A Practical Handbook for Infection Control in Makeshift Hospitals: Experience from Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID–19) Pandemic

About the eBook

Makeshift Hospital (Square cabin hospital in Chinese), is a rapidly converted large space, makeshift shelter-like hospital. A number of Makeshift hospitals have been converted and established in Wuhan, Hubei Province, in order to provide care for the rapidly increasing patient population infected with coronavirus caused by the 2019–nCoV. As an innovative approach to deal with large patient populations during the pandemic, Makeshift hospitals became the major centralized facility to receive and treat confirmed cases with diagnosis of 2019–nCoV infection and mild pneumonia symptoms.

This practical handbook is applicable for the management of large-scale Makeshift hospitals during the pandemic of COVID–19. It is based on the on-site practice and experience in Wuhan Makeshift Hospitals, and is designed to prepare others regarding health risk provider protections and patient safety. The authors have developed measures and countermeasures including, but not limited to, functional zoning, hygienic and health facilities, personal protection, and management systems, as well as, technical guidance for stakeholders in both the building and management of large-scale Makeshift hospitals as part of pandemic control strategy. The intrinsic value of this handbook is that the authors offer practical advice according to cases encountered in the field.
