Covid-19 Suspected Case Management Plan
If a visitor meets the Covid19 case definition criteria, the following are applied:
The health official of the hotel communicates directly with NPHO for a statement of the suspected case, and instructions for dealing with it.
It is recommended, in the suspected case, to remain in his/her room with the door closed.
In a patient who has symptoms of a respiratory infection (cough, sneezing, catarrh), a simple surgical mask and tissues are given immediately.
If there is a companion of the patient who wishes to stay close and care for him/her, a simple surgical mask is given, and is advised to wash his/her hands every time he/she comes in contact with the patient’s secretions, and certainly before the attendant touches his/her face, or before eating or drinking.
It is advisable to avoid entering the patient’s room if there is no significant reason. If necessary, a member of the hotel staff deals exclusively with the case.
Used protective equipment is discarded in a closed trash bin, and is not reused.
After disposing the protective equipment, hand washing follows.
The Management ensures that there is adequate consumable material directly available to the hotel staff to prevent infections: soap and water or alcohol-based hand washing solution, tissues, simple surgical masks, disposable gloves, thermometers, bin bags, surface wipes.
