Newborns, the second time

At the beginning of 2020, we collaborated with the “Children’s Heart” Association and Gojo Central Europe in a social responsibility project that came to life by donating materials for hygiene and disinfection to the Newborn Intensive Care Unit at the Marie Curie Hospital in Bucharest. Thus, the consumption of the section was ensured for a period of 3 months. We purchased those products from Gojo Central Europe, which in turn contributed by partially supporting the project.

Dr. Cătălin Cîrstoveanu, the head and architect of the neonatal intensive care unit, was personally involved in this collaboration. After the period in which we collected and prepared all the components and materials, he was with us on the day of the project implementation. Practically, for 4 hours, we had supervised access to the section, during which time we installed, in all strategic points, wall and bed supports, where we integrated soap and disinfectant dispensers. Other types of disinfectants were also offered, such as “portable” disinfectants for medical staff and parents.

With this donation, the neonatal intensive care unit changes from isopropyl alcohol-based disinfectants to plant-based ethanol disinfectants. They have the advantage of sustainability, being environmentally friendly, because they are made of natural raw materials. In addition, due to their neutral pH, they have a high degree of comfort and superior compatibility with the skin, including for those with increased sensitivity. Medical staff thus allows themselves a higher frequency in the use of disinfectants. Another advantage is the transition from a manual, empirical dosing system, using open vials, to an electronically controlled one, in which the quantities released, from sealed vials, are now calculated for maximum consumption efficiency.

The donated products are part of the personal hygiene category for medical spaces and are recognized worldwide, because they belong to the top brands GOJO and PURELL. These are soaps and disinfectants, used for hands and skin.

Marie Curie’s neonatal intensive care unit has a capacity of 27 beds and is inspired by the best counterpart in the world – Iowa University Hospital, USA. With a completely new concept in caring for newborns, this section has contributed to reducing neonatal mortality from 70-80% in the ’90s to 13-15% today, given a much more serious approach to pathologies. Admissions are now made in a modern formula, through the website and are accessible to all patients, in the order of their introduction. Emergencies have priority.

We intend to continue this collaboration, within our areas of expertise, namely IT and communications infrastructure, video surveillance systems, digital display and IT security. The high level of technology installed in the neonatal intensive care unit is an important factor that contributes to the success of the exceptional team led by Dr. Cătălin Cîrstoveanu.

The donation made by Netland Computers and Gojo Central Europe is also a signal addressed to the general public, in the idea of ​​stimulating other companies or individuals to participate, in turn, in the effort to increase the chance of life of newborns in Romania. Although neonatal mortality in Romania is declining, our country is still in first place in Europe in this regard. “Children’s Heart” Association is an active factor in this fight, its goal being to help children with medical problems, especially heart diseases, as Robert Miklos, the association’s representative, says: “We refuse to see little ones unwittingly resigned. That is why we strive and make every effort to give a chance to many children condemned by the weaknesses of the society in which they were born.”
