Isolation Wing (Covid)
The isolation ward admits patients with suspected COVID-19 infection who require medical attention while waiting for PCR test results. The ward is inaccessible from the other wards that nurse Covid positive patients, and stringent infection control measures are taken to avoid cross-infection of both patients and staff. The Isolation Ward allows for respiratory support, emergency ventilation, cardiac monitoring should the need arise.
If the Covid test result returns positive, the patient is admitted to into the main wards; if negative, the patient is transferred to our Lanark Road Hospital in Belgravia for admission and further treatment.
