Request for a specific donation for the vital medical equipment of the Coronavirus Departments at the Laniado hospital.
At the start of the COVID-19 crisis in Israel about a month ago, Laniado Hospital opened a Special Coronavirus Department.
The latter has 30 beds, including 5 with respirators. A remote control system has also been set up within this Department.
Following the opening of this Department, the service of doctors, nurses and all hospital staff was increased.
A biological screening center was opened in an outdoor tent. It has 2 beds and several ambulatory care stations.
The hospital had to buy a lot of protective equipment, drugs, and consumables. To this end, a large additional tent has been installed as a warehouse for emergency stocks.
The Emergency Departments have been divided into two: an "ordinary" emergency department which deals with patients without symptoms of the Corona Virus, and a special emergency department for patients likely to be infected with COVID-19. All this, in addition to the medical triage at the entrances to the hospital and the biological emergency service.
After two weeks of the war against the coronavirus, the hospital opened a second Coronavirus Department. The latter has 35 treatment stations and at this stage all patients with the virus will be treated there. In total, there are therefore currently 2 Coronavirus Departments capable of accommodating 65 patients, 40 of whom are on respiratory assistance. In addition, we are currently preparing, in accordance with the directives of the Ministry of Health, 3 additional Coronavirus Departments in order to counter the outbreak of the epidemic. Laniado Hospital will, therefore, have a total of 5 Coronavirus Departments capable of treating a total of 152 patients, including 97 on respiratory assistance.
The total investment of the Laniado hospital in the construction and equipment of the two Coronavirus Departments amounts to $ 4,900,000.
The Ministry of Health agrees to pay $ 3,435,000 for Construction works and part of the Equipment such as Ventilators, Monitors, Infusion Pumps and Syringe Pumps. The missing amount for the equipment is $ 1,465,000.
