Regions within the Regional Consultation Acute Care Chain (ROAZ) have made agreements about the distribution of corona patients, but according to the NZa these agreements are not being met everywhere. How it is possible that this does not work, the spokesman cannot say on Tuesday. The NZa will discuss the problem with the regions. If patients cannot be transferred from a full hospital, regular care may have to be further scaled down, the spokesperson explains. “Of course we really want to prevent that.”
There are currently just under a thousand corona patients in Dutch hospitals. Most are located in Amsterdam, Leiden, The Hague and Rotterdam. In the past two weeks, approximately 180 people have been relocated from their home region to other parts of the country.
Response of Minister Van Ark
“It is good that the NZa is on top of this and is entering into discussions with the regions,” said Minister Tamara van Ark (Medical Care). “It is imperative that hospitals work well together to spread the number of Covid-19 patients so that care can continue as much as possible.”
“We realize that it is very difficult for healthcare providers and patients. I regularly consult with the field about where the bottlenecks are and where we can provide support. I will also explain this in a letter to the Lower House in the short term. But the care is not eternally elastic, it is really very important that everyone adheres to the measures. ”
