Pasay hospital suspends admissions for Covid

The Pasay City General Hospital (PCGH) would temporarily suspend admissions to its emergency room (ER) for both confirmed and non-coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) patients, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.

A media advisory said Pasay's Covid-19 referral hospital is nearing full capacity, with its ward for confirmed cases now at critical risk status, prompting the hospital to accept only Pasay residents for Covid-19 and non-Covid admissions.

The hospital said 90 percent of its dedicated beds in the intensive care unit (ICU) are occupied, while 72 percent of its Covid-19 beds are in use.

PCGH officer in charge, Dr. John Victor de Gracia, said four positive patients are at the hospital's triage areas, three of whom have been intubated.

"We will open again once we have decongested and disinfected the (ER) area," he said.

De Gracia said only 12 isolation beds and three regular Covid-19 beds are available in the hospital, while 40 percent of dedicated beds at the transition ward are being used.

"Please bear with us, we are now overwhelmed sa (in) ER. Please redirect all (to) transfer to one hospital command for assistance. Once we convert our probable wards to confirmed beds, we will advise the group that we can accept again positive patients for admission. Salamat sa pang-unawa (Thank you for understanding)," he said.

Although the hospital is currently overwhelmed, de Gracia reported zero mortality rate for confirmed Covid-19 cases.

Pasay has logged 599 active cases out of 15,735 confirmed cases, with 411 deaths and 14,725 recoveries as of Friday.
