The Obstetrics Third Department of the Chongqing Health Center for Women and Children (CQHCWC), located in Southwest China's Chongqing, held an emergency COVID-19 safety drill on March 16.

Under the leadership of the head of the department and the head nurse, the epidemic prevention and control team held many discussions and formulated detailed plans before the drill, clarifying specific requirements, assigning roles, and arranging for relevant personnel from the department to observe and study the process.

The drill featured a scenario where an expectant mother living in the epidemic control area of Chongqing needed to be sent to the delivery room right away. She was in possession of a negative nucleic acid test result and a green health code, but the code turned red during her admission to the hospital.

During the drill, all staff members performed well, resulting in the expected outcome.

Following the drill, Chen Gongli, director of the Obstetrics Third Department, stressed that all medical workers should learn from the drill and ensure the safety of patients while also protecting themselves.

Chen also said that the department will continue to strengthen training and drills, further refine epidemic prevention and control procedures, improve emergency response plans, and enhance detailed management.

The drill is believed to have strengthened collaboration between departments, improved the emergency handling capabilities of medical workers, and laid a solid foundation for ensuring the safety of mothers and babies.
