TweetThis! Bado lipo tatizo kubwa kwenye utoaji damu

Tafadhali soma na sikiliza habari iliyonakiliwa hapo chini.

Changamoto katika sekta ya afya kama zilivyo sekta nyingine ni umakini na kuzingatia maadili ya kazi. Uzito wa suala hili unaongezeka katika sekta ya afya kwa kuwa waajiri wake wengi wanahusika moja kwa moja na maisha ya binadamu hasa aliye na ugonjwa ama katika hatari ya kupoteza uhai.

Ninadhani ili kukabiliana na ubovu wa aina mbalimbali katika zahanati, vituo vya afya, hospitali na hospitali za afya, uboreshwaji wa mazingira ya kazi na upatikanaji wa vitendea kazi stahili ni msingi mkuu utakaowezesha kuongeza ufanisi, nia na hamu ya kufanya kazi kwa juhudi na maarifa.

The regional hospital in Dodoma, Tanzania. Last month, about 20 women and girls were treated by expert surgeons for an internal injury suffered during labor.

DODOMA, Tanzania — It’s not uncommon for hospitals in this country to run out of blood, and when a patient needs a transfusion, friends and relatives are sometimes recruited on the spot as donors.

After a Devastating Birth Injury, Hope

So in January, when visiting surgeons were repairing fistulas and a patient needed a blood type that had run out, two volunteers were hastily rounded up and hustled off to the blood bank, a three-room building with a refrigerator that held a dozen or so bags of blood, all the wrong kind.

Anyone who has given blood in the United States knows that it can take an hour or more, given all the paperwork, the ever-expanding list of questions beforehand (Have you ever had sex with a man who has had sex with a man who has had sex with a man? ...) and the coddling afterward, the fretful advice to rest a bit and stay for cookies and juice so you don’t faint.

It was different in Dodoma. The donors arrived near quitting time, and the technician didn’t waste a second. He seated them at a table and got right down to business. The equipment was all disposable and new, still sealed in its wrappers.

There were no forms to fill out, no questions asked, no fussing around with alcohol wipes. The technician seized a donor’s finger, blew on it, jabbed away and squeezed a few drops of blood into some test kits. The results came a minute or two later: O positive, H.I.V. negative.

He nodded. Good to go. No need to check hemoglobin, he informed both donors — they didn’t look anemic.

He beckoned them into the next room and told them each to lie down on a padded table and stick out an arm. Antiseptic for the skin? No need, he said: they looked clean.

He had a new pair of disposable gloves, but instead of putting them on himself, he used them as tourniquets to make the veins bulge in the donors’ arms. With a deft hand he sent the needles home and bustled off to take care of other business, leaving the collection bags on the floor for gravity and pulse to do their work.He dashed back into the room a few minutes later, noted that the bags were full and pulled out the needles. He gave each donor a wad of cotton wool with a bit of alcohol in it, to press over the puncture. All done, he said, waving them off the tables. Time to go. They got up and went. No cookies, no juice, not even a Band-Aid. Nobody fainted. The whole thing had taken 20 minutes.
