Talon General Hospital has long been dedicated in taking care of the sick in our community. During this COVID-19 pandemic, the hospital’s commitment of giving you the best, safest care is one of its top priorities.
TGH infection control measures are consistently practiced to ensure that the hospital remains a safe place for patients to receive care, one of which is the regular SARS-CoV-2 virus detection (RT-PCR) testing for the whole staff.
In partnership with Philippine Red Cross, the entire TGH medical and support staff underwent RT-PCR testing for the fourth time last March 4, 2021. TGH is fortunate and grateful to have commendable staff members who courageously and continuously serve as part of the healthcare system despite the risks.
Aside from the regular testing and disinfection, the hospital also still requires the minimum health standards of wearing a face mask and full-face shield, and keeping a 6-foot distance from others at all times. In addition, the following are also implemented:
- Temperature Check
- Screening and interview on patients
- QR Code Health Declaration Form for the staff
- One guardian per patient
- No Visitor Policy
- Screening and Testing: All patients for admissions will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms as well and shall undergo COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Testing and Chest X-Ray
It has been a year of battle against COVID-19 and TGH understands the challenges everyone has been facing. The hospital appreciates your cooperation and just as before, it continues to pray for healing.
