Guidance for preventing, controlling COVID-19 infections in medical institutions | Updated: 2020-04-25 06:30

The video illustrates standard measures by which medical personnel prevent hospital-acquired infections of COVID-19.

It focuses on three locations in a medical institution: the reception desk, the fever clinic, and the general outpatient area, with medical caregivers demonstrating the prescribed procedures in each step in real contexts.

Take, for example, the standard process a doctor goes through in putting on and removing his protective equipment before and after he receives patients in the consulting room of the fever clinic.

Hygienic requirements and the space arrangement in the medical institution are also addressed to minimize nosocomial COVID-19 infections.

With English subtitles and Chinese narrations, the video was released in Jan 2020 by the Bureau of Medical Administration of the National Health Commission of the PRC, with contributions from a group of professional institutions including the National Quality Control Center for Nosocomial Infection Administration, Peking Union Medical College Hospital of Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, and Xiangya Hospital Central South University.
