Civitavecchia – ASL RM 4, Quintavalle: “San Paolo Hospital ‘ it grows well ‘”
E ’ A particularly crowded Friday night of first aid night was sufficient, a phenomenon that is unfortunately always physiological (and not only on Friday) for Roman hospitals, to shout at the disaster, to ‘ nightmare night ’ ‘ tragedies ’ Avoid only fortunately. Fortunately, none of this, and San Paolo, as every citizen can be able to see, is continuing to grow and improve to offer more and more qualities and services to citizenship.
“We are proud of our ‘angels’, of the ‘heroes’ who work day and night in the Emergency Room of the ‘San Paolo’ Hospital, of the great work they carry out amidst a thousand difficulties, but doctors, nurses and operators can be sure that we are and will always be at by their side in every situation.” these were the first words of the Director General Quintavalle the day after the ‘explosive’ for accesses and transits that characterized the activity of the emergency unit of the city hospital, without ever compromising the high professionalism and effectiveness of intervention.
“In reality – continues Quintavalle – it is a partially foreseeable flooding, the result of the particular situation of the territory, overbooking that occurs from time to time precisely because it is ‘congenital’: the presence of many elderly people from the many active RSA (assisted health residences) on the territory, the winter flu peaks, the tourist traffic, the unfortunately still initial phase in the launch of the alternative specialized aggregations available 24 hours a day and during the holidays, combined however with other unpredictable city events (road accidents, excesses from ’ 8216;movida’, delinquent acts, etc.)“
“The strategic direction, well conscious of the incidence of this cause on the sporadic overcrowding in the emergency room, has given full mandate to the company health management to seek, with private and public competitors, the adoption of possible operational protocols , capable of mitigating in a structural basis, the influx of patients, and on this the company health director Dott. Sciannamea and his staff have been working for some time.
Then there are two other decisive factors: the insufficiency of spaces intended for the short observation (but, thanks to regional funding, the solution with the recovery and renovation of the premises of the current C.U.P.), and the expansion of personnel (on which the intended with the Lazio Region seems to be equally next to the concession within the year of derogations aimed at the assumption of new units).”
To tell the truth, we cannot forget that the health care of the Lazio Region is still commissioned by the Government for the return of the enormous deficit accumulated in recent years, and that in fact it cannot grant increases in personnel, funding, or derogations from the #8217;recruitment without a prior government consent. Nonetheless, some exemptions have recently been granted for the hiring of doctors and nurses, which have made it possible to solve important health problems such as dialysis and give a partial response to the needs of anesthesia, paediatrics, medicine and orthopedics. To these, based on the requests of the company management, others will follow that will allow to optimize the working load of operators also in light of the new legislation on working hours, while however taking into account that the activity of the ; The health company must be guaranteed equally on all and twenty -eight municipalities that are included there.
Finally, it should be acknowledged that the finish line of the government commissioner is now close to the regional healthcare, exit from the government commissioner thanks to the important results of the deficit reached in the last three years, and this can only benefit the whole regional health system.
“Finally, regarding the possible staff crises in the various hospital wards in the summer period – specified the manager – It is not a new problem, we have been dealing with it for years with effective and also for next summer the Dott. Sciannamea with the due foresight, is preparing all the organizational measures necessary to face any problems and in any case also the administrative management, Dott.SSA Milito has long been working closely with the various department and structure managers to evaluate and possibly promote the possibilities of intervention are structural rather than temporary”
In short, a 360-degree strategy is being put in place to stem the phenomenon and prevent it as far as possible, with medical managers, department directors and the Health Department planning interventions and developing new operating protocols, and with the Strategic Department which oversees the coordination with the administrative activity and which plays an essential role of ‘hinge’ with regional decisions.
