Management of suspected COVID-19 case

If a guest has symptoms compatible with the COVID-19 infection, the following apply:

1. The OWNER (MANOLIS DOMENICOS) contacts EODY IMMEDIATELY at +30 210 5212054 or the special four-digit number 1135 for the medical evaluation of the case. YOU MUST NOT CALL ANY DOCTOR OR VISIT A MEDICAL CENTER ON YOUR OWN.

2. If the patient is in urgent need of hospitalization, that is he/ she presents with a severe clinical picture, he/ she is transferred to the local health unit as a suspected COVID-19 case. If it is not possible to handle a COVID-19 case at the health infrastructure of the area, there must be a provision for transporting the patient (“EKAB” National Emergency Aid Centre, water ambulance, air ambulance) to the nearest health unit that can cope with it.

3. If the patient has a mild clinical picture, a sample for laboratory confirmation of COVID-19 is taken by the physician.

4. If the case is assessed as possible COVID-19 by the examining physician, the OWNER (MANOLIS DOMENICOS) contacts EODY IMMEDIATELY at +30 210 5212054 or the special four-digit number 1135 (24 hours a day) to report a suspected case and take instructions for dealing with it.

5. The patient with a mild clinical picture remains in his/ her room until the results of the laboratory test are announced.

6. During the above waiting period, we do not enter the patient’s room, as long as there is no significant reason. If necessary, only a member of the accommodation is advised to deal exclusively with the possible case.

7. The establishment physician and the staff that will enter the room of the suspected or later confirmed case must use high-protection personal protective equipment (masks, goggles, waterproof disposable robes). The same goes for the crew that will take over the cleaning of a COVID-19 patient’s room.

8. If confirmed as a COVID-19 case, the patient is transferred to the special quarantine hotel and later to a health facility that will accommodate patients with COVID-19 if the patient needs treatment. If not confirmed as a COVID-19 case, the patient is treated at the hotel with the instructions of the treating physician.

9. The patient is transported with a simple surgical mask and private means of transport.

10. If there is a companion of the patient (e.g. spouse) who wishes to stay by and take care of the patient, the companion should be given a simple surgical mask and advised to wash his/ her hands every time he/ she comes in contact with secretions of the patient (e.g. saliva) and definitely before the companion touches his/ her face or eats or drinks.

11. The patient’s contact details must always be recorded if consent is required for interventions when the patient is not able to communicate.

12. Used protective equipment (simple disposable surgical mask, gloves) should be discarded in a container and never used again.

13. After disposing the protective equipment, hands should be thoroughly washed with soap and water. It should be stressed that the use of gloves does not replace hand washing, which is a very important means of prevention.
