Memfys Hospital has taken extra precautions to ensure the safety of patients, visitors, and its staff in light of the COVID -19 pandemic. All patients, visitors and staff are required to wear face masks, to wash their hands at the gate and will have their temperature checked before entering the premises. Anyone failing to comply with this will not be granted admission to the hospital.
Patients and their companion seeking admission to the hospital are required to undergo a COVID - 19 test before being admitted.
The Medical Team reserves the right to refuse admission to the premises to anyone suspected of having COVID - 19 to protect the safety and wellbeing of other patients and staff. However, persons with COVID - 19 may still be able to access treatment if necessary steps and precautions have been taken to guarantee the safety of patients and staff. The Medical Team reserves the right to exercise their discretion in such cases as Memfys Hospital is not a COVID- 19 designated Treatment Centre.
As well as the measures outlined above, Memfys Hospital has taken extra precautions to prevent the spread of COVID -19 including more frequent cleaning, cleaning with the WHO recommended level of disinfectants to kill the virus, providing staff with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and reducing the number of patients in each of the wards.
The most common symptoms of COVID - 19 are a new continuous cough or a high temperature (37.8 degrees or over). However, not all individuals with the virus exhibit symptoms. Please see the World Health Organisation Website and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control Website for more information on COVID - 19 and what to do if you suspect you have the Virus.
Please call Memfys Hospital if you require assistance and please DO NOT present yourself to the hospital if you suspect you have the virus without first speaking on the phone to a qualified member of Memfys staff who will advise you on what to do.
 Patient Companions - Memfys hospital allows for one patient companion who is a close relative or friend to stay with the patient at all times.
