As the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds itself again, it is putting a blank wall between Non-COVID patients and their visits to the hospitals. On one hand, people are scared to visit hospitals for their treatments, and on the flip side, Doctors and hospitals are exclusively focusing on covid patients. Many medical practitioners have adapted online consultations but there are certain cases especially of pregnant women and heart patients who need to visit the hospitals for their checkups and treatments.
Moreover, due to this pestilence, many surgeries have been postponed and only critical ones are getting the priority. Even in this case, when most of the patients are instructed to do RT – PCR test, 15 – 20% of them are showing up positive.
The other major effect of this coronavirus wave is that there are myriad hospitals that have declared themselves exclusively working for covid patients which have left no space for Non-COVID patients. However, many medical practitioners and institutions are working on this cause and have started providing Non-COVID beds for the sufferers.
You might be one of those Non-COVID sufferers and scared to visit hospitals, but you can take up a few safety measures as a last resort to save yourself from getting in touch with this curse and continue with your health treatments. Let’s dig into it:
- Book a prior appointment with your doctor to avoid queuing up in the hospital. Wear the mask, carry sanitizer, gloves as well as a bottle of water from home when you step out for the visit.
- Taking only one healthy person as an escort would be a great option to avoid overcrowding.
- Follow 2 feet (practically speaking) of space with other people to neglect the chances of coming in contact with an infected person in the hospital. Also, wash your hands before and after visiting the doctor.
- Cashless payments are recommended in the hospital to avoid catching the virus.
