Bengaluru: Covid-19 patients may soon be able to have an attendant with them in the hospital. It is said that patients go through ’emotional breakdown’, loneliness without attendants

Especially elderly patients need attendants as they feel more distressed. Doctors claim that most of the elderly patients do not know how to use a phone to contact their families. Also, health staff find it difficult to look after such patients

It is said that attendants will be allowed inside the ward to assist patients wearing PPE kits.  They will allowed to help them with their personal hygiene tasks, delivering meals to them, among others.
