Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital returns to “emergency mode” due to the pandemic

Posted: Saturday, July 17, 2021. 8:58 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Belize’s leading referral hospital, the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH) has suspended elective surgeries and postponed outpatient clinics as it goes back into emergency mode on Monday due to the rise in COVID-19 cases.

A statement on social media announced the change would take effect on Monday.

“This has become necessary as we ramp up our response to the rise in COVID-19 cases,” the statement said.

Elective surgeries will be put on hold until further notice; there will be NO outpatient clinics during this time, it continues.

In addition, the hospital said, “The visitors’ policy will once again be adjusted to restrict the number of persons in the facility therefore reducing instances of possible COVID-19 transmission to patients, staff and visitors.”

The KHMH has the primary unit to deal with severe forms of COVID-19 case and the most advanced intensive care unit in the country.

The number of active cases is close to 300 as of Friday with the urban sprawl of Belize City, Orange Walk and rural Toledo being of most concern at the moment.
