The Royal Melbourne Hospital (RMH) is now coming into its third week without any healthcare worker infections. While we are very pleased with this, we know it is important to continue to understand why they occurred and what we can do to minimise the likelihood of future infections. Some of our staff have come together to reflect on what we have learnt so far in a new pre-print journal article.
The Royal Melbourne Hospital’s Royal Park campus is a designated rehabilitation and aged care facility; and as such we have had to make changes as we continue to adapt to the rapidly evolving nature of COVID-19.
The Parkville electronic medical record (EMR) is now live and being used by the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Royal Women’s Hospital, Royal Melbourne and Royal Children’s Hospital to support the delivery of clinical care.
