COVID-19 – Information and guidelinesCategories: Articles | News
Do not come to our hospital with symptoms or if you have been diagnosed with COVID-19
If you have symptoms of respiratory disease or if you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 before your visit to our hospital or during treatment, please inform our staff without delay.
The instructions also apply to any family members and escorts accompanying them.
I have been diagnosed with COVID-19, what about treatment?
In order to protect our patients and staff, we generally do not provide treatment to patients with COVID-19, unless the Chief Clinical Director makes a different decision if the situation so requires. The assessment is always made on an individual basis, taking into account the cancer’s situation and treatment methods, as well as the patient’s condition.
Symptoms should never be hidden and you should not be admitted to the hospital if you have common flu symptoms or COVID-19. Treatment of the cancer patient can be safely continued once the patient has recovered.
It is also possible to arrange an appointment with our oncologists through a remote connection.
If you experience symptoms, please inform our staff and agree on the next steps.
Do I need to wear a face mask?
At the moment, wearing a face mask in the hospital is not mandatory. If you wish, you will receive a face mask from our reception when you arrive at the hospital.
If you would like the staff to wear a mask with you, let them know.
Paxlovid COVID-19 medication for cancer patients
Cancer patients with COVID-19 may receive the Paxlovid COVID-19 drug. Paxlovid prevents COVID-19 from multiplying in the infected person’s body. Medication should be started as soon as possible after the onset of symptoms, and, at the latest, within 5 days.
