On October 31st, Hanganak monthly coordination meeting took place. In recent months, nurses and social workers submitted their monthly reports to the program coordinator Lina Grigoryan on their duty days. Recent financial problems have negatively affected routine work of the organization, and coordination meetings have been postponed for a while.
The nurses and social workers submitted reports on their work in accordance with the accepted procedure. The submitted reports were supplemented by the reports of the doctor and the accountant, which compiled the financial and progress monthly reports of the AWWA.
The medical staff introduced the beneficiaries they served, paying special attention to the elderly with serious health problems. Particular attention was paid to hospitalized patients. Two beneficiaries have been discharged from the hospital and one is still being treated in the intensive care unit. All three cases were discussed, one of which, Ruzanna T, needed a blood transfusion.
There was no B(III)Rh+ blood in Artsakh, which was announced on the Hanganak NGO Facebook page. Unexpectedly, Nancy Barsamian reacted, who, thanks to her connections received a positive response from the Syunik Blood Transfusion Center that blood of the relevant group was available. In an incredibly short time, that blood, or more precisely 2 packages of red cell mass, was delivered to Stepanakert, which became fatal for the beneficiary’s treatment. She has been discharged from the hospital and continues her treatment at home. What a wonderful example of human compassion and willingness to help!
The story of the other patient, Greta A, is less reliable. On October 1st, she was hospitalized with an ischemic stroke. After receiving treatment in the department of resuscitation for 2 weeks, she was transferred to the intensive care unit and now continues treatment there. The beneficiary’s medical history was discussed and it was found that she has been suffering from hypertension for many years, but because of allergies, she did not receive comprehensive treatment, which led her to ischemic stroke.
This case study is clear evidence of insufficient patient management. Dr. Lilia Seyranyan and coordinator Lina Grigoryan were asked to present all high blood pressure and diabetes cases and management plans in a short time. All those cases will be discussed individually in the coming week.
The main goal of trainings for medical staff should be the prevention of diseases and their complications. The discussion of this theme will be the main topic of all coordination meetings.
Social workers served 34 most vulnerable beneficiaries; they have noted that the health conditions of beneficiaries have not changed. The implemented work was assessed as satisfactory.
No new cases of Covid-19 have been reported. There has been one death. Rosalia B. died at the age of 93.
A number of other organizational issues were discussed.
