To ensure the treatment mission during the holidays, managers have arranged schedules to assign people on duty in wards. Besides, the hospital also maintains an emergency team who are ready to help their counterparts in districts or rural areas. Managers will visit inpatients who must stay in the hospital.

On the occasion of Tet, Bach Mai Hospital will give gifts to inpatients, who will be served meals free-of-charge in the first three days of the year.

Mr. Khue also said that the Ministry of Health will conduct sudden inspections on emergency services at several hospitals.

The Ministry also asked hospitals to be active to cope with epidemic diseases such as flu, mumps, acute diarrhoea, hand-foot-mouth and petechial fever./.
