CEO Dr. Murali Naidu Answers Hospital Safety QuestionsMay 26, 2020
There is a growing concern people are jeopardizing their health by delaying care for ailments and elective surgeries.
Emergency rooms across the nation — including Manteca — are experiencing substantial drop-offs in emergency room visits due to the COVID-19 pandemic. At the same time cases of mild heart attacks and strokes — two things that need immediate medical attention to reduce the potential of life-long health impacts — have plummeted.
“If people are really sick and need care they shouldn’t be afraid of going to the hospital,” noted Dr. Murali Naidu, chief executive officer for Doctors Hospital of Manteca.
Naidu added that the risk of delaying care for some afflictions and illness can have serious consequences.
