A lot of hospitals and clinics, especially those located within Metro Manila, are quickly getting filled up with patients following the steep rise of COVID-19 cases in the Philippines after the holiday season.
Aside from the threat of the Omicron COVID-19 variant, the flu season has caused a lot of individuals to suffer from high fever, runny nose, dry cough, and other symptoms. This has led a lot of healthcare facilities being overwhelmed with patients, where some sick individuals have no choice but to seek treatment at home.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the home care option for individuals who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 depends on three factors: the clinical evaluation of the patient, evaluation of the home setting, and ability to monitor the clinical evolution of a person with at home.
Unfortunately, not everyone knows how to take care of the sick at home since they lack the equipment or skills to do so. Thankfully, these establishments offer private nursing services within the comforts of your own home.
