Relatives’ visits to patients admitted to hospital wards have been suspended
A patient admitted to Vignola Hospital in the internal medicine unit tested positive for Covid. The patient, negative and asymptomatic on the first smear, was immediately placed in isolation and Ausl activated an emergency smear schedule for all other patients in the same ward; five more positives emerged. In addition, the health surveillance company ordered medical professionals and health workers to take a smear.
Coordinators of internal medicine departments collected admission cards for guests (starting from family members of positive patients and roommates) to report to the Public Health Department for the necessary epidemiological research. Relatives’ visits to patients admitted to hospital wards have been suspended.
