What if there are other patients with suspected coronavirus in our hospital? Will they pose a risk to me? All testing of suspected coronavirus cases is carried out in line with strict regulations in each hospital. All suspected cases are kept in isolation, away from public areas of the hospital and returned home also in isolation. Any equipment that comes into contact with suspected cases is thoroughly cleaned as appropriate. Patients and their families can be reassured that their safety is a top priority and are encouraged to attend all appointments as usual.
