the Regions will implement solid test for the coronavirus of all health professionals.
It writes the Danish Regions in a press release.
Staff with the normal patientkontakt should be tested every six weeks, unless the staff is employed in a so-called red municipality. In this case, it will happen every other week.
That a municipality is red, it means that there have been over 20 smittetilfælde per 100,000 population the past week. It is only the case for a single municipality at the present time.
On the departments and institutions with particularly vulnerable patients, staff must be tested every other week.
already it has been decided that all the caring professions need to be tested firmly for coronaviruses. It is part of an agreement between the PM, the regions and the government.
Stephanie Lose (V), chairman of the Danish Regions, says that many employees have accepted an offer to be tested in the course of coronaperioden.
- We are classifying it in contrast to today, where there is a standing offer to be tested. We make sure that it happens at regular intervals and can be done easily and conveniently.
- so do we, as society opens up more and more, and besøgsrestriktioner be removed from the hospitals. Therefore it is a good idea to systematize the effort, says Stephanie Lose.
She stresses, however, that you do not want to force anyone to be tested.
Being an employee tested positive, according to the current guidelines will be initiated an offensive opsporingsprogram.
That means in accordance with the applicable rules, he or she must take home with the same, and the colleagues and patients will be tracked down.
- How is it today, and so it will be in the future, says Stephanie Lose.
