It is clear that this 2020 put global society on the front line to fight against something lethal and violent . In no way were we prepared to deal with such a large problem . Not at the health level, much less with regard to the psychological. We were gradually learning what coronavirus was about and living with anger, helplessness, anger and fears .
But, between rates of contagion and numbers of deaths, some unknowns began to resonate strongly . What happens to those who transit severe states in hospitals?, do we human beings not have the inalienable right to a dignified death? On the other hand, who thinks of the anguish of relatives waiting on the outskirts of institutions? In this regard, stories abound of those who saw the people they loved enter through a door without return. There were no chances of farewell , of a wake, of a last goodbye that would alleviate tremendous sorrow .
The longer the time goes, so do the certainties with the pandemic . And we have constantly heard that this is a disease with which we are going to have to coexist, at least in the near future. In view of this, the Ministry of Health of Entre Ríos made a decision aimed at humanizing medical care and treatment . Through the Health Emergency Organization Committee (COES) , certain guidelines were established for a comprehensive approach to the context. There, recommendations are provided for the accompaniment of people with coronavirus who go through situations of last days or hours of life .
The document issued recognizes the suffering and emotional consequences that may result in death alone or in solitude . In the first instance, priority is given to the right to a dignified death and to humanize health care . Then, we aim to focus on the process that includes patients, family, affective environment and professional teams. The right to information, decision-making and respect for autonomy is also guaranteed. In addition, contact and communication between the affected person, the affected person and the institution will be facilitated, with appropriate measures being taken.
The initiative is of great importance , considering that it is a demand that is being replicated throughout the country, and health workers are advised to have an interdisciplinary and intersectoral team . This should be composed of doctors, nurses, psychologists and social workers , among others. All in order to promote connection and containment to families , where the role of mental health will be paramount . The COES considers it necessary to offer a first psychological aid to loved ones who are in the process of loss.
Once advised on the risks and the procedure to be carried out, the person may enter the place of detention. During the visit you will have the possibility to talk to the patient and even grab him by the hand (which will be previously disinfected). It is also allowed to carry items of sentimental value and make video calls . Finally, in the event of death, it is recommended to follow up the family members to provide them with the necessary support. And thus give them the chance to continue with remote therapeutic care to cope with the difficult time. Because we're human first and foremost, and no virus can change that.
