CORONAVIRUS: A patient on peritoneal dialysis is currently being treated in the special department Corona (crown) at Laniado hospital!
She is the only patient on peritoneal dialysis with coronavirus in Israel and treated in a special Coronavirus department. The patient did not go through the dialysis institute of the hospital and there is, therefore, no fear of contamination of the nursing staff and the patients.
Patients on peritoneal dialysis perform therapeutic procedures themselves, under the nephrological supervision of the hospital.
A patient on peritoneal dialysis with coronavirus was recently admitted to Laniado Hospital.
The patient is currently hospitalized in the coronavirus special department in a stable state and performs her dialysis herself.
The staff of the nephrology department provides this patient with everything necessary so that she can carry out her dialysis herself.
She is the only peritoneal dialysis patient in all of Israel currently hospitalized in a special corona department.
Professor Zvi Shimoni, medical director of Laniado Hospital, said that “the Corona (crown) department in Laniado is a treatment center for all patients with coronavirus including those with chronic diseases.
Our preparation concerns both the medical equipment and the appropriate knowledge updated daily.
We are in contact with medical centers in Israel and around the world and we regularly inform medical staff of new updates.
We are currently preparing the opening of an additional special coronavirus department within the Laniado hospital.”
