Guidelines regarding coronavirus
Due to development of the coronavirus, the Danish Health Authorities has asked the entire private health sector to stop surgery in full anesthesia from March 28 and hand over anesthesia equipment and personnel i.e. to the national COVID 19 emergency force. Patients will be contacted directly for rebooking. It is still possible to get preliminary examinations, certain surgeries in local anesthesia, certain endoscopies as well as x-rays, MRI, CT- and ultrasound scans. Call us and ask if we can help you.
The private hospitals are part of the national emergency force. Therefore, the Danish Health Authorities has asked the private healthcare to stop surgery in full anesthesia from March 28 and hand over anesthesia equipment and personnel i.e. to the national COVID 19 emergency force. We naturally support this.
Already on March 17, we closed down for cosmetic surgery and treatments, obesity operations. fertility treatment and health examinations
What should you do as a patient?
We will contact all patients directly for re-booking of their surgery. It is yet too soon to tell when we can resume surgery in full anesthesia, but we very much hope that the COVID-19 situation is sufficiently under control before summer.
What can we still offer you?
You will continue to be able to get preliminary examinations, certain surgeries in local anesthesia, certain endoscopies as well as x-rays, MRI, CT- and ultrasound scans. Call us and ask if we can help you.
For the safety of everyone, we CANNOT receive you if:
- You have traveled abroad within the last 2 weeks (even if you don't have symptoms)
- You have had close contact with a person infected with Corona virus
- You have a fever, cough, swallowing pain or difficulty in breathing
We do not offer testing for Corona virus
Testing and treatment in relation to Corona virus handling is only taking place at public hospitals. Therefor, we do not offer testing for Corona virus. Contact your GP on the phone.
Relatives not allowed at the hospital
In order to reduce the spread of corona virus and protect weak and vulnerable citizens, the government has put a stop to hospital visits. This means that relatives no longer can accompany or visit patients in our hospitals. This does not include parents to underage children.
How do we protect you?
We always focus on hygiene and safety.
- Hand disinfection is for free use in our patient areas
- We make sure that patients do not sit close in our waiting areas
- Our healthcare professionals do not shake hands
- We are very strict in terms of hygiene and sterile procedures
What can you do to help?
Coronavirus typically spreads in places with many people by handshakes and small drops from coughing and sneezing. Therefore, take the following precautions:
- Wash your hands frequently and use hand disinfection
- Cough or sneeze in your sleeve - not in your hands
- Avoid handshakes, cheeks and hugs - limit physical contact
- Pay attention to cleaning - both at home and at your the workplace
- Keep your distance and ask others to pay attention
It is so important that we all look after each other and protect ourselves and others - especially during this time.
