Among the sanitary services that are considered relevant during the pandemic is the occurrence of pediatric athens. This is the reason for the attentional fold of many guys and girls from the localities of Argentina with failures to access a consultation. These are some of the features that make Pediatric Pediatric Mobile a program of Casa Ronald de Argentina.

Casa Ronald is an independent, fine-grained organization dedicated to children, from over 25 years old, to the company of children, girls and teenagers who require the highest level of medical attention in their families. The most difficult program is the one that’s the name: when it comes to four “cases”, there are spatial limitations in hospitals that limit the content of family members who receive medical treatment at the expense of high complexity. Estonia in the city of Buenos Aires, Córdoba, Mendoza and Bahía Blanca. In a similar vein, the organization is called “family salons”, where parents and grandparents have the opportunity to leave the hospital and the patient is interned, in four hospitals in the country (one in the Federal Capital, one in La Plata and another in Córdoba). ).

“The function of the cases is to circulate to the children with high complexity treatments, because the intention is to affect the most positive country possible. Así surgen las family rooms and play the pediatric mobile unit, which inflates in the prevention. We deal with pathologies diagnosed only with primary and secondary attitudes with different access to the health system “, explicitly Julieta Cortijo, executive director of Casa Ronald de Argentina.

A new truck

Argentina is the first country, the United States, to have a pediatric mobile unit: the team has been there since 2001 and is still functioning properly. At the end of the year, more than a dozen years ago, Casa Ronald Argentina recreated a new truck. “The previous unit only had many kilometers recovered and the wind blew a new one. “Now we have a team with prime technology,” said Cortijo.

The truck has 13 meters away and counts with three consultants: the pediatric, the dental and the ophthalmological. Inside the equipment unit, a monitor is used to visualize physiological parameters; Hendidura lamp, autofractometer, and visual acuity portfolio — before refraction on small, inclusive babies, and detecting possible vision problems — ophthalmoscopy, and dental syringes.

The pediatric mobile unit is installed during a semester in a locality to achieve the attenuation of the lunar and summer hours from 9 to 17 h. This is what the program calls an “operative”. Pediatricians, ophthalmologists and ophthalmologists who are part of the team contracted by Casa Ronald (rotan, but always there are three), are all operative residents and medical students from the visited area, who support the doctor and you can be the most successful candidate for men.

This year, Casa Ronald has 18 operational programs, mainly concentrated in three areas of Gran Buenos Aires: Pilar, La Matanza and San Miguel. “We are looking for more than one egg in one place,” said Cortijo.

The pediatric unit has the capacity to accommodate up to 80 children per day, which totals 400 in one week. Members of the league in a municipality are seated.

“Always bus terminals with the complete plan. “If you want to be auspicious, you have to take advantage of the spontaneous demand, which generates all the way to the end of the week, when the only ones advising the presence of the truck”, explains the executive director of Casa Ronald de Argentina.

The articulation, the key

To describe how the operatives are intended, Cortijo emphasizes something that is centrally considered: articulation with the authorities of each municipality. “In order to guarantee an attenuation with its important algunas air conditioning previas. For example, that the municipality fights with the anticipation of the tournaments, that the permits that the doctors are sent directly to the country “, says.

However, explicitly, the municipality should collaborate with logistical questions related to the operation of the truck, such as bridging an escalator (which only requires short cuts) and trying to find a healthy center that can be opened electrics in case of needles.

“The most important thing – Cortijo sum – is that the municipality does not guarantee that upon detection of a pathology, a derivation can occur. Because the pediatric unit does not have the primary attraction, but it does not identify itself more than just guaranteeing that the mother or the pope will lead the derivation to a center of reference ”.

Of the work done since 2022, the percentage of derivatives and other specialists is 64%. A large number of people are being treated for tooth decay, caries and exodus, ophthalmology for anthrax, nutritional problems and sobriety — an equal proportion — a cardiologist, a psychologist, a psychologist, a psychologist, a pediatrician. One 25% of derivations are multiples.

The relation with the mumbai también incid in the rumbo elec that records the pediatric mobile unit. Because Casa Ronald’s need to have an area where there is no need for resources, they have the privilege of dealing with localities where there is such a relationship. “In a nutshell, we are the ones who can not guarantee basic air conditioning. “This is a work in progress, but it does not affect the ayr relations, since with the time they generate fans”, explicitly Cortijo.

“The first thing we do to contact Casa Ronald is to get a ticket and secure the health center of the district that supports it. We define logistical questions, such as the location of the truck, searching for what is most likely to be in the center, but only provide salutations and space-proof platforms. However, there is no need for electricity or hot springs, ”said Luis Costan, secretary general of Salud de San Miguel.

“Generally the operatives have an experience enriched by the interchange between professionals in the municipality and Casa Ronald”, commented the functionary. The aggregate that works in conjunction with the compatibility of digital clinical history programs: “For those consultations during which operating levels in our system”, explicitly.

Costs accrue that operatives are hired by persons who approach the pediatric athena offered by Casa Ronald tambien visit the municipal health center for, for example, access to vacation.

He concluded: “From the municipal state we consider the fundamental dialogue with the civil society. With Casa Ronald the result is very clear: we have a similar vision of accomplishment in health. There are excellent results, miles of families recovering attenuation, even with the prevention of nurses and the promotion of healthy habitats ”.
