Within a week we will celebrate 2 months from the restart of elective surgical activity with the greatest success: no reported case of Covid complication19 in our center.
The months at the top of the contagion curve, when confinement was normal and necessary, and we only intervened in those strictly urgent hip surgeries, are behind us.
When the contagion curve stabilized, always below 1, it was time to resume elective activity, that is, the vast majority of hip surgeries: surgery for femoroacetabular shock, dysplasia and osteoarthritis of the hip in its different presentations by mini-invasive techniques.
From the beginning of May we proceeded through the “Safe Hospital” protocol. Hospital Seguro is a protocol that includes a series of both physical and clinical-diagnostic measures whose objective is to protect all Covid patients, both negative and cured, from possible Covid positives, both in outpatients and in emergencies. operating room area, intensive care and hospitalization plants.
Thanks to the implementation of this protocol and the positive response not only from healthcare personnel but from all the patients cared for (at this time ICATME works at full capacity) we have been able to carry out our activity without any reports from Sars-cov- two.
As with other infectious agents, human beings must adapt to coexist in this new phase.
Thank you all that made this posible. Even so, adapting does not mean letting your guard down at any time and anywhere beyond the hospital environment.
Now, although already during the high curve of the pandemic in Spain, patients could move between Autonomous Communities to be treated in hospital centers with the corresponding document, with the lifting of the State of Alarm Decree, said movement between Autonomous Communities enters a new phase of normality, which never excludes 3 premises for their own good and that of others: distance, hands and mask
