ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE: To explore the application value of mobile cabin hospitals in combating COVID-19 outbreak. METHODS: The basic clinical data, the number of admission, CT scan, novel coronavirus nucleic acid testing results were collected and calculated. The operational elements of running this temporary hospital were reviewed from its construction to closing. RESULTS: Wuhan Hanyang Mobile Cabin Hospital was transformed from Hall B1 of Wuhan International Expo Center. With a total of 930 beds in this temporary hospital, 1,028 patients were admitted, among them, 598 patients were cured, and 430 patients were transferred to designated hospitals in the special period. Totally, 1,206 mobile CT scan were conducted. 2,295 novel coronavirus nucleic acid tests were performed, among which, 1,032 tests showed two continuous negative results, 924 tests with one negative, while 302 tests with positive result (13.16%). No nosocomial infection of working staff was found due to the conduction of multiple measures. The patients' livelihoods were well safeguarded in mobile cabin hospitals. CONCLUSION: The mobile cabin hospital compulsory quarantine for mild patients can serve as an alternative method to combat COVID-19.

ABSTRACT

Novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) emerged in Wuhan in December 2019, has spread in many countries affected people globally. In response to the economic requirement of the nation and meet the need of patient's, a momentous event was going back to work step by step as fighting against COVID-19. Safety in clinical work is of priority as elective surgery in the department of surgery progressing. We used checklists based on our experiences on COVID-19 control and reality of clinical work from February to March in the West China Hospital, involving events of screening patient, chaperonage, and healthcare workers. Checklist summarized the actual clinical nursing work and management practices, hope to provide a reference for the order of surgery during the epidemic prevention and control, and standardize the clinical nursing work of surgery during pandemic.

ABSTRACT

The current outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has been defined as a pandemic by the World Health Organization. We aimed to evaluate the clinical features and virological course of non-severe COVID-19 patients with or without symptoms who were admitted to a Chinese cabin hospital. In this retrospective single center study, we reviewed 252 laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 patients treated at one temporary cabin hospital in Wuhan, China. Demographic, clinical, serial chest computed tomography (CT), and serial viral test data were compared between asymptomatic and symptomatic patients. The association between clinical features and symptomatic status or patient referral status was analyzed. Among all 252 patients, 74 (29.4%) were asymptomatic and 138 (54.76%) had more than two family members who developed COVID-19. The probability for family clustering was similar between asymptomatic and symptomatic patients (59.70 vs. 61.64%, P = 0.79). Asymptomatic patients and symptomatic patients were equally likely to reach a virus-free state during their stay at the cabin hospital (93.15 vs. 86.44%, P = 0.13). The initial chest CT screening showed that 81 (32.1%) patients had no visible pneumonia, 52 (20.6%) had unilateral pneumonia, and 119 (47.2%) had bilateral pneumonia. Symptomatic patients had a higher chance to have bilateral pneumonia (P < 0.0001) and were less likely to show improvement on the follow-up CT scan (P = 0.0002). In total, 69 (27.4%) patients were referred to the designated hospital and only 23 (9.1%) patients were referred due to the progression of pneumonia. Non-severe COVID-19 patients can transmit the disease regardless of their symptomatic status. It is highly recommended that asymptomatic patients be identified and quarantined to eliminate the transmission of COVID-19.
