Dünya Sağlık Örgütü (DSÖ) 12 Mart 2020'de Koronavirüs Hastalığı 2019 (COVID -19) salgınını pandemi ilan etti. Bu durum tüm ülkeleri enfeksiyonu tespit etme ve yayılmasını kontrol altına alma stratejilerini belirlemeleri konusunda harekete geçirdi. Toplum için enfeksiyon kontrol önlemleri alınırken, sağlık merkezlerinde hem hastaların hem de sağlık çalışanlarının (SHÇ) hayatını güvence altına almada bu önlemlerin hayati rolü fark edildi, her hastane ihtiyaçları ve kapasitelerine göre enfeksiyon kontrol önlemleri uygulamaya başladı. Bu yazıda COVID-19 salgınını kontrol altına almak için bir pediatri kliniğinde yürütülen SHÇ'nin eğitimi, departmanların hazırlığı, personel istihdamının yeniden düzenlenmesi, gözetim ve değişen ihtiyaçları karşılamak için hastane idaresi ile günlük toplantılar ve kararlar alınması dahil enfeksiyon kontrol önlemleri anlatıldı. COVID-19 pandemisinin dinamik süreci sırasında salgının kontrolü için ihtiyaçların zamanında belirlenip ve karşılanmasının önemli olduğu görüldü.
Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID -19) outbreak was announced as a pandemic by World Health Organization (WHO) on March 12, 2020. This caution alerted all countries to determine their strategies to detect infection and control its spread. While infection control measures were taken in community, their crucial role in health care centers to safe both patients’ and health care workers (HCW)’s life was noticed. During this pandemic each hospital begin to implement infection control measures according to their need and capacity. Here we presented infection control measures that were conducted in a pediatric clinic to control COVID-19 outbreak; including education of HCW, preparedness of departments, rearrangement of staff employment, surveillance, and daily meeting with hospital administration to meet the changing needs. Timely identification and meeting of needs is crucial for the control of the outbreak during dynamic process of COVID-19 pandemic.
