By Tiffanne RamphalSince the birth registration process has been now taken into the maternity ward, expecting mothers are being urged to have names for their babies in mind as well as other essential documents on hand to register the child,Air Max 90 Scontate, even before entering the labour room.This is due to the recent implementation of Bedside Birth Registration at the records management level of the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC),Camo China NFL Jerseys, which aims at ensuring that no live birthA Records Department clerk conducting beside registration in the postnatal ward at the GPHC.conducted at the health facility goes unregistered.Bedside registering is also being adapted by the New Amsterdam (Region 6) and Suddie (Region 2) hospitals.As opposed to the previous registration process, and as the name suggests, bedside registration takes place in the post-natal maternity ward with clerks from the Medical Records Department filling up the newborn’s registration form at the patient’s ‘bedside’ before discharge.According to Nerica Bassoodeo, Health Management Information Systems (HMIS) Manager at the GPHC, since the former registration process was conducted following discharge of the patient, some parents would not return to register the birth or to complete registration if the process was started.“Some would wait until it’s necessary for the child to have a birth certificate… probably when they need to enroll for nursery school,” she informed.Statistics provided by the GPHC revealed that during a nine-month period prior to the implementation of the bedside registration process, only 69% of live deliveries occurring at the hospital were registered.The HMIS Manager stated that failure to register a child at birth not only impacts the child individually in later stages of life (as it relates to application for necessary documents such as passports) but is also detrimental to national planning,China Jerseys Wholesale, since registration information is essential in catering for effective disease surveillance and public education on a national level.“It assists governments in planning for social services such as education and health and is a basis for effective administration and good governance.”Since implementation, the records department, noting the need to have all babies who were delivered at the health facility registered,Cheap Jerseys From China, has been seeking all means by which to affiliate the public and expecting mothers about the new registrations process.Thus far, officials of the department have been holding talks aimed at educating mothers, from their prenatal stage, about the importance of bedside registration, so that when the time comes to have the process conducted, those mothers would be prepared.“We let them know that they need to select two names, a boy’s name and a girl’s name, to register for the birth. Also if they are legally married, they need to come with their marriage certificate and identification cards. In the case where the parents are legally married, the father does not need to be present to have his name inserted on the birth certificate. Some people feel that the father must be there,” Bassoodeo said.For common law relationships, however, she said that the father needs to be present along with the mother and has to present any form of picture identification.Bassoodeo admitted that even though the process is in its sixth month of implementation,NFL Jerseys Wholesale, most parents are not aware of the steps that are needed to be taken to have the birth of their child registered. She said that even with the wide circulation of posters, provided by the General Register Office in collaboration with UNICEF, to educate mothers on “what they need to walk with” to register the birth of the child, the process is completely new to some.As such, even though the department is doing its best to educate the new mothers, it has been difficult to win everyone over to the new process.“I guess it’s because with this generation the process is relatively new. And like any other culture that people are accustomed to, getting them to do things differently and to break away from what they are accustomed to doing is difficult,Man Utd 3rd Kit 18/19,” she opined.Highlighting some of the difficulties encountered, she said that a few mothers have been reluctant to have the registration done.“When the clerk calls on the mothers to register, some pretend they are not there, some leave conveniently and go to the washroom. Some say that they don’t have a name.”The undying commitment and patience of those in the Records Department is evident in dealing with these obstacles, since they have taken it upon themselves to compile “pink and blue” folders containing girls’ and boys’ names respectively for those uncertain parents.These are some of the little challenges that the department is trying to deal with. As these things arise, we see how best we can work along with the parents so they can come on board,” Bassoodeo saidIn spite of this, the department has reported a 99% improvement in registrations for live births over the period it has been implemented. The aim is to continue to provide the services and to educate new mothers on the timely manner in which to have their birth registration done while acting as an aid to national planning strategies.
