Prince Hamza Hospital Publicize The Success: Be Up to The Challenge …. Beyond The Call of Duty for COVID 19
Prince Hamza Hospital is the central treatment center for COVID patients in Jordan. Immediately upon its designation as a COVID facility by the Ministry of Health, the Prince Hamza Hospital rapidly streamlined its workflow and trained its staff to deal with the virus. Hospital administrators worked together with staff on all levels to boost the organization’s preparedness in providing effective treatments for COVID patients, while at the same time maintaining a safe environment for hospital staff. Within a short span of time, hospital administrators developed comprehensive plans for staffing, logistics, security and treatment. They also communicated regularly between staff and stakeholders to set clear roles in managing the crisis.
From March to October 2020, the hospital received and treated over 2,100 COVID-positive patients, leading Jordan’s national response to the pandemic. With its expertise in dealing with the virus, Prince Hamza Hospital has also worked to share its knowledge with stakeholders from other healthcare facilities, such as university hospitals, and public and private hospitals.
