Abstract

The current COVID-19 pandemic makes us live in a difficult and unprecedented time. With each passing day, the care of the health team itself is essential. Not only physical care, but also mental health. The authors describe their experience in disseminating recommendations through short videos that help professionals to maintain an objective view of the reality they are experiencing. SOBRAMFA team, integrated by doctors and educators, provided a fourth month follow up monitoring COVID 19 patients in two community hospitals and in several nursing homes entrusted to take care for. Thus, tabulating daily the evolution of patients - the hospitalized, the deceased and, very importantly, the discharge of the recovered - provides a sense of reality. The real and active presence of us, SOBRAMFA physicians, with the ability to lead the health team and to communicate with families, patients and fellow doctors portrays an effective attitude that shapes a new business model and a posture of excellence, which is suitable to different clinical settings.

Keywords

Resumo

A atual pandemia COVID-19 nos faz viver em uma época difícil e sem precedentes. Cada dia que passa, o cuidado da própria equipe de saúde é fundamental, não apenas cuidados físicos, mas também saúde mental. Os autores descrevem sua experiência na divulgação de recomendações por meio de vídeos que auxiliam os profissionais a manter uma visão objetiva da realidade que estão vivenciando. A equipe da SOBRAMFA, integrada por médicos e educadores, fez um acompanhamento ao longo de quatro meses dos pacientes com COVID 19 em dois hospitais comunitários e em vários residenciais de idosos a eles confiados. Deste modo, tabulando diariamente a evolução dos pacientes - os hospitalizados, os falecidos e, muito importante, a alta dos recuperados - proporciona um sentido de realidade. A presença real e ativa dos médicos da SOBRAMFA, com capacidade de liderar a equipe de saúde e de se comunicar com familiares, pacientes e colegas médicos mostra uma atitude efetiva que configura um novo modelo de negócios e uma postura de excelência, aplicável aos diferentes cenários clínicos.
