Given the deteriorating pandemic situation in Slovakia, several hospitals have changed their entry conditions.
They are following the regulation issued by the Health Ministry in early September, but they have room to adapt some of the measures to their own needs and capacities.
Generally, fully vaccinated people have easier access to hospitals. Yet, there are many situations when they need to have a negative Covid test as well. In most cases, a PCR test, which usually has to be paid for from one's own pocket, is required. Generally, test results cannot be more than 72 hours old.
If hospitals accept antigen tests, these do not have to be older than 48 hours.
The Sme daily addressed 43 hospitals across Slovakia and compiled a list of entry conditions including:
- Entry to hospital
- Entry to outpatient departments
- Accompanying persons
- Father present at birth
- Visits to hospitals
- Treatment of urgent cases
