First mobile hospital for patients with coronavirus fully operational - SES
The first temporary mobile hospital for patients with coronavirus, which was deployed in Ivano-Frankivsk region, is fully operational and receives the first patients, according to the press center of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine.
"As part of the government's order, the State Emergency Service of Ukraine will deploy a mobile hospital in Bohorodchany Central District Hospital. The hospital consists of 30 tents, 24 of which are hospital facilities and have 120 beds," rescuers said.
They say that the hospital has an admission department, an intensive care unit, and patient wards.
At the same time, each bed is equipped with an individual oxygen concentrator.
"The hospital is equipped with autonomous life support systems and can function independently as a health care institution. The work of the headquarters is organized on the spot and interaction is established with local authorities and the medical service of the region," the SES says.
It is reported that the hospital is completely ready to receive COVID-19 patients.
As previously reported, the Ivano-Frankivsk Regional Commission for Technogenic and Environmental Safety and Emergency Situations has decided to impose a "red" level quarantine in the region due to the rapid spread of the coronavirus.
As of Wednesday, February 17, about 73% of beds in the region were filled, and the number of active patients exceeded the figures in Kyiv, while in some settlements of Prykarpattia the bed occupancy rate in hospitals for COVID-19 patients exceeded 90%.
Due to the lack of places for patients with coronavirus in the region, it was decided to deploy the first temporary mobile hospital in Ukraine for patients with COVID-19 on the basis of Bohorodchany and Lysetsk hospitals, as well as Verkhovyna and Zabolotiv multidisciplinary hospitals.
