Operating theatres re-opened at The Urology Hospital, Pretoria

Statement from The Urology Hospital, Pretoria, on Covid-19 status – 20 June 2020

Operating theatres have re-opened at The Urology Hospital, Pretoria, following sanitisation and decontamination after 32 theatre staff and two doctors tested positive for Covid-19

The operating theatres where the infected staff work were temporarily closed this week to allow for terminal cleaning in line with Covid-19 protocols and the hospital’s standard disaster management plan. The decontaminated theatres were re-opened on Saturday, June 20, 2020.

No other areas of the hospital have been affected at this stage and they remain open and functioning normally under strict Covid-19 preventative measures. Visitors have not been allowed into the hospital since the start of the pandemic in terms of standard Covid-19 management protocols.

The hospital is in contact with infected staff to offer support. All other theatre staff and doctors have been tested with no further positive cases at this stage.

The hospital’s Covid-19 task team has been following all protocols from the outset in line with the National Department of Health, National Institute for Communicable Diseases, and the World Health Organisation. These include electronic screening, frequent hand washing, providing appropriate personal protective equipment and practicing social distancing.

The safety of our patients, staff and doctors is our greatest priority.

Updates on the situation will be posted intermittently on the hospital’s website.
