With the number of COVID-19 cases increasing with each passing day, finding a bed in a hospital for a COVID-19 patient in Hyderabad is often a daunting task. To accommodate patients with mild symptoms, several hospitals are now joining hands with popular hotels. While the rooms in the hotels are used for patients to stay in, the hospital will provide the needed medical care to the patients. The food and the dietary needs of the patient will be addressed by the hotel.
While the live dashboard set up by the government often shows beds are available in the hospitals, when you reach out to the hospital, they often deny the availability of beds. This makes it a tedious process to find a bed for someone who has tested positive for the virus. With hospitals collaborating with hotels, more than 1,000 beds are now available across Hyderabad for COVID-19 patients. This facility is useful for those who want to stay away from their family while they recover from COVID-19.
Patients will have to reach out to the concerned hospital to avail this facility. At the hospital, a preliminary screening test will be done to decide whether a patient is asymptomatic or has mild symptoms. Those with lower oxygen saturation levels and severe symptoms will be given admission in the hospital. Only those with no symptoms or mild symptoms will be given admission in the hotels.
All hospitals provide patients with three meals a day and a doctor and a nurse will be available for anything that is required. Depending on the hotel, some will provide oxygen concentrators, some provide video consultation with the doctor.
