The Buda Health Center is one of the leading private institutions of Budapest offering its patients personalized comprehensive health care.


Patient safety protocol at Buda Health Center

At our Institute, we fully comply with the current regulations in force and implement several protective measures against COVID-19.

Hospital care for COVID-19 infected patients is provided exclusively in the hermetically sealed part of the National Center for Spinal Disorders (OGK), which operates as our specialist hospital. Private patients arriving at our Királyhágó street clinic are received and cared for in a completely separate manner from thei patients arriving at OGK.

We do not accept COVID-19 infected patients at our Váci street or Nagy Jenő street clinic, nor do we provide hospital care at these sites.

Mask use
All specialists and employees of the Institute wear masks while working. Mask use is also mandatory for our esteemed patients.
Patients entering the building undergo a pre-screening where body temperature measurements, data reconciliation and hand disinfection take place. The reception service will only allow further entry into the building if the data show negative results. Relatives may enter the Institute only if the patient is a minor or unable to get around or take care of the administrative tasks due to limited mobility or other reasons. In this case, only one extra person can be admitted.
Only patients who are 10 minutes prior to their appointment will be able to enter the building.

Hand disinfection
We have installed hand sanitizers at several parts of the building, which can be used quickly and easily.
Air disinfection devices
Air disinfection is an essential extra step in effective infection control if we want to comply with a high quality hygiene protocol. Air disinfection devices (2 i-air pro and 20 plasma technology devices) are located at strategic parts in the Buda Health Center. These can be found in the waiting rooms and in the intensive care unit, as well as in the high-risk specialist practices that are part of the procedure such as otolaryngology or dentistry. The devices are also used in surgical practices.

Disinfection robot
The UVC light emitted by the disinfection robot triggers a photochemical reaction, breaking down the RNA and DNA of microorganisms. The sites of surgical procedures can be cleaned of various bacteria, viruses, yeasts or molds without the further use of chemicals or toxic compounds.

Patient safety protocol

We consider the safety of our patients and our professionals to be of the utmost importance, therefore, in accordance with the current regulations in force, we implement several protective measures against COVID-19 in our Institute, which you can read about in detail HERE. A negative PCR test is required for oral and other body cavity examinations or interventions if the patient had a positive PCR test in the last 3 weeks prior to the test.

The high level of interest in coronavirus testing has proportionally increased the workload of our telephone customer service. In order to improve our service, we provide a dedicated telephone line for corona virus test appointments: +36 1 999-1727
At the above telephone number - on weekdays between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. - our colleagues only book appointments for coronavirus testing.
