Nursing support in the community
13 Apr 2022
As the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases soared to new heights, teachers and students from the Bachelor of Nursing (Hons) programme of the School of Continuing Education contributed their expertise to help relieve the pressure on the frontline medical staff.
While some are assisting staff to administer vaccinations and collect specimens, others are supporting the professional nursing staff in the Kowloon Bay Choi Wing Road Community Isolation Facility as well as the Kai Tak Holding Centre, and they are helping them provide daily care to the resident elders.
At the same time, a call centre was set up on campus to support the Hospital Authority's hotline for infected people pending admission to isolation facilities. Staff and students from the Nursing programme are helping to answer their enquiries, and they are also easing their worries with professional advice.
