A lot has happened. As we speak, we’re living through a pandemic that’s currently harming and even taking away lives all over the world. While some of us might be dealing with sorrow, the rest of us remain in our homes hoping for the best. However, have you had the time to think about those that are working without any rest? Whether it be the doctors in Hope Island’s medical centres or evenSpringwood’s medical centres, today we have medical practitioners standing at the fence of a life-threatening disease, fighting for us as we sit comfortably within our homes. They put their lives at risk every day, fighting to cure a disease that currently has no cure, with quite a few of them even sacrificing their lives to save every patient that comes their way. To truly display our respect and love for our doctors, we speak of the importance of medical care, especially during recent times.
No one predicts a national emergency. Similarly, no one predicts a pandemic. Even though health care services all around the world are currently panicking whilst trying to keep up with everything that has been happening, it’s no surprise that the world is not equipped with enough PPE to ensure the safety of both the doctor and the patient. Primary care services, during the time of a pandemic, work together with volunteers, migrant and community health centres, etc. to provide an infrastructure for delivering immunizations and treatments for complications.
Since the pandemic has affected more than a million people worldwide, there is an incessant need for more staff, medicinal drugs, supplies and protective gear. Medical personnel are managing to keep up with this by treating all critical cases first and then moving onto cases that are relatively mild or close to cured. Even though it’s getting extremely difficult to set the boundaries for what exactly is considered to be ‘crucial’ and what isn’t, all doctors are working hard with the equipment available to try to avoid as many repercussions as physically possible. At times like this, bulk billing hospitals such as Medicross are extremely beneficial since they allow treatment to be followed through without worrying about the potential costs in a moment of distress. They’re using their bulk billing services and allied health services for the better. Book an appointment and get yourself checked and cured as soon as possible, today.
In today’s time, several doctors and nurses are working overtime. Some of the doctors are even working for days on end, without a break. While our biggest problem is sleeping 8-10 hours a day and wondering which show we should watch next, our doctors are struggling to catch a blink of sleep during these hours. It’s easy to sit within the four walls of a home and complain about how inconvenient a lockdown can be, but one must consider how exhausting the duty of a doctor must be during this time. All doctors today are working with the sole purpose of ending this pandemic and they’re doing it for days, even weeks on end.
Home care is gaining a slow but rising importance as medical centres run out of space to accommodate patients on hospital beds. Self-quarantine in modern times is growing to be the new normal. Until and unless a permanent cure of the COVID-19 is not discovered, it will not be safe to move out of one’s home. Today, any and every doctor holds only one piece of advice: “If we can stay at work for you, you can stay at home for us.”
Go easy on your healthcare; stay home, stay safe.
