Following the directives of the Prime Minister and the Chief Minister of NCT towards ensuring adequate safety and wellbeing of Healthcare Workers (HCW’s) and other Patients, Max Healthcare has announced that it intends to proactively test its entire Healthcare workforce of 18000 people and admitted patients at its facilities.
In addition, going forward, Max healthcare has also announced its intention to test all patients at admission itself. This process has now been made possible since relaxation of testing norms by ICMR to cover such individuals.
This process may lead to surfacing of some infected personnel/patients who otherwise have been asymptomatic but potentially infectious. It intends to deal with such situations in strict compliance of extant regulations and its internal protocols.
