the advisory posted on its Facebook page.

    “We are doing our best to keep you and the community safe and well,” added.

       The hospital issued the statement following reports that one of its nurses tested positive for COVID-19. 

            In the light of the  pandemic and to address the increasing number of COVID patients in the community, RMCI has a designated COVID-19 unit at the fifth  floor of the hospital with a designated quarantine area for suspected and probable cases, and an isolation area for confirmed cases, it said.

            This area completely separates COVID patients from non-COVID patients, it said.

            “We also have separate medical teams handling COVID patients from non-COVID patients,” it added.

            Safety protocols within the hospital have been set up to ensure the safety of all patients and health workers, the advisory said.

            To further ensure the safety of everyone that enters the hospital, there are zoning areas within the premises that have been classified to designate the proper and safe use of PPEs, it added.
