  • This is what we aim to have , a smiling child,
  • As I said our budget is very limited, but those little things are important, bubbles, stickers, reward certificates and distraction tools are often purchased by myself or my colleagues, We recently acquired a stroller for our volunteers to save their backs when caring for children, giving parents a break.We also developed a paedaitric special pt folder, alerting our staff about children wit chronic illness or special health care needs to guide their careAn alert is placed on the child national index number
  • About 3 % of our paediatric presentations are resuscitations, so our staff don’t get a lot of exposure on an individual basis. I provide a 24 hour call back I live 3 minutes from the hospital, to assist, and support staff in these situations, Apart from ensuring my own exposure and learning , it allows me to support family presence as there is usually not enough hands, support our staff, allow them some time out if needed after it is all over, and to identify any equipment or training issues that may be useful. I try to follow up on cases and provide feedback to staf as to how children are doing.
