Southern Philippines
Description The worldwide fight against COVID-19 is a battle in progress. As long as its antidote is still unknown to man, each country is left to formulate its strategy to combat the pandemic. In the Philippines, designated COVID-19 hospitals are tasked to receive admissions of positive cases including the possible ones. But how should these designated hospitals effectively respond to the crisis? This qualitative case study identified the best practices of a COVID-19 designated hospital in Southern Philippines. The results show the following initiatives of the facility: provision of material support for frontliners, efficient donations management, calibration of medical personnel on proper triaging, designating Southern Philippines Medical Center as the COVID-19 hospital in Davao City, regular COVID-testing of the medical frontliners, the conduct of free debriefing for medical frontliners, facility expansion, and seamless collaboration between law enforcement, investigators, and health authorities. A government report showed that this facility is effective in managing COVID-19 cases. It is therefore imperative that other designated hospitals in the country should replicate the best practices in their facility.
