Assessment is offered in Outpatients referred from:
- Emergency service of the hospital (Guard pediatrician)
- Primary Care (pediatricians from the CAPs assigned to Sabadell Hospital)
Early care is sought from the patient who has been seen in the Emergency Department, after 24-48 hours, to:
- Follow the evolution of the process that motivated your visit
- Evaluate response to treatment
- Receive and evaluate the result of a complementary exam that has been performed in the Emergency Department
- Make decisions about the need for further studies or follow-up
The pediatrician of Primary Care who thinks that his patient needs preferential care (between 1 and 7 days), can currently and from his field, arrange an appointment for the Pediatric Non-Urgent Pathology (PGNUP) by contacting the Hospital Admissions Service.
Even in extreme cases, you can contact the Emergency Department itself so that you can be cared for the next day. In any case, you must bring and present to Admissions the duly sealed flyer.
This attention can be requested as:
- Advice on a specific diagnostic suspicion, for confirmation.
- Requirement of complementary exams in the fastest way that can be achieved via Primary Care.
- Beginning of a higher level of pediatric care, which may or may not require a multidisciplinary approach, which is easier to achieve in the hospital setting.
