With the “e-twin” System Patients of COVID-19 can Talk to Their Loved Ones from Hospital
The Philippine General Hospital (PGH) uses the “e-twin” system in their patients with coronavirus disease (COVID-19) to talk to their loved ones and to alleviate the pain caused by disease resistance.
Tthe Manila-based hospital at PGH, patients with COVID-19 are inevitably sad because they cannot accommodate guests, even relatives.
As a result, the doctor’s Homer Co, the hospital’s coordinator for health operations, launched the “e-dual” where patients could video call their loved ones.
The hospital’s social welfare officers first called on patients’ loved ones to schedule a video call.
Patients have up to 40 minutes to talk with their loved ones.
The plastic covers the laptop and disinfects it with alcohol after the video call.
According to De Asis, family support is a great help to patients in order to also protect their mental health and accelerate recovery.
It is also a way for families to see their patient’s condition and reduce their anxiety.
PGH is one of the Department of Health‘s designated COVID-19 referral centers, including the Jose M. Rodriguez Memorial Hospital in Caloocan City and the Lung Center of the Philippines in Quezon City.
