Why Polyclinic Ribnjak?
The pandemic of the SARS CoV-2 virus and the disease it causes, COVID-19, which has paralyzed the entire world, has led to the restriction or even complete cessation of various activities, events and services. Unfortunately, one of the things that the pandemic has been most affected by is the health system, both locally and globally.
Our institution, specializing in orthopedics, traumatology, sports diagnostics, and plastic and aesthetic surgery, shows responsibility in these times through educating the population about why this virus is dangerous and measures that can be taken in the context of limiting its spread, but also through equipment the institution itself and compliance with all hygienic and epidemiological measures in the daily work of the Polyclinic, all in order to minimize the risk of potential infection of employees and patients.
Why is the SARS CoV-2 virus so dangerous? The answer lies in its infectivity. Namely, the measures that are being adopted and the kind of panic that is created in the media about the large number of new cases of infection are not the result of concerns about the potentially large number of deaths caused by the virus, but due to the fact that the virus spreads extremely fast and practically without major difficulties.
Although most people in COVID-19 will recover with little or no symptoms (new studies indicate that the proportion of such patients is just over 90%), the rest of the people will need hospitalization and more extensive medical intervention, while a certain percentage of the most vulnerable will unfortunately lose the battle for life. The measures are aimed at infecting as few people as possible with the virus.
The health care system under such a load can only function for a limited time, and as a result the population suffering from other diseases will suffer – from the most severe, oncological and chronic patients, whose condition must be constantly monitored, to the population suffering from various diseases that may not directly endanger their lives, but they significantly disrupt their quality of life, including orthopedic patients.
