A case report is presented of a newborn who was seen by the paediatric nurse a Primary Care clinic, and whose parents had mental disabilities. They had been followed up for years by the social services in their area, due to difficulties and limitations in their personal, social and employment development. They were also living in unhealthy conditions, so in order to address the problem, a multidisciplinary team of professionals from different areas was formed. We prepared a standardised care plan based on the model of the basic needs of Virginia Henderson. Using taxonomies of the North American Nursing Diagnosis Association (NANDA), Nursing Outcomes Classification's (NOC) and Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC) "knowledge poor" and "parental impairment" diagnoses were made. The nursing and social work goals were to make an assessment, support and use comprehensive biopsychosocial family monitoring to enable the child to grow and develop in the best possible conditions, to monitor child protection and try to improve the living conditions of the home. The child and parents were initially monitored weekly and then monthly. The assessment showed an improvement in care: "background: infant care," "risk control: drug abuse" "child care: psychological security" and "execution of the role of parents." The joint and coordinated work of the various services involved was focused towards achieving the goals set, in order to give biopsychosocial care to the baby and family.

[Transport and storage of privately purchased vaccines].

Enferm Clin 2011 Mar-Apr;21(2):99-103. Epub 2011 Mar 21.

Objective: Describe the transport and storage of privately purchased vaccines.

Method: A descriptive cross-sectional observational study. We analysed all doses of pneumococcal conjugate vaccines, rotavirus and varicella acquired and administered between January-September 2009, in a Primary Care Health Centre (CAP) in an urban area.

Variables Studied: type of vaccine circuit used (circuit A: pharmacy-CAP, circuit B: pharmacy-home-CAP), time between purchase and administration, receipt of information, mode of transport and storage at home. Data collection by questionnaire. Statistical strategy: absolute and relative frequencies, Pearson Chi-square and Fisher exact statistics.

Results: Of a total sample of 148 doses, 115 (77.7%) were pneumococcal, 28 (18.9%), rotavirus and 5 (3.4%) varicella. Circuit A was used for 45.5% (67) of the doses administered and 54.7% (81) used circuit B. Circuit A vaccine took less than an hour between their acquisition and administration in 89.6% (60) of cases and those using Circuit B took longer than 7 days in 14.8% (12) cases. A total of 85.1% (111) of parents received information on transportation and storage of the vaccine. Refrigerated means of transport were not used for 85.1% (57) of Circuit A vaccines or for 93.8% (76) in B. The refrigerator door was used to store 59.3% (48) of the vaccines.

Conclusions: The pneumococcal vaccine was the most given. Circuit B is more commonly used. Most parents received information about the transportation and storage of vaccines, although more than half were transported non-refrigerated and kept in the refrigerator door.
