“We Don’t Have a Medical Supply Shortage at the Moment”

Aydın told that they don’t wish patients to apply hospitals except for emergencies because of the pandemic, and noted:

“As the hospital management, we don’t prefer patients, except emergency patients and patients with regular follow-ups, to apply hospitals for we wish to protect them and their relatives from the pandemic.


Due to this reason, we pushed back patient appointments, except cancer patients’ appointments, that are not urgent or not require immediate treatment. At this stage, there are some rumors about our University’s hospital. We don’t have a medical supply shortage at the moment.


Ministry of Health is coordinately providing these supplies to us however, we need to plan the coming days. At this stage, we prefer to use our medical supply stocks providently to save some for the future.”

“We are going to pay a visit to COVID-19 wards as well. During this visit, we will be also supporting our staff. Currently, we have physician friends who have fallen sick and staying there, we will see them too,” he added.
