The Ministry of Health was asked to simplify the access of parents to the intensive care unit to children

The Foundation “Children’s Palliative” appealed to the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation with a request to facilitate access to intensive care for parents of sick children, the newspaper Izvestia writes.

It is reported that within the framework of the Open Resuscitation project, an experiment was conducted in eight regions of Russia from September 2020 to November 2021, which significantly simplified the access of parents to the intensive care units where their children were.

Parents helped the medical staff with sanitary and hygienic procedures, feeding the child, monitored the operation of the equipment that is connected to it.

As a result, more than half of the doctors (57.1%) responded positively to the help of parents.

Earlier, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, President of the Dmitry Rogachev Center Alexander Rumyantsev said that anesthesiologists-resuscitators of the Russian Children’s Clinical Hospital (RDCB) with the help of modern telemedicine technologies help to carry out emergency treatment for children across the country.

According to him, the intensive care unit of the hospital is the largest children’s intensive care service in the country and serves as an expert in relation to all such services in the Russian Federation. Doctors of various specialties provide high-tech medical care here according to the most modern treatment protocols.
