DIRECTOR of the Children’s Clinic in Tirsova, Siniša Dučić, told RTS that since the beginning of the pandemic, about 90 covid positive patients have passed through that clinic, and in the last three months, 40 patients. At the moment, three covid-positive patients are being treated.
The number of new patients in Serbia is decreasing, and among them the youngest ones. There have been vacancies in the kovid system in recent days.
The director of the Children’s Clinic in Tirsova, Professor Sinisa Ducic, said that they do not belong to the covid system, so he cannot say whether the number of patients has decreased due to the extended vacation.
– I am in daily communication with colleagues from covid hospitals, I mean “Dragiša Mišović”, I have information that there is a slightly smaller number of patients who appear due to covid infection – Dučić pointed out.
Ducic said that at this moment they have three kovid patients in that institution, a baby from a kovid positive mother, who is on a respirator and who is a difficult patient, then a 17-year-old patient who was found to have kovid during routine testing, as well as a patient of 10 years who has a tumor in the abdomen.
These two patients are not on mechanical ventilation, but, as he says, they are complex patients.
Since the beginning of the epidemic, about 90 covid-positive patients have passed through the Children’s Clinic, in the last three months 40 patients.
That, adds Dučić, is a significantly larger number of patients, and they also treated patients who have a postcovid multisystem response.
The delta plus soy
There is a significantly higher number of children with covid infection and with a severe clinical picture who require hospital treatment, so we do not expect anything good with the arrival of delta plus soy, said Dr. Ducic.
According to him, there is a good organization, there will be no problems in taking care of even the most difficult patients.
Increased number of children with respiratory infections
Compared to last year, the number of patients with respiratory infections has significantly increased.
A large number of patients with their parents come straight to Tirsovo, and there is a high frequency of patients and parents, which makes work more difficult, said the director of the Children’s Clinic.
Treatment of incoherent children
Ducic says that the Children’s Clinic is a reference center for the treatment of children, as far as outpatient examinations are concerned, there are slightly fewer examinations than before kovid, 3,500 and 4,000 examinations per week, chronic patients come, acute conditions in pediatrics and surgery are resolved as if they were not kovid.
We have reduced the elective operating program at the moment, we want to reduce the possibility of infecting staff and children, and a certain number of doctors and nurses are engaged in the covid system, Ducic underlined.
We perform operations whose delay would affect the worse outcome of the treatment without discussion, we perform about 25 to 30 operations a week, says Dučić.
Most doctors and nurses work at full speed, people are exhausted, this takes a long time, people take care of their health, says Dučić, emphasizing that the end is not near.
Vaccination of children
He points out that parents are interested in vaccination and reminds that the decision was made to vaccinate children over 12 years of age.
– A large number of parents, especially chronic patients, are inquiring about vaccination, our subspecialists advise vaccinating children, parents are significantly more interested – says Dučić.
He stated that more than 95% of doctors in that institution were vaccinated, about 60% of nurses, a certain number of nurses and doctors overcame kovid, so that 75% of nurses were immunized with both vaccine and bedridden kovid.
– Healthcare workers are well informed, we stimulate people to get vaccinated, my team believes that it is necessary, you cannot force someone, but we are looking to get as many workers as possible vaccinated – concluded Dučić.
