ZAGREB, April 28, 2020 – The Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Hospital in the Croatian coastal town of Rovinj resumed working on Monday, with enhanced protective measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus being in place.
“Rovinj Hospital is opening its doors and for now the rehabilitation centres will be opened. In cooperation with the Istria County Public Health Institute, we tested all our patients prior to their admission and confirmed that they were negative to the virus,” the hospital’s director, Dr. Marinko Rade told Hina.
The hospital will strictly restrict movement within the hospital and create an exceptionally safe premises for patients and medical staff alike, he underscored.
“We’ve prepared high preventative standards that everyone has to respect while the Children’s Clinic is being opened under a special regime because children have to be our priority at this moment,” Rade added.
Anyone who enters the hospital will have to undergo an epidemiological triage and contactless temperature taking. Security will be at a maximum. We are practically working so that the hospital will be the safest place to be in the city, he underlined.
Rade recalled that the Rovinj Hospital “was and remained coronafree,” and that fact has made it possible to reopen its doors in such a short time.
The hospital suspended its activities on 28 March due to the COVID-19 epidemic.
