Coronavirus (COVID-19) update – Tuesday 2 February 2021
The latest version of Newcastle Hospitals guidelines on the management of COVID-19 in adults is now available on the coronavirus intranet site under the clinical guidance page.
These include new information about testing for COVID-19 during the Winter, when influenza may also be circulating, more explicit details about escalation of oxygen therapy, and details on treatment with tocilizumab for severely unwell patients in critical care or on the respiratory support unit at the RVI.
This guidance will be updated as often as is necessary and practicable so if you are printing out any documentation, please ensure you have the most up-to-date version.
Material management (MatMan) – full service running again at RVI
The material management (MatMan) service at the RVI is now running again as a full service after temporary measures were put in place last week.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
