The directors of the internal departments of hospitals across the country criticized tonight (Wednesday) during a press conference convened on how to manage the corona crisis by the government, and lamented the severe shortage of manpower. They noted that the apparent lack of congestion in the wards, was prevented by the early discharge of patients who had previously been hospitalized for a longer period of time.
Dr. Ayelet Raz, director of the “routine” internal medicine department at Rambam, who previously served as director of the Keter Corona internal medicine department, said that her hospital operates in a method she called “accelerated release” of patients. “In recent weeks there has been a different feeling. The impression is given that if there was some alien coming here to visit, that everything would have looked totally fine. Apparently there are no loads, apparently the departments are not full. So what happened here? We have a patent called Accelerated Releases from the Departments. We live in compromise. That is, we send patients who have previously been hospitalized for a longer period of time to conclude an inquiry that we have seen in the community is not being performed properly. This is to release more stable patients so that they do not return to the hospitals after a day, “she explained.
“This means harming routine patients, which include people with diabetes, cancer and more. But there is no choice, with such volumes of hospitalization it is impossible today to operate under the corona, and after we have reduced the volume of beds by about 40% and the volume of treating staff. “Beyond the corona wards, reinforcement teams are sent to other wards and some of them also go into isolation or are sick,” she added.
