      Influenza A: six deceases during weekend




      The personnel of the hospital Jeetoo was on edge during weekend. The establishment recorded two deceases owed to influenza IN / H1N1. There are also four other suspicious deceases.Six patients died of suites of respiratory complications during weekend in the hospital Jeetoo, Port-Louis. Among: two ten-year-old children, who were " brought in dead " in the hospital. In other words, they were already dead when they were taken in the emergency of the hospital. They both suffered from strong fever and from cough.

      The four other died patients, adults, were under artificial breathing in Surgical Intensive Care Join. Two of them had contracted the virus HAS / H1N1. Nowadays, there are three other patients who are also under artificial breathing in this hospital. They are too attained of the virus of influenza IN / H1N1. As for both patients who are under artificial breathing in ICU of the hospital SSR, Grapefruits, whom Challenge - More mentioned in its delivery of Saturday, they are there always.
      Let us say that they also suffer from similar symptoms in those of influenza A. The minister goes out of her hinges It is necessary to know that, besides both deceases of the hospital Jeetoo, there were three official deceases linked to this illness: Jefford White (53 years), Ramawtee Dig Dig (47 years) and Ravi Thupsy (24 years). Influenza A could have made another victim. It is about Ramdev Rambacasse. This 45-year-old man returned soul to the hospital Victoria, Candos, on Sunday, July 18th, of suites of respiratory complications. Ramdev Rambacasse, which lives in Chitracoot, in Vallée-des-Prêtres, had been accepted in the hospital Jeetoo with symptoms of influenza. It was transferred, later, to the hospital Victoria. But, we add that it is about a suspicious and unconfirmed case.

      Moreover, Maya Hanoomanjee visited Flu Clinic of the hospital Victoria, on Monday morning, to be sure that everything goes well. She went out of her hinges by noting that there was a gathering in the room of wait. In effect, many persons had come to make vaccinate.


      Problem, it is that there were only three nurses to vaccinate all these persons who had regrouped around them. What did not rain the minister. Besides, we learnt that at nine o'clock, vaccines were not available. Angry, Maya Hanoomanjee demanded that two other nurses come to support the colleagues to vaccinate all crowd. Besides, during a point of press, later, it expressed its frustration. The minister of Health declared that she must have « come to put order ».

      We learn on the other hand that the Victoria hospital is overcrowded owing to following number of the sick at the moment suffering from symptoms of influenza and which are hospitalized there. Rooms are so much filled that the patients are sometimes forced to wait for the hours to make accept.

      Others, weary war, prefer signing the form of Discharge Against Medical Advice (RAMS) and come home. Besides, there are long lines of wait often in emergency as consultations.
      This situation is owed, on top of the problem of extra of patients, due to the fact that the doctors prove to be more careful by sounding the sick suffering from symptoms of influenza. They take five-ten minutes to sound these sick.

      However, these long wait for examination with a stethoscope also results due to the fact that a good many of the members of the treating personnel are in leave at the moment. Some people are on sick leave. They were too victims of influenza. Others took some days of leave to spend a little of time with their children who are on vacation.

        Influenza A Mauritius: Hospitals overwhelmed

        http://www.kotzot.com/news/grippe-a-...-debordes.html

        automatic translation.

        A similar scenario is available in all hospitals of the island: patients with symptoms of influenza tributary. Veterans Affairs Canada is looking to recruit retirees from its service to meet demand Ala.

        THE tributary patients and emergency rooms are crowded. The same scenario occurs in all hospitals of the island. The patients have symptoms such as influenza A. After having recorded several deaths (see below) and then the number of influenza cases increase in schools (see box), the Ministry of Education and of Health are a series of measures.

        To better meet demand, the Ministry of Health plans to recruit nurses and nannies. It will also draw for retired health service to address the shortage of nursing staff.

        A spokesman for the Ministry of Health said yesterday it is to enable the country to face the threat of influenza A (H1N1). These measures will be communicated officially by the Minister Rajesh JEETAH this week.

        Meanwhile, we've rounded up some hospitals of the island. One thing is clear: the medical staff is overwhelmed. At the Flacq Hospital yesterday, doctors are alarmed: "There are so many people coming there more room in the halls. We are forced to send patients in the Surgical Ward is exclusively for patients who underwent surgery. "Many parents, worried about their children, visited hospitals, history of reassurance. Already, during the weekend, the Department of Pediatrics at Flacq Hospital was besieged by children with signs of fever. It was the same in the ENT Vacoas.

        Cautious, young doctors Flacq Hospital will not admit all patients with symptoms of influenza. Admission rooms were quickly saturated.

        This is particularly the case for pediatrics.

        As soon as a bed becomes available, it is assigned to another patient, said a nurse on call last night to 20 h30.

        The situation is such that the Department has even canceled leave for all physicians in this period.

        The staff on the go

        At Jawaharlal Nehru Hospital, the emergency were also crowded yesterday morning. The nurse Govindass Nathoo was on night duty the day before or the night of Saturday to Sunday. He says that his career that dates back several years, he has never seen a Saturday night and agitated, with a large number of admissions.

        He explained that staff was constantly on the go for taking temperatures and other injections.

        While preparing to return home, he said he had noticed that within one hour, at least 50 people showed up. The nurse stresses that emergency measures must be taken to strengthen the staff.

        On the other hand, the thermometers used are no longer effective, having outlived their usefulness. However, the temperature measurement is essential for the detection of influenza A. Today, the director of the hospital has initiated steps to have the proper equipment is distributed to the staff.

        At the Victoria Hospital Candos, a specialized department was created to accommodate influenza cases. The number of children attending the emergency department is also alarming.

        Around 18 h 30 yesterday the queue of patients was impressive. In the vicinity of emergencies, concern for each other was palpable. Although they do not wear the mask, all the noses were covered by shawls or handkerchiefs.

        And it should also be patient. After waiting at emergency, it must also wait for his turn in the interminable line to be able to get drugs or get his card for admission. An unusual scenario for a Sunday.

        As for private health care, a doctor testified that if the tributary. The pediatrician of the Eastern Region said that his consultations normally ends around noon. But yesterday, he still sounding out its patients at three o'clock in the afternoon. And one day, he said he had received at least a dozen patients.

        Already, under normal circumstances, the health department lacks staff.

        To get to fill vacancies should normally wait until the end of this training session of the Nursing School, near the end of the year. Hence the need to seek qualified individuals who can still help.

        While welcoming the government's decision to strengthen the staff, the president of the Nursery Association,

        Cassam Kurreeman, argues that it should ensure that the contract be for a period of one year and is renewable. "We can not accept that retirees are hired only to be flanked at the door as soon as the situation returned to normal," he says.

        Cassam Kurreeman also believes that caregivers should follow a preventive treatment with Tamiflu since it is more exposed to the disease. He said he submitted the request to the Minister of Health Tuesday, "but without success"
