Conditions for Covid patients to be treated at Pondok Gede Hajj Dormitory

Director General of Health Services at the Ministry of Health Abdul Kadir said Covid-19 patients must first fill out the National Integrated Referral Information System (Sisrutenas) application to get treatment at Pondok Gede Hajj Dormitory, Jakarta.

This application is a condition that must be fulfilled by patients before receiving treatment at the facility.

“This Sisrutenas is filled out by the nearest hospital or health center from the patient’s residence,” said Abdul Kadir in a written statement, Tuesday (13/7).

He said this application is related to the referrals and history of patients who have been registered by the Puskesmas.

“So that when referred here (Hajj Dormitory) they can get the appropriate treatment,” said Abdul Kadir.
