Cold and respiratory problems in Santa Fe: bed occupancy is at its limit at the Alassia hospital, but they claim that “there is no collapse”

Low temperatures in the city of Santa Fe mean that consultations and hospitalizations for respiratory conditions remain at full capacity in the facilities with pediatric care. The Orlando Alassia Children’s Hospital has been working at its limit for at least three weeks, but the facility assures that so far there is no collapse and the high demand has been met.

“The current situation at the Children’s Hospital, in terms of the number of daily consultations in the central emergency room and the percentage of beds occupied in the different services, is stable,” said Alassia director Pablo Ledesma in an interview with AIRE.

Regarding the occupancy of hospital beds, the doctor reported that the percentage varies between 90% and 100% in the facility, depending on the time and day, something very typical of the winter season.

However, “with the work of the health team and constant communication and coordinated work with the ministry and the rest of the hospitals, it has been possible to resolve the situation and beds have been created,” said Ledesma, adding that, although they had to resort to some referrals to other hospitals due to lack of space, “the response is satisfactory and the system works well, in a coordinated manner.”

“There are no situations that cause a collapse, a response is being given and we hope to be able to continue working in the same way, in coordination with the ministry, with the referral center and with the rest of the city’s hospitals that have and provide pediatric care,” concluded the hospital director.
