Lo siguiente se basa en las pautas del Centro para el Control de Enfermedades (CDC) a partir del 17 de mayomarzo de 2020.

¿Está mi hijo en riesgo de tener coronavirus (COVID-19)?

La mayoría de los niños parecen tener casos leves de coronavirus (COVID-19). Entonces, si su hijo tiene fiebre, tos, secreción nasal o diarrea, será difícil saber si tiene o no coronavirus. La mala noticia es que las personas mayores parecen estar peor con este virus. Aunque puede ser difícil, hacer que los niños pasen menos tiempo con los abuelos puede ayudar a las personas mayores de su familia a mantenerse más saludables. Si los abuelos o adultos mayores de 60 años son los principales cuidadores de su hijo, haga todo lo posible para mantenerlos seguros: lávese las manos constantemente, limite el contacto de su hijo con personas fuera del hogar y cuando salgan del hogar, trate de evitar que los niños se toquen. cosas y luego tocar sus caras.

Los CDC recomiendan usar máscaras faciales (para los mayores de 2 años). Deben usarse en entornos públicos donde otras medidas de distanciamiento social son difíciles de mantener (por ejemplo, supermercados y farmacias) especialmente en áreas de transmisión comunitaria significativa. Se cree que 1 de cada 4 pacientes con Coronavirus puede no tener ningún síntoma, por lo que para prevenir la propagación, las máscaras pueden ser de gran ayuda.

Si siente que su hijo tiene síntomas (fiebre, tos, falta de aliento) y ha estado en contacto con alguien que sabe que tiene COVID-19 o si vive o ha estado recientemente en un área con propagación continua de COVID-19, buscar atención médica.

Puede buscar más información en su departamento de salud local, incluyendo cuántos casos de coronavirus han ocurrido en su área local y dónde buscar atención si tiene un riesgo medio o alto de coronavirus. La mayoría de los consultorios médicos habituales no pueden realizar pruebas de detección de coronavirus en este momento, por lo que es importante consultar primero el sitio web de su departamento de salud local para averiguar a dónde ir.

¿Debo ver a alguien sobre la enfermedad de mi hijo?

Los niños a menudo tienen resfriados y tos leves que puede tratar con seguridad en casa. Para limitar la posibilidad de que su hijo contraiga el coronavirus, le recomendamos que llame a su médico antes de ir a la clínica. Si no tiene un médico, llame a su clínica local, centro de atención de urgencia o sala de emergencias antes de ir, ya que pueden ayudarlo por teléfono en lugar de una visita en persona.

Si su hijo está inscrito en una escuela que ofrece el servicio Hazel desde su casa, puede registrarse para hacer una pregunta a los médicos de Hazel hoy.

Si no ve su escuela en el enlace de inicio de sesión, envíenos una nota para informarnos que está interesado en tener este servicio disponible a través de su escuela en el futuro.

Recuerde, si su hijo tiene problemas para respirar, tiene labios azules, no está actuando normalmente o se ve muy cansado (letárgico), o cualquier cosa que lo preocupe mucho, llévelo a la sala de emergencias de inmediato o llame al 911.

Hazel gets students the right support quickly
During the pandemic, a high school student was having a hard time coping. He was sad about COVID-19 impacting his senior year, and he was worried about the state of the world. The student was also struggling with some personal conflicts, and he felt he didn't have the right support at home.

After discussing his feelings, a Hazel doctor connected him with resources that he described as “life-changing.” He was very grateful and shared that he didn't know where to go for help before Hazel.

Hazel expands Health Services at school
A child came into the health center with a sprained wrist. The school nurse helped her ice the injury, but she was still in pain. A Hazel doctor helped the nurse put the student’s wrist in a splint and gave her over-the-counter medicine to help relieve the pain.

The school nurse expressed how grateful she was that Hazel could help her care for the child. She shared that before Hazel, she could not give medication to students, and the health office did not have splints available. She thanked Hazel for helping her do more for students in need of care.

Hazel is convenient and fast for families
A mother noticed her son was getting low on his asthma medication. She tried to schedule a visit with his doctor to refill his prescription, but all of the available appointments required her to take off from work, and her son would need to miss school. She needed to get her son to the doctor so he wouldn't run out of medicine, so she reached out to Hazel.

Hazel was able to see her son and send the refill to a local pharmacy within one day. The mother was happy that there was no need to interrupt school or work to get her son to a doctor for his medicine. She was also amazed at how easy and fast the entire process was.

Parent Story
Shortly after COVID-19 began, a student began to develop tics. Her parents took her to a neurologist, but they wanted to get her into counseling as well. The student’s mother was having a hard time finding answers to her questions and didn’t know where to start the process, so she turned to Hazel.

The Hazel doctor listened as the mother shared her concerns and frustrations. Hazel reassured her that they would find the right services for her child. After the initial visit, the Hazel doctor partnered with the school counselor and the student’s mother to identify resources and counseling services that are a good fit.

A physical health visit leads to an important discovery
A student came into the nurse’s office because his vision went blurry. The Hazel doctor looked at his eyes, but he did not see any injury. As he asked him questions about his symptoms, he started to sense that he was down about something. After a few minutes, the student shared that he was really sad because his mom was recently diagnosed with cancer. He explained that he feels worried, and it’s hard for him to focus.

Hazel called home, and the student’s mother confirmed her diagnosis. They discussed how to help manage the child’s stress, and Hazel offered to connect the child with counseling resources through the school. The mother was very grateful for the guidance and was eager to get her child help during a stressful time.
