How Gleneagles, Pantai, Prince Court Keep You Safe

The network of hospitals under IHH Healthcare has been adhering to an extensive Covid-19 preparedness and safety plan to ensure everyone is well-protected.

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 25 – IHH Healthcare’s hospital network comprising Gleneagles Hospitals, Pantai Hospitals, and Prince Court Medical Centre has implemented safety measures to protect patients and staff amid the Covid-19 epidemic.

IHH Healthcare said an extensive preparedness and safety plan for its network of 16 hospitals in Malaysia, which was developed in January by a multidisciplinary team of consultants and the management team, has been instrumental in the early detection of Covid-19 cases at its hospitals.

The plan entails screening and triaging at the hospitals’ designated entrances, practicing proper hand hygiene, providing personal protection equipment for staff and regular cleaning at high-touch areas, such as elevators, escalators, door handles and safety railings to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

IHH Healthcare said its trained medical staff are equipped with personal protective equipment (PPE), such as face masks, disposable gloves, head gear, eye protection, isolation gowns and safety footwear.

Additional precautionary measures in the hospitals include the provision of hand sanitiser at entrances of hospitals, medical wards and emergency departments, and regular disinfection of offices and equipment.

“As a health care provider, the safety and well-being of our patients and staff is our highest priority. Patients can continue with their existing care plans at Gleneagles Hospitals, Pantai Hospitals and Prince Court Medical Centre knowing that they are in a safe environment,” said Jean-François Naa, chief executive officer of IHH Healthcare’s Malaysian Operations Division.

“The team of nurses, doctors, clinical staff and non-clinical staff are working tirelessly to ensure our patients and staff are well-protected in the emergency rooms, wards and other areas at our hospitals. These are tough times. However, they are shouldering the duty of being our courageous frontliners, keeping the hospital safe for our patients.”

At Gleneagles Hospitals, Pantai Hospitals and Prince Court Medical Centre, all visitors are required to declare their health status via an online check-in platform for efficient contact tracing.

As a value-added service, Gleneagles and Pantai Hospitals have also launched eHealth to help patients who are unable to visit its hospitals. eHealth is an easy-to-use, private and secure online platform that connects patients to top specialists of their choice from the comfort of their home.

“We acknowledge that the Covid-19 situation is still evolving, and we are prepared for the long run. We will continue to enhance our preparedness and safety Plan to keep our patients and staff safe.

“I thank our doctors, nurses and frontliners at Gleneagles Hospitals, Pantai Hospitals and Prince Court Medical Centre for their tireless efforts during this pandemic,” Naa said.
