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

The Hip Unit, as well as all ICATME, have successfully started elective non-urgent surgical activity (for example: arthrosis surgery, femoroacetabular shock, hip dysplasia, …) since the beginning of May. of the SAFE HOSPITAL protocol that emerged from the adaptation of the protocols of the German Society of Orthopedic Surgery (DGOOC), International Hip Society (IHS), American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) and European Society of Arthroscopy of the knee and Sports (ESSKA), presenting its widely satisfactory results, protecting patients who have not suffered from COVID disease as well as those who were cured of asymptomatic positive COVID patients, by means of specific clinical and radiological examinations mandatory in the Dexeus University Hospital, Grupo Quirón Salud.

For the interest of readers, both healthcare and non-healthcare, an image is left that corresponds to the outline chart of the Safe Hospital protocol that is followed for the introduction of surgical patients according to the strictest safety standards.

The Hip Unit has successfully returned to its usual activity. In a very satisfactory way, maintaining the “negative Covid circuit” protocol implemented by ICATME and Dexeus University Hospital, which isolates and protects patients who have not suffered from Covid-19 and those who have been cured.

The care activity of patients with pathologies of the locomotor system is resumed.

REMEMBER TO GO TO YOUR APPOINTMENT:

1. You must wear the mask.
2. Try to be punctual, neither before nor after the indicated time.
3. Only the patient will be able to access the consultation, unless he is a dependent or a minor.

After the stabilization of infections by COVID 19, the Quirón Dexeus University Hospital and consequently ICATME, we have gradually resumed our activity. To do this, we have restructured the physical space of our consultations and waiting rooms, with the aim of avoiding crowds and guaranteeing physical distance. In addition to the reforms of the workspace, the state of the professionals is monitored day by day.

For this new phase, ICATME has a Coronavirus prevention manual, of which we can highlight:

  • Visiting times have been spaced
  • Consultation hours have been increased with a greater demand for punctuality
  • Visiting time is minimized, to avoid crowding between patients
  • It is essential to have an Appointment to be attended at our facilities
  • The use of a mask is mandatory
  • You must go to the appointment at the exact time, neither before nor after.

In these conditions, with an exhaustive preoperative procedure focused on the Coronavirus, with the measures established in the operating rooms and the measures adopted by ICATME in the doctor’s offices, we can offer a safe environment to carry out surgical interventions, and follow-up in our facilities in person. and by telemedicine, if applicable, to avoid avoidable displacement.

As we have been able to read in media such as the Medical Writing or the German newsletter BR24, a study carried out by the University of Eindhoven (Netherlands) together with the Catholic University of Leuven (Belgium), shows that the virus particles that remain floating in the air when we are in motion, they require a greater distance between people.

The study’s recommendation is that we should maintain a distance of 4m when walking and more than 10m when running.

During the ascent phase and the peak phase of the Covid 19 pandemic curve, the Hip Unit has only deferred those non-urgent interventions (also called “electives”) following the rules dictated by the Alarm State Decree.

The protocols have been followed in the entire group of Quirónsalud hospitals. With the proper protection regulations, both for patients and healthcare personnel, and in completely separate circuits for Covid – and + patients, we have managed to satisfactorily attend to hip emergencies and their corresponding interventions.

Consultations have been made in the form of a telephone and telematic visit, to minimize the presence of patients in hospital facilities. In the case that attendance has been compulsory, they have been carried out with due spatial and temporal separation.

These prevailing rules will be followed until further notice. However, the ICATME hip unit, in view of the de-escalation of the curve in Spain, will resume its activity in a very short time under extremely strict preoperative, intraoperative and extraoperative protocols.

From here we want to thank the Quirónsalud group and its network of professionals, and especially those with whom we work at the Dexeus University Hospital for making it possible.

Dr Ribas participates in the Webinar, promoted by the German Society DGOOC for German speaking countries. In this virtual congress the operation of the Hip Unit during the pandemic in its different phases was explained.

A protocol for restarting habitual surgical activity was also discussed based on those proposed by the same DGOOC, AAHKS, IHS, ESSKA (scientific societies of the specialty in Europe and North America).
