The Ministry of Health has defined rules and funds so that states and municipalities can implement field hospitals in cities. The orientation is that the units are configured to serve patients with respiratory symptoms of low and medium complexity, that function as clinical support for permanent hospital units that have an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and are defined as a reference for the treatment of COVID-19.
“The Ministry of Health informs that the proportion of 10 pulmonary ventilatory support beds should be used for every 40 beds of clinical hospitalization in the Hospital of Campanha. However, the number of beds in each temporary hospital can vary according to their size, ”explained Adriana Teixeira, director of the Department of Hospital, Home and Emergency Care (DAHU / MS).
