Infor­ma­tion on the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion on the 27th of March 2020

The sit­u­a­tion is still fair­ly calm in Soite’s area and the prepa­ra­tions pro­ceed accord­ing to plan. The prepa­ra­tions and the coop­er­a­tion between dif­fer­ent units has pro­ceed­ed in an exem­plary manner!

No new coro­n­avirus cas­es have been found today either. The coro­n­avirus clin­ic and the helpline for ques­tions about the coro­n­avirus have been even qui­eter than at the begin­ning of the week and less test­ing has been done. We are still wait­ing for the results from some of the test­ing that was done last week (Fri­day and Sat­ur­day). The delay is due to con­ges­tion at the Finnish Insti­tute for Health and Wel­fare Thl.

Helsin­ki Uni­ver­si­ty Hos­pi­tal shares its expe­ri­ences on care of patients with covid-19 week­ly with the health care dis­tricts. They give us very use­ful tips and obser­va­tions about what we should con­cen­trate on in our preparations.

The Min­istry of Social Affairs and Health has giv­en instruc­tions on how to take the extra­or­di­nary cir­cum­stances into account, espe­cial­ly in pri­ma­ry health care. Soite has already act­ed in the way the min­istry rec­om­mends. Remote recep­tions are pri­ma­ry when it comes to non-urgent care.

The task group also observed that the boss­es have been giv­en instruc­tions con­cern­ing employ­ees from Uusi­maa. A wait­ing peri­od of 7 days applies to employ­ees from Uusi­maa before they are allowed to come to Soite’s unit.

The list on changes in the open­ing hours and oth­er changes in Soite was changed when it comes to nurs­es in school and stu­dent health care. Nurs­es were appoint­ed to take calls from pupils/parents.

We wish to remind you of the fact that we inform on the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion on the week­ends only if the sit­u­a­tion changes.
