COVID-19, the disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, has affected approximately nine million people around the world.1 All health institutions have had to review their capacities and systems to fight this disease. Hospital management has had to rethink its parameters regarding personnel, equipment and number of beds.2 Many hospitals have had to undergo restructurings in their combat against this disease.

In Turkey, the Ministry of Health and the government have made very important and adequate decisions with the help of an advisory council, the Scientific Council, made up of academics and experts.

It is of the utmost importance to transmit the practices and experiences acquired in hospital management during the pandemic process.
