A modern children’s emergency room was established in Banská Bystrica.

“Last year was a difficult test. However, we have stabilized this despite the pandemic or the reconstruction of these premises in full operation, “said the director of the Children’s University Hospital in Banská Bystrica, Juraj Gallo. “This workplace was built for almost fifteen months. Construction work, equipment and technology cost a little over a million euros. Most were financed from European Union funds, “he explained.

He went on to say that the biggest change is the complex management of the patient from the time of entering the hospital, which avoids wasting time in the waiting room. At the very beginning, it is captured and, depending on its severity, also treated. “In the reception room, the nurse classifies him and places him in one of the examination boxes. Depending on the speed and need, he is then provided with health care in the surgical or pediatric outpatient clinics that we have here, “added Gallo, adding that they have been operating in the restored conditions since the beginning of May.

A modern children’s emergency room was established in Banská Bystrica Children’s urgent.

The head of the Banská Bystrica children’s urgent, Milan Galko, clarified that it would be decided upon admission which specialists would call the patient and they would then come directly to him. Thus, his parents do not have to “wander” through various ambulances, ie door to door. “We offer comprehensive care with the latest technology in one place. Patient capacity has also increased. In May, we treated about 850 of them here, a month before it was 775, “he remarked. It is said that patients most often come there after injuries and with abdominal or headaches. The primary underlined that the new workplace meets the strictest criteria and requirements of today. “We provide health care with our multidisciplinary team to children under the age of eighteen all year round,” he reminded.

The Minister of Health Vladimír Lengvarský (nom. OĽaNO) also came to see the modern emergency. He mentioned that this is the second workplace of this type in Slovakia. The first ones were put into operation at the National Institute of Pediatric Diseases in Bratislava. “Together with the team, we have a lot of work ahead of us and a unique opportunity to modernize our healthcare system in the near future,” said the minister. “For many years, the construction of hospitals has only been talked about without tangible results. Thanks to the recovery plan, we have before us a concrete vision of building several new medical facilities with a real result, “he claims. He wished doctors, nurses and other workers at the Banská Bystrica hospital to work well in modern premises. “And I wish the little patients who get here a speedy recovery,” Lengvarský added.

The Banská Bystrica Children’s Hospital is a terminal workplace. This means that the patient will be comprehensively examined and assessed there. Depending on the condition, it is managed by expectation, hospitalization or discharge into home care. It is expected that the emergence of a new type of children’s emergency will also mean the expansion of the catchment area not only to Banská Bystrica and its surroundings, but to the entire region. The number of people treated should be about 15,000 a year. Effectiveness in this direction is brought about by the introduction of the Manchester triathlon system, which is the process of classifying patients into color groups according to the severity of their condition and the urgency of the final treatment.
