Baby is accompanied by nurses and is recovering in bed neonatal ICU

On the next Monday (15), the Health Department and the unions of Doctors and Hospitals, held a meeting on an urgent basis, to solve a health problem in the state of Pernambuco, the lack of beds for newly born who need to receive care in the ICUs of public hospitals. The situation led to Central Beds from Pernambuco to send on the last Wednesday (10), letter seeking help from the Regional Medical Council (Cremepe).

Earlier this month the situation worsened when the NICU of Cisam with seven beds, was closed due to an outbreak of infection caused by an excess of patients. The ICU should have been reopened on the 8th, but this has not happened. Another problem is in the state that has Caruaru NICU.

The ICU care within the state is even worse than in the metropolitan area. You have a limited number of beds for both adults and children and newborn. Recently there was an unexplained drop of beds in the prefecture of Petrolina, which runs the hospital Dom Malan said the president of Cremepe, Andrew Long.

Many children end up having to be transferred here and found the same situation of overcrowding. It is a sector crisis in the ICU, which needs to be rethought from all stakeholders so that we can find an outlet, said Andrew.

He said the intention is that the board ask private hospitals to help get kids that can not be met by the public.

According to the president of the Syndicate of Private Hospitals, Mardônio Farms, a private network has no beds available.

The network of hospitals in the private sector working in neonatal intensive care unit limit. It works, exactly, within the possibilities for additional health care, also telling the users of health plans, said the president. We are working strictly under the condition number of technically suitable for the service does not run the risk of infection that comes from excess demand. Consequently, in a dramatic situation, increase the number of beds may cause a generalized infection, he concluded.
