Medical Error Causes Palestinian Refugee Woman to Go Hemiplegic in Turkey

Palestinian refugee Mahmoud Bastouni, displaced from Syria’s Yarmouk Camp, said his wife suffered hemiplegia and coagulation due to medical errors in Istanbul.

Mahmoud said that in 2018, his 23-year-old wife was erroneously diagnosed by a doctor at a hospital in Istanbul, which caused her three strokes and heart attacks. The wife has gone hemiplegic and suffered acute aortic valve regurgitation. She underwent an open-heart surgery.

A couple of years later, she suffered valve-related complication as a result of the botched heart surgery. The wife needs another valve replacement surgery.

The cash-stripped husband has failed to secure surgery and treatment fees. He has gone unemployed as a result of years of displacement. He has appealed to the Turkish President and international humanitarian institutions to help him with the treatment charges.

Recently, Palestinian refugees from Syria in Turkey have expressed concerns over their deteriorating condition particularly in light of the new movement clampdown imposed across Turkish provinces as part of anti-coronavirus measures.

A large number of companies, factories, and shops shut their doors for fear of further COVID-19 contaminations. Several Palestinian families have lost their sole sources of income as a result.
