CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- At around 18:00 on February 8th in Xiaogan Central Hospital, at the responsible ward of the first batch of medical team from Chongqing, a patient’s condition was changed and needed to be transferred to hospital.
Zhou Jialin, head nurse of the ward and chief nurse of Chongqing 6th People’s Hospital, immediately came to the protective clothing wearing area, and was ready to enter the ward.
To ensure the safety and stability of the transfer, Zhou Jialin, together with four colleagues, used a stretcher to lift the patient down the 5th floor by elevator, and then moved to the ambulance. Then, five people, together with the ambulance, took the patient to the nearest treatment hospital, and together they carried the patient to the 5th floor. The whole process did not exceed 10 minutes.
“Patients with disease changes cannot afford to delay. They should seize every minute and every second, but they should also be orderly busy. Zhou Jialin said that no matter how anxious, we should wear protective clothing according to the process. In the process of transfer, it is also necessary to follow the specified channel. When returning to the responsible area, you should also go through the specified channel, then through the semi polluted area, take off the protective clothing, and clean and disinfect again.
“Protective clothing is the armor for medical personnel to fight against the pneumonia. It is limited in quantity and it is a disposable item. We should cherish it more.” Zhou Jialin said that he was the head nurse. In addition to care and other work, he was also responsible for the sense of hospital work in the ward. One of the most important points was to supervise and emphasize the wearing of protective clothing by medical personnel. It was also the essential point for medical personnel not to be infected during the treatment process.
It was also because of the importance attached to protective clothing, in addition to emergency situations, Zhou Jialin always has a “special action” — draw a small “pig head”.
It turned out that when Zhou Jialin wore protective clothing for the first time, he wanted his colleagues to draw something else besides their names, and then they drew a “pig head”. Coincidentally, Zhou Jialin’s wife and son’s zodiac were all pigs.
“I laughed then, feeling like my wife and son were fighting with me.” Zhou Jialin said that at that moment, he felt that this small “pig head” was the “patron saint” sent by his family. “With the company of my family, I believe we can overcome the epidemic and achieve the victory.” (Translated by Luo Juan, Fathom Language Limited)
