“Hudson Regional Hospital developed our testing system to assure that the community gets the most benefit from our medical staff and the limited number of testing kits,” says Dr. Nizar Kifaieh, President and CEO of Hudson Regional Hospital. “We will provide regular updates throughout the Covid-19 crisis and we expect to expand and improve this program as instant tests become available in greater quantities.”
The tests are part of the Hospital’s extensive Covid-19 response program to prevent, diagnose and treat Covid-19, both inside the hospital and in the surrounding community, which includes constant direct contact with The New Jersey State Department of Health and the Centers on the most up-to-the-minute information and care procedures for residents of Secaucus and the greater Hudson and Bergen County area.
Additional Hospital procedures in place include:
- Internal practices and protocols are in place to care for prospective COVID-19 patients, and ensure their best outcomes;
- The hospital has re-enforced internal processes that prevent infection within the hospital itself, including twice-daily employee screenings, to respond to all non-virus regional healthcare needs in a safe environment;
“Concerns of the spread and treatment of COVID-19, the coronavirus, have disrupted many lives already and as a community, we need to be vigilant about prevention practices in order to reduce the severity of what now qualifies as a pandemic,” said Dr. Nizar Kifaieh,. “We are grateful for the partnership we share with Mayor Gonnelli and the Town of Secaucus and to the State Department of Health and the CDC for providing us with the resources needed to help our community through this health emergency.”
