Mea­sures in Soite

Changes in Soite due to the coro­n­avirus epi­dem­ic

According to information from the Finnish institute of health and welfare THL, it is likely that the coronavirus epidemic is going to spread, although no epidemic has yet been detected in Central Ostrobothnia.

Soite has imposed restrictions in order to prevent the coronavirus epidemic from spreading, and has moved personnel to the units where they are needed the most.  This is why:

Changes in open­ing hours in Soite due to the coro­n­avirus epi­dem­ic

We want to guarantee urgent care during the epidemic that is as good and of as high a quality as possible. Soite imposes restrictions in order to prevent the coronavirus epidemic from spreading, and is getting prepared to move personnel to the units where they are needed the most.

This is why the opening hours change in Soite’s units, and some of the non-urgent appointments are cancelled. The situation is assessed daily, and the new opening hours and changes in Soite are updated on this list.

Soites health centres, the emergency clinic and social services are open and serve clients. If a client is given an appointment to Soite, a professional person has come to the conclusion, that coming for treatment entails a smaller risk for the patient than leaving the health problem untreated. We want to stress that it is safe to come to Soite and that it is recommended that health problems are treated in time. Otherwise, they may get worse and lead to a need of urgent care in the emergency clinic, in specialised health care or in social services.

Chan­ges in ope­ning hours

Mainly patients that need urgent care are treated on the outpatient clinics at the central hospital. Depending on the coronavirus situation, necessary non-urgent care is also given.

There are changes in the opening hours in the following units (the list has been updated on the 29th of May 2020):

The children’s hospital: 

If the coronavirus situation continues to be calm in Soite’s area, non-urgent outpatient care is expanded gradually when it comes to paediatrics, child neurology, child psychiatry and adolescent psychiatry. The goal continues to be to mainly provide non-urgent outpatient care remotely (e.g. by phone or video). Patients and families are informed of a new appointment if the time is moved forward or changed.

Urgent and acute care is guaranteed in all situations (e.g. care on ward for children and youths and intensive care of the newborn).

In the paediatric emergency clinic (lasten päivystys), the care of all patients under the age of 16 who present symptoms of infection has been concentrated to a separate infection unit with a separate entrance and its own personnel. The paediatric emergency clinic works normally when it comes to non-infectious diseases (call 06 826 4444 before coming to the emergency clinic).The support of the rehabilitation counsellors in the neuropsychiatric team is available by phone and video on 040 804 3526/Susanna and 040 804 3527/Tanja. Consultation support within Soite and for cooperation partners is also given remotely. The families are contacted about arrangements when it comes to appointments that have already been agreed on.
