Primitive Ropeways Used for Health in Rize: Health teams, who went to the home of an elderly woman for dental treatment within the scope of Home Health Services in Rize, carried their materials with primitive ropeways when there was no vehicle road to the patient's home.
Rize Oral and Dental Health Center Home Care Team went to the village for the treatment of the 75-year-old Aid for Life, who lives in Guneli village of Güneysu district. Due to the lack of a vehicle road home, the relatives of Yardım said that the medical teams could carry their heavy equipment with the primitive cable car they used to carry loads in the village. Rize Oral and Dental Health Center Chief Physician Uğur Yıldırım told reporters, patients who are bed-dependent and who need palliative (temporary) care within the scope of Home Health Services, Expressing that there are no patients who cannot reach the center in Rize, Yıldırım stated, “Citizens who cannot come to the center can apply by phone. We provide these patients with services such as home filling, root canal treatment, detertrage, removable prosthesis, fixed prosthesis, tooth extraction under general anesthesia. In this context, we have reached 2013 patients in 128 so far. Treatment of 30 of these patients continues. " said.
Nurse Türkan Berber, 37 is the nurse of the year, said that she thought it would be very difficult when assigned to home health care, said: The relatives of our patients directed us because our bag was heavy and it was difficult to get out. We were more comfortable with this method. There's a ropeway, but we can't always be lucky. There are so many places going and going. We are still proud and happy. In this unit, we are helping our patients with bedridden and transportation difficulties by going to their homes.
