COVID -19 Information & Awareness desk
Department of Community Medicine started the Patient Education Desk in the OPD Complex of the Dr D Y Patil Hospital, Kadamwadi from 17th March 2020. Even before the lockdown was announced, the hospital extended its services to provide patient sensitisation and education to pre-empt the possible spread of SARS-Corona Virus-2 infection.
This desk continues to work, at the entrance of the hospital.
Pamphlets on prevention of spread of Corona virus disease have been distributed to patients. Counselling for patient concerns is also done here by trained doctors and staff of the hospital.
