Şükrü Yorulmaz, Head of Disaster Department of Emergency Health Services of the Ministry of Health, said: “As you know, there was a major disaster in Derna, Libya. With the instructions of our Minister of Health, we quickly moved to the region with our UMKE and UMKE Attack teams. We quickly set up a field hospital.
Again, we made a scene assessment with our teams and directed our search and rescue teams to the appropriate place. We also provide healthcare support to other search and rescue teams in the field. We have intervened in many patients in our hospital here.
There are many injured people coming in. Since very serious search and rescue operations are being carried out and search and rescue teams are also exposed to secondary trauma, we constantly examined trauma patients throughout the day. From time to time, locals with chronic diseases also apply to us. Here again, our experienced specialist doctors make the first intervention and organize the necessary evaluations and treatments.”
