29 October 2012
   A number of the physicians working at Mina Emergency Hospital have affirmed that colossal efforts have been made to provide best medical services for pilgrims, thus complying with the directions given by the Government of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and His Royal Highness the Crown Prince, May Allah protect them. The hospital's team is sparing no effort, around the clock, to provide distinguished healthcare services for pilgrims.
The physicians pointed out that they have treated thousands of cases over the past days (most of which had to do with inflammations, catarrh, congestion, as well as abdominal diseases, diabetes and hypertension). They commended the hospital's level of readiness, in terms of the medical equipment and medicines, in addition to the availability of all health specialties, laboratories, pharmacists and highly qualified nursing staff.
Dr. Yasser Zein Al-Abedeen, who has been delegated from King Abdulaziz Hospital (Jeddah), mentioned that most cases addressed by the hospital's staff are viral cases, and that congestion and catarrh make up about 70% of the cases addressed daily at Mina Emergency Hospital.
He added that there are, still, different cases, such as fractions caused by stampedes, and exfoliation brought about by walking for long, as well as bruises. “All pilgrims who headed for the outpatient clinics have received the necessary treatment and left the hospital,” said Dr. Yasser, “whereas some other cases, which need additional care, have been referred, and received the necessary treatment, each according to its actual needs.”
The dentist, Dr. Abdullah Al-Shahri, for his part, said that the dentistry of Mina Emergency Hospital has received varying dental cases, ranging from mild, to medium and acute cases. According to Dr. Al-Shahri, most cases were suffering from neuritis and abscesses. Some cases underwent radiological imaging, and some other cases had surgical extractions. He added that, as part of the advanced and integrated medical services, a number of cases, those requiring critical surgical intervention, have been referred to other hospitals to receive the necessary treatment.
Dr. Zaher Kamaleddin, seconded from Al-Bathaa General Hospital (Al-Ahsa), has emphasized that outpatient clinics have been receiving cases around the clock, most of which are sore throat and inflammations, in addition to other patients who suffered from diarrhea, colic or constipation, low and high blood sugar and pressure. Dr. Zaher added that some cases had complications due to additional physical effort.
