South City Hospital is proud to have implemented the following safety measures in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic
In light of the 2020 Corona Pandemic, South City Hospital realized the urgent need to adapt to the healthcare crisis and took the initiative to build a specialized infectious diseases unit to accommodate Covid-19 patients.

A 23-bedded negative pressure facility was constructed, fully equipped with it’s own critical care equipment, ventilators, an operation theatre and a labor room. In addition, separate pharmacy, laboratory and radiology services, to cater specifically to Covid-19 patients have also been added to the facility.

The infectious diseases ward operates as an isolated unit from the rest of the hospital, therefore minimizing the risk of exposure and cross contamination to patients in other areas of the hospital. Our highly trained consultants and staff are on-call 24 hours a day, with central monitoring in place to observe all patients in critical care.

South City Laboratory services for Covid-19 include PCR testing and 24-hour sample collection / at-home collection, with results made available within 48 hours. All safety measures are strictly practiced and enforced outside testing stations by our personnel.

The importance of personal protective equipment (PPE) is of paramount importance; hence we at South City Hospital ensure all our health care professionals and staff working in the infectious unit ward are adequately protected by face masks, face shields, goggles and hazmat suits. Moreover, all our employees undergo monthly Covid-19 screening to ensure the safety of everyone in the hospital

A new negative pressure emergency room open 24 hours has been constructed, which features 4 designated triage areas to separate out patients with Covid-19 symptoms. The ER is equipped with lifesaving medications; emergency crash carts, defibrillators, ventilators and all the necessary supplies in a tertiary care setup.

Stringent protocols and rules have also been implemented to minimize and restrict the entry of non-essential visitors inside the hospital. Thorough temperature checks are conducted outside the hospital
