Administrative Employee Confirmed Covid Positive

May 24, 2021

We have been informed that an administrative employee has been confirmed as a positive COVID-19 case on 22 May 2021 (Sat). The employee had been identified as a household contact of a positive case in an existing cluster in the community.

The affected employee does not work in the wards or clinics, and has no direct contact with patients. The hospital is supporting the affected employee to render all necessary assistance.

The employee is fully vaccinated, and was swabbed on 11 May (Tue) as part of the hospital’s precautionary testing exercise mandated by the Ministry of Health. The swab result was negative. The employee has been working from home since 13 May (Thu).

Colleagues in the same office and those who have had possible contact with the employee within the hospital have since been swabbed and tested negative. The affected workspace, as well as common areas such as lifts and toilets, also underwent deep cleansing and disinfection on the same day.

The hospital has been taking precautions and following strict infection control measures according to MOH guidelines. Our business continuity plans are in place since early 2020, with split team operations and no cross deployment, to ensure minimal disruption to our normal operations.

We will continue our operations as usual, and will continue to closely monitor the situation to ensure the well-being of our employees, inpatients and outpatients.

我院一名行政人员在2021年5月22日被确诊为COVID-19病例。其雇员的家庭成员是早前宣布的社区感染群中的确诊病例。

该名雇员的工作范围并不包括病房或诊所,且不曾与病患有任何接触。院方正与受影响的雇员紧密联系,并将给予一切所需援助。

该雇员已完成兩剂疫苗注射,并在医院的安排下,曾于5月11日(星期二)进行预防性试子检测,结果呈阴性。从5月13日(星期四)起,该名雇员便一直居家办工。

与其雇员在同区工作的同事,以及所有可能曾在医院内与其有过接触者都已在院方接获确诊通知后接受了试子检测,结果都呈阴性。此外,受影响的办公室以及电梯及厕所等共用空间已经在医院获悉病例确诊同日进行深度清洁与消毒。

自COVID-19疫情爆发以来,本院一直紧遵卫生部指导,采取严谨的疫情防控措施,包括分区工作制度。医院将如常作业,同时紧密观察情况,确保雇员、住院以及门诊病患的健康受到保障。
