To cope with the emergency, the hypothesis of the Involve accredited private facilities to lighten the load of patients waiting in the emergency rooms of hospitals in the Capital.
“The attendance situation in the capital’s emergency rooms is constant and detected daily at 6 different times (at 8 o’clock.00- 12.00-14.00-18.00-20.00- 22.00).
