The last three patients injured in the Colectiv Club fire that were still hospitalized at the Dr. Carol Davila Central Military Hospital were released Wednesday. The occasion was marked by the medical staff of the hospital by offering presents and good wishes for the upcoming winter holidays.
“The fact that none of the patients treated in our hospital died reflects, I believe, the level of professionalism and of the efficiency of doctors in this hospital. (…) We have two sections specialized in recovery – not in burns, but in neuromotor recovery – and we are ready. We also did recovery for patients with large burns. Previously we had as patients several pilots with large burns who recovered very well,” General Manager of the Military Hospital Assoc. Prof. Dr. Florentina Ionita Radu stated at patient discharge, in the presence of a part of the medical staff involved in providing emergency and specialized medical assistance.
Florentina Ionita-Radu said on the occasion that at Military Hospital 12 patients were initially hospitalized, five of whom were transferred to hospitals abroad: two in the Netherlands, two in the UK, and one in Austria. Subsequently, two of the patients transferred in the UK and one of the patients treated in the Netherlands got discharged and continued to receive treatment as outpatients.
Ionita-Radu also noted that the three patients discharged on Wednesday will return to the hospital to have their bandages changed. They were subject to several graft interventions and will continue to receive rehabilitation treatment.
