Project of the Ulyanovsk region "Otkritaya reanimatsiya" was highly evaluated by participants of the ASI Supervisory Board’s meeting

The meeting took place in Petrozavodsk on 26 July under the chairmanship of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin. The event was attended by the Governor Sergey Morozov.

 The Director-General of the Agency for Strategic Initiatives Svetlana Chupsheva gave the project in Ulyanovsk region "Otkritaya reanimatsiya" as an example of positive practices implemented in the regions.

“Sergey Ivanovich Morozov brings great ideas. Today, charities asked about the project "Otkritaya reanimatsiya", Arthur Olegovich was interested in the pilot regions that will implement this practice. We agree that it should not be done forcibly and it is necessary to pay attention to the doctors' opinion. However, the best things that happen today show how this practice can be applied in hospitals. We showed the Deputy Minister of Health of the Russian Federation how Sergey Ivanovich made city hospital suitable for joint stay of children and their parents in intensive care units. It is very comfortable for a child; a parent will feel relaxed and will be able to help. Doctors will see them as assistants: parents do not interfere with their work but help caring for children,” - said Svetlana Chupsheva.

Before the session of the ASI Supervisory Council, the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin held a meeting with representatives of non-profit organizations, charities, volunteer organizations and social entrepreneurs working in the social sphere. The Director of the Konstantin Khabensky Charitable Foundation Elena Meshkova raised the issue of creating open intensive care units.

“This is a very delicate sphere which should be regulated primarily by the experts themselves and we cannot ignore their opinion. By the way, according to the regulatory framework, it is up to the medical institution to decide whether to accept a patient or not to the intensive care unit where anesthesiologists work. We discussed this with the Minister of Health and will continue to move in the set direction. It is important to have in mind that openness of medical institutions is also very important to control what is happening in health care. We will continue our work. Be free to offer your own ideas and best practices, and we will do our best to promote them, okay?”, - said the President of Russian Federation Vladimir Putin.

This year, the “Otkritaya reanimatsiya” project was launched in the Ulyanovsk region. On 7 March, Svetlana Chupsheva together with the management of the Konstantin Khabensky Charitable Foundation and the VERA Hospice Charity Fund visited the emergency department and intensive care unit №1 of the Ulyanovsk Children's City Hospital. Special conditions were created here for parents visiting their seriously ill children. Federal experts highly praised this practice.

“It is very important that our experience in creating "Otkritaya reanimatsiya" was presented to Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin as an example of positive initiatives. On the one hand, it is a great honor and recognition that the Ulyanovsk region is moving in the right direction. On the other hand, it is a huge responsibility. When we, the first of the regions, decided to implement this project, we knew what a serious challenge it was. Lives of children, lives of families depend on careful observance of all the necessary conditions and medical requirements. While developing the project, we tried to consider all ins and outs, the recommendations of doctors. We also purchased the latest equipment. Our task was to create conditions where seriously ill children could feel the love and support of their mothers and fathers, where they would be surrounded with warmth and care. We have organized a special school for parents to teach them how to take proper care of their child. Today, about 60 families used services of "Otkritaya reanimatsiya", and we received a lot of positive feedback about this project from local residents,” - said the Governor of the Ulyanovsk region Sergey Morozov.

According to the Minister of Health, Family and Social Welfare of the Ulyanovsk region Rasheed Abdullov, 20 million rubles were used for modernization of the emergency room and anesthesiology-intensive care unit №1 of the Ulyanovsk Children's City Hospital. Special conditions were created there for day and 24-hour stay of parents or legal representatives of seriously ill children. These include a lounge (where parents will be able to watch the intensive care room all day long), a shower room and a place where people can eat. Among the facilities are also an educational simulation class for parents and a Nursing School (“Shkola Uhoda”).
