Jpn J Infect Dis. 2022 Jul 29. doi: 10.7883/yoken.JJID.2022.081. Online ahead of print.
Community Treatment Centers (CTC) have been set up in South Korea to quarantine and treat COVID-19 patients with mild symptoms. Such CTCs have shown to be successful in terms of management and operation. However, recent incidences of patient deaths at CTCs have brought about concerns and the need to re-examine the administration of CTCs. The following issues include some of the problems of CTCs: failure to monitor patients, recognize emergency situations, and rapidly transfer patients to hospitals, and also the increased fatigue of medical staff. It is necessary to enhance patient safety measures at CTCs by setting up a stronger patient monitoring system, a swifter hospital transfer process and a faster response to emergency situations.
