Waiting list for care in Emergency Care Unit (PSU 24) in Botafogo, Rio de Janeiro

The Regional Medical Council of the State of Rio de Janeiro (CREMERJ) issued a statement criticizing the state government project in which doctors in emergency care units (PSUs) are going to have to help physicians away from the Institute of Pediatrics and Child Care Martagão Gesteira ( IPPMG) linked to the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), in pediatric care through teleconferences.

The initiative will be implemented in PSUs administered by the government of Rio de Janeiro.

In a statement, the council says the move will incur health risk and to replace professionals. The department says there is difficulty in filling vacancies pediatrics, pediatricians but not lacking, especially in the Southeast. What are lacking adequate working conditions, argued in a statement, the president of CREMERJ, Marcia Rose Araujo.

The organization also criticizes the lack of professionals in other specialties in public. There is no shortage only pediatricians, but doctors of all specialties. The inspections of CREMERJ last year showed that 74% of public units are reduced with the teams.

Regarding criticism of CREMERJ, the State Health Department argued in a statement that the goal of the project is "improve service" and allow doctors rescuers "a second opinion in complicated cases."

"In neither case is intended to replace the technology by physicians. Instead, the department will train them in order to learn to use in their units, a tool to help streamline increasingly diagnosed patients," says note of the secretariat.

The state government also uses telemedicine in the care of patients with cardiac and neurological problems, focusing on strokes.
