COVID-19 in Obstetric Unit - Challenges and Lessons Learnt in Low Resource Settings

Kiran Guleria, Shalini Rajaram, AG Radhika, Amita Suneja

An obstetric patient turning COVID positive during her stay in a non-COVID hospital throws multiple challenges to administration. These can be the issues of space and need for creating separate infrastructure within the facility for COVID/ COVID suspect patients or issues of adequate supplies of personal protection equipment or issues of staff including their health, shortage, training, testing, quarantine and duty resumption. The administration needs to strategize and make policies best suited to their institution in order to maintain essential public services without compromising the safety of health care workers.
