Far Eastern Memorial Hospital set up an inter departmental COVID-19 strain team since March, responsible for resource checking and personnel. In September, 16 intensive care units with one person and one room were prepared, and two exhaust fans were added to each ward. The air flow detection was used to confirm that the exhaust direction was correct and the environment reached micro negative pressure. In May 2021, the local epidemic broke out. Oriental Petrochemical (Taiwan), the only medical center in New Taipei, was in the epidemic storm center. The hospital quickly started a large number of high-risk infectious diseases treatment operations, planned the moving line of intensive care ward, counted the backup beds and support manpower, and dispatched instruments and equipment.

In addition to taking care of patients diagnosed in the hospital, Far Eastern Memorial Hospital also quickly opened 299 isolation wards in New Taipei within 80 hours from May 24 to 27, when the epidemic was the most severe in New Taipei City, and undertook the two largest centralized quarantine centers (Banqiao and Sanzhong) in New Taipei City, taking care of 842 people before and after; By mid June, Far Eastern Memorial Hospital had treated 1014 confirmed cases in two centralized quarantine stations, accounting for about one fifth of the confirmed cases in New Taipei City and one tenth of Taiwan.

        374C04        Integrating deficiency and reality to develop new intelligent medicine

        The test of the epidemic era is not only the energy of hospitals to receive patients, but also the relationship between doctors and patients. Under the premise that the people dare not go out, how to maintain the trust of doctors and patients and provide the medical services required by the people has become an important topic in our hospital; Fortunately, Far Eastern Memorial Hospital and far EasTone telecommunications have begun to pilot remote medical services in remote villages and outlying islands in 2020.
