Coming in for an appointment when you are ill means that 100 other people will have to cancel theirs. In the worst-case scenario, you may infect your doctor, causing them to stay at home for two weeks, meaning that another 300 patients will have to have their appointments cancelled.
The focus of Patient Safety Day this year is on the safety of health workers. To show the appreciation and respect of medical personnel, orange balloons are displayed in the foyers of East Tallinn Central Hospital.
The East Tallinn Central Hospital Ear-Nose-Throat Centre, which was located at Ravi street for 80 years, has now moved from its former location and today opened its new rooms in the hospital’s Magdaleena unit.
The amount raised at the initiative of the Estonian Maternity Hospital Support Foundation will be used to deliver special CTG monitors to maternity hospitals in Tallinn for monitoring the health indicators of mothers and children.
