Routine examinations and examinations of oncology and diabetes patients and pregnant women are carried out free of charge
In accordance with the decision taken by the Near East University Board of Trustees last week, both the Near East University Hospital and Dr. Suat Günsel Kyrenia Hospital are providing free health services for patients with oncology and diabetes, and pregnant women, who are required to continue their regular check-ups and examinations in safe and hygienic conditions. In addition, it was announced that the patients who applied to the Near East University Hospital Emergency Department will benefit from the services provided free of charge. The services are also provided at the dispensaries of Güzelyurt and Gazi Famagusta, affiliated with the Near East University Hospital, in accordance with the framework of the preventive measures taken by both hospitals.

Measures taken by the Near East University Board of Trustees to protect the health of the public and health workers due to the Covid-19 outbreak;

As an institution that always cares for cancer patients whose immune system is weaker than the other patient groups, we think that the control of oncology patients should be maintained under the conditions of our university hospitals. Therefore, examination and laboratory tests of all oncology patients are provided free of charge in our hospitals.

Diabetes patients should be more careful against Covid-19 than other patient groups. For this patient group that requires special attention and care, examinations and tests are provided by our university hospitals.

During the process that we are in, mothers who are expecting a baby should continue their routine examinations and tests without interruption. For this reason and due to the importance we attach to baby health, mothers who are expecting a baby are also included in the group to be provided free service.

In the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, the “Face Shield” has been produced and distributed to the institutions in need, giving priority to the health workers working in the quarantine departments.

Specialist Dr. Koray Kadam; “All kinds of measures have been taken for Covid-19 in our hospital.”
Emergency Specialist Dr. Koray Kadam, who made statements about the measures taken for the Covid-19 outbreak at the Near East University Hospital Emergency Department, said that the entrance to the hospital is limited to 2 doors, that the health workers at both doors control the fever of everyone entering the hospital, including staff, and those who have fever are directed from the hospital to a private area reserved for Covid-19 suspect patients. Expressing that the emergency doctors examined the patient who came to the Covid-19 special area, Dr. Koray Kadam said that, according to the findings of the examination, the TRNC Ministry of Health was informed about the case and the patient with Covid-19 suspicion was transferred to the TRNC Health Ministry quarantine hospital. Expressing that the patients whose fever is found normal at the entrance to the hospital but suffering from health problems such as cough, shortness of breath, upper respiratory tract infection are required of further examinations and are transferred to the quarantine hospital, and the special area reserved for Covid-19 is cleaned and ventilated according to universal disinfection rules after each use.
