530 UST Hospital staff under quarantined




Prayers more than ever are badly needed for our fellow Filipinos most especially the medical professionals – doctors, nurses, and other hospital staffs are in the thick of the battle against the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or COVID-19.
News got out that around 530 staff of the University of Santo Tomas (UST) Hospital were quarantined after they were exposed to positive cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), this according to the hospital’s administration.

Because of this the operations of the hospital are severely affected, in addition to the other reasons like lack of personal protective equipment, and the inability of some employees to report to work due to the Luzon-wide enhanced community quarantine.

“A number of staff [were] admitted as persons under investigation or sent home, or admitted as persons under monitoring (presently a total of 530 hospital staff including consultants, fellows, residents, nurses, and aides have been quarantined),” the hospital said.
In lieu of this fact the hospital administration said they had consolidated several wards and instructed staff and trainees to observe an alternating skeletal duty to cope with the temporary loss of staff.
“On a positive note, this week, we discharged a COVID-positive patient who was initially critically ill but now clinically well and fulfilled the Department of Health discharge criteria,” they added.
