7:20 SLOVAKIA – Every morning, the press beeps on a mobile with the latest Covid-19 statistics. Every morning, not only the number of infections, the number of deaths, but also the number of hospitalizations in hospitals will increase.

The head of the hospital, Jiří Vlček, denies any mistake. The doctors told him that they had followed exactly the established procedures for covid patients at the ICU. “Of course, situations arise, not only in our country, when we disconnect the patient from the ventilator. It is certainly not because the ventilator needs someone else, but because with regard to the patient’s health and his prognosis, there is no longer staying on the device. effect, “said Vlček.
He also stressed that in these cases the consent of the family must be given and that detailed medical documentation is also available. This explains that there is no point in extending the time the patient is connected to the ventilator.
