The provisions of medications being lacking, because of the lockdown due to the outbreaks of MERS-CoV, trying these families, harder than before, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…
Toward the issues of dementia and psychological disorder, with the treatment measures of medications and other methods, it’s the methods that work best right now; and yet, due to the outbreaks, the formerly called “dual treatment measures” can only be put off, and after awhile, it’d impacted the rights of the patients, as well as their families.
I work in a community hospital, and found that my patients are faced with the problems of running out of medication, and can’t get the refills. Primarily this is caused by the clusters of infections, that the hospital halted its clinical treatment sessions for seven to fourteen days, which means that the patients can’t return to get the refills, and this is, a cause of their, unstable conditions.
The nonmedicinal treatment programs, due to the halting of operations, of these, included the centers of activities of demented elderly, along with the long-term care facility of psychiatry that got started last year, the lives of the tempos of the patients got altered, and they’d lost the focal point in their lives; while the family members, lacking the social support, they’d even lost the programs of having the physicians’ home visits to check up on the clients too, to reduce the chances of the spread of MERS-CoV.
Or maybe some would state, that if you can’t go to Hospital A to get the treatment measures needed, then, you can go to the opened and operating Hospital B to get the treatments that the patients are in need of, theoretically, this is applicable, but, not in the practical sense.
Of the reasons, one being, the patients needed to be present at the treatment sessions, if the patients are weakened, immobilized, or residents of long-term care facilities, couldn’t have the family members to get the medications from Hospital B. precisely stated, only the patients who are still able to move about freely, those who are weakened, elderly, couldn’t.
Secondly, the process of treatment in the psychiatric department is relying solely off of the familiarity of professional with their patients. To help the patients in the time being, switching them to Hospital B, changing hands of the treatment program’s physicians, it will do more harm than good. And if this can’t work, then, it’s still the patients, and their families who are, tried hard.
The outbreaks are here for the long run, and, there’s still no end in sight, and yet, the medial staffmember of the psychiatric department are, reduced by the days, with the lacking of medications, the caretaking burdens growing heavier than ever, and even if as a psychiatrist wrote the media a month ago, on how the hopes of the “Dual measures of treatment be returned to operations again”, it’d been over a month now, and still, nothing’s being done.
Based off of my encounters, the health department should get all the units together, to come up with a working plan. First, in saving up the resources of healthcare plan provisions, to prevent prescribing the access of medications, to reduce the harms of the patients by the medications as a forefront, set up a payment plan for the medications.
Secondly, standardizing the distant webcam treatment sessions, to provide the patients with the webcam treatment sessions, then help the patients get the prescriptions they are in need of, and offer the patients the supports from the long-term care facilities, nursing staffmembers as needed, to help the cases establish the most basic levels of connections; third, using the webcam treatment sessions and the insurance plans, to set up a standardized system of billing and treatment, so the privately owned hospitals have a set of rules they can go by, and can use the adjusted payment methods, to encourage the hospitals to get onboard this program.
The W.H.O. stated that mental health is a vital indicator of wellbeing, for the sake of the welfares of the patients, to reduce the caretaking pressures of the families, there’s still that need to set up a “real social security network”, and the healthcare systems, and the policy makers all need to be, onboard.
And so, this showed, how the problem only surfaces, during the times of the outbreaks, because now, nobody can get into the hospitals, but the elderly population, the mentally ill still needed to get their treatment sessions with their primary treating physicians, and so, there’s, this lacking in the system of provision of care, that needs to be worked on.
