Epidemic-related procedures at municipal hospitals

Due to the epidemic situation in establishments managed by the City, special procedure for admitting patients for surgeries have been introduced. All patients waiting for elective surgeries are obliged to take part in an epidemic-related medical interview and have a swab collected, about one day before the surgical procedure. While waiting for the results of tests for COVID-19, they must be isolated until they are admitted to hospital.

The procedures for admitting to hospital emergency departments also require that every person seeking treatment is subject to examination for coronavirus (swab and medical interview). Patients with symptoms of SARS-CoV-2 infection are referred to entities providing Level 2 hospital services with beds for COVID-19 patients. Municipal hospitals currently provide Level 1 hospital services, and have isolation rooms for patients with suspected COVID-19 infection.

Additional equipment and personal protective equipment

From the onset of the COVID-19 epidemic, Warsaw allocated over PLN 30 million  for the purchase of medical devices and equipment, out of which PLN 7.6 million was taken from the city’s crisis reserve.

This way we are protecting the medical staff working at municipal hospitals and outpatient clinics by providing equipment used for combating coronavirus.

So far, we have purchased:

  • 30 ICU beds (consisting of respirators, patient monitors, infusion pump units, beds with pressure-reducing mattresses, and medical aspirators),

  • 6 renal replacement therapy devices,

  • 10 decontamination devices (biological decontamination)

The purchased medical equipment and devices have been used in Solec, Bielański and Wolski Municipal Hospitals since July.

Moreover, we allocated funds for the purchase of personal protective equipment, including

  • over 1 million surgical masks, half-masks, protective shields and goggles,

  • over 1.6 million disposable nitrile gloves,

  • over 0.5 million medical coats,

  • 45 000 protective suits and over 260 000 safety boot & shoe covers, and head covers, and over 130 000 litres of hand and surface disinfectants.

We are purchasing coronavirus tests

Warsaw has allocated over PLN 3 million for the purchase of coronavirus tests for the staff and residents of Municipal Nursing Homes (or entities run for the City) and the Warsaw Treatment & Care Centre (Stołeczne Centrum Opiekuńczo-Lecznicze - SCOL).

Under the agreements made by the City, privately-owned laboratories have performed over 4 000 diagnostic tests for the City. The greatest number of tests were performed among the staff and residents of Nursing Homes and the staff and patients of treatment & care centres (SCOL). We have recently made another agreement for the performance of further 6 000 diagnostic tests for COVID-19.

 

Tourist Information Centres is open again

Both Tourist Information Centres (at the Palace of Culture and Science and Koneser at Ząbkowska Street) are open again. The employees are also available to respond to any inquiries from tourists by phone (503 033 720) or through e-mail (info@go2warsaw.pl) between 9.00 a.m. and 5.00 p.m.

The relevant information was placed at the displays of both Tourist Information Centres, at the www.go2warsaw.pl (link https://warsawtour.pl/) website and the city's social media profiles.

 

Coronavirus – important information!

We are changing the working procedures of the City of Warsaw and its subordinate institutions. Our goal is to help prevent the spreading of coronavirus and to ensure the continuity of the city's services and administration. We also would like to guarantee reliable information and care for all the city's users.

As far as the office's work procedures are concerned, we cancelled regular meetings, introduced teleworking, teleconferences, videoconferences. We also temporarily suspended certain non-obligatory tasks, directing our employees to priority tasks.

We urge the residents not to come to the office with non-pressing matters.

Remember that many official matters can be handled via electronic means, through the trusted profile (e-Puap). Electronic documents signed with a trusted profile are valid official documents. This channel can be used to submit official letters and applications to the office.

Some matters can be resolved with a simple email. From Monday on new recruitment rules for kindergartens and first forms of primary schools apply – documents can be sent via electronic means. Due to the situation, the office is introducing new procedures providing more options of obtaining information and resolving matters through the phone.

If a matter is not urgent or its deadline is instructional in nature, leave it for a later date. If you do have urgent business at the office, please book a date via the system rezerwacje.um.warszawa.pl
