A new temporary hospital has been set up in London to help cope with the rise in demand from coronavirus, the health and social secretary has announced. The NHS Nightingale Hospital will be located in the ExCel centre in Canning Town, East London to house a total of 4,000 patients in need of critical care.
Run with help from the military and NHS clinicians, the new hospital will consist of two 2,000-bed wards - but initially it will hold 500 beds until services can be expanded.
The hospital will essentially become a large critical care unit where Covid-19 patients with the most complex needs will be treated. As such it will be stocked with intensive care equipment such as ventilators and oxygen, and it is expected to be up and running by next week.
Facing Covid-19, nurses have played an extremely important role. Journal of Nursing is an international, peer reviewed, scientific journal that seeks to promote the development and exchange of knowledge that is directly relevant to all spheres of nursing practice. Journal content includes clinical topics, integrative or systematic literature reviews, research, and practice improvement initiatives that provide nurses globally with implications for translation of new knowledge into practice.
The journal welcomes studies that aim to evaluate and understand complex health care interventions and health policies and which employ the most rigorous designs and methods appropriate for the research question of interest. We sincerely welcome everyone submit the papers to contribute!
