Saving doctors: essential needs satisfied

Saving doctors: essential needs satisfied

Dear friends, we are approaching the finale. Actually, we have almost achieved our goals. In the past few days, we bought the last batches of equipment and delivered it to several hospitals. Their doctors are really happy, they smile and send you many thanks: they confirm most of their needs have been successfully covered. Fortunately, at the right moment, all conscious people aware of the danger, mobilized and supported them. A whole community came to the rescue: someone helped doctors on their own, others assisted medics in their communities, while a number of people one once again put their trust in us and helped accumulate resources and thus achieve much more than individuals can do by themselves We send our big sincere “thank you” to everyone who joined in and didn’t stay away from our initiative.

But, dear friends, we’re pretty sure you expect more specific info and transparent accounts from us. So let us report on the things done over the last period of time. So, let’s start. We bought a batch of waterproof suits and high surgical boot covers and transferred them to the Hospice, or Palliative Care Unit of the Kyiv City Clinical Hospital №10. They take care of the most difficult patients with Covid-19.  Traditionally, we cannot show you any pictures taken there as usually such transfers imply juggling bags, boxes and documents, which hardly makes good material for a photo. However, there is some comforting news: their doctors say that the number of patients has decreased slightly, and there is a slight hope that in some time the Unit will return to normal and proceed with caring for the people in need of medical care in their last days. It would be nice to get back to normal!

Another batch of equipment went to Kyiv Maternity Home #3. Their staff is busy 24/7 rescuing women in labour, newborns and pregnant women each of which can turn out to be infected with Covid. Childbirth, especially with complications, is a very special process that in no way can be postponed until the PCR tests are done: you just cannot say to a baby: “Excuse me, dear kid, but would you mind climbing back until we’re ready”. Hence medics have to be extremely careful with each case. And this, especially in the intense summer heat, makes a real test for operative teams of obstetricians, surgeons and resuscitators. We brought here the same reusable suits and boot covers, as well as a supply of respirators of the highest, third class of protection. 

This big robust man, Mr. Oleksandr, is a head of the Surgery Department. He’s truly happy to get PPE for his staff

Every piece of equipment is important and welcomed. Still the snorkeling masks re-modelled into an antiviral protection means, proved to be in the highest demand. Mr. Chief Surgeon got extraordinarily happy on seeing these: he says no traditional facial protection gear can compare to this. Face shields get wet soon, ordinary masks impede breathing, so the gear that includes all-in-one, serves as a perfect remedy. The medics thank Mr. Kostyantyn whose clever head invented this useful gear. Thanks also go to Ms. Larysa about whom we told you in our previous reports and whose ceaseless care of her colleagues and patients proves highly beneficial to everyone.

Another transfer has been made in favour of the Romodanov Cardiovascular Surgery Institute. This time they got half a hundred respirators of the highest, the third protective class. Local surgeons operate urgent patients with severe damages in blood circulation of the brain, so saving lives is often a matter of minutes. That is why their doctors who can contact an infected patient any minute, desperately need enough high-class PPE.

We also sent more equipment to Mykolayiv hospitals. This transfer consists of large quantities of less significant trivia, so instead of an itemized report we are going to show you all the expenditures below. 

Now let’s summarize. Three months of work, twelve medical institutions, about 20 thousand items of PPE, and more than half a million Hryvnias. All these numbers are reflected in an itemized report on the project which is available via the link. The last need specified by medics that we have to meet, is a portable cardiograph. This device is long-awaited by the staff of the Kremenchuk Central Regional Hospital. The medics have already got one such device, but need another one to avoid sharing the same apparatus between the infected and “clear” departments of their hospital. Including the discount, this device will cost about 15 thousand hryvnias which we have to pay shortly. So, dear friends, as usual, your affordable contributions are highly welcome. Join in please!
