Damn lice ...

Lice can not stand when I suspect that one of my sons may have put me furious, and it is not only the treatment, comb and so on is change the sheets, put washers (sheets, cushion covers, hats, blankets and others) and stress if someone else in the family can have them. A Christmas until my mother had to do the treatment ;)

Anyway, I realized that what happens is that we have many misconceptions around this parasite so nasty, so I have now proposed to clarify some points that will help us stay calm and achieve remove them.

- Head lice are insects that not jump or fly. Just walk quickly. They can move from one head to another very easily through contact or a garment.

- Lice are not a disease or pose risks to health.

- The nits not spread. Only lice.

- Lice can live out of a head up to 48 hours without feeding. So you can spread via cushions, pillows, chairs, etc.

- Lice yes they are waterproof. It can be spread by lice in a pool, but they do not swim but float and nits do not come out with water, as they are very attached to hair

- Lice are not spread by poor hygiene. They like both messy hair like clean. So we should not be ashamed of having lice and other of not communicating a case. We must prevent them from spreading. Anyone can get head lice.

- The girls are infected more lice not because they often have longer hair and yes because they often have more physical contact between friends.

- Lice animals are not transmitted to people.

They are translucent and its color varies from light to dark gray beige; depending on the color of hair, skin and where they live, this helps to camouflage. So they are not easy to detect. Unlike about nits are small, oval eggs and if they are not difficult to remove dead hair.

- The cause of itching caused by lice is not their bites and yes they inject saliva to feed them.

- The lice lotions do not serve to remove the nits.

Well, if you ever you live the experience, patience (not easy for kids to be quiet with wet hair while we look like monkeys ...) and encouragement, which ultimately eradicated forever !!

Large reduction in working hours to 12 years !!

From December 22, 2013 has been extended in four years time period in which the working men and women can apply for a reduction in working hours for childcare. Currently you can do until the child is 8 years old, while with the new standard will extend the term to 12 years, As happens in the administration.

So for all of those you have enjoyed in the reduction or want to do it soon, congratulations !!

As you know you can order anytime, no need to apply at your reinstatement after sick leave. Although it must be done 15 days in advance to be effective.

The advantages of reduced working hours are:

  • Work fewer hours
  • Have protection against unfair dismissal
  • Compensation for objective dismissal or voluntary termination of contract per Cobras as if you were full time
  • Unemployment cobras the same as if you were full time
  • You decide how many hours you work a week (you can reduce you one eighth to half the time)
  • You are entitled to the same number of public holidays (14) days of vacation and own business (if you have your agreement) than full-time. What happens is that each of these days you're going to charge the same percentage reduction on wages

Even if you go to charge less rough after reduction, keep in mind that sometimes you will not lose as much as you think because:

  • In some cases, payroll concepts should not be reduced as some diets or in most cases the surplus of transportation.
  • According reduction may lower the retention rate of income tax so the net would fall less than gross.
  • After reduction may need less transport costs or eating out.

For all this to be effective, it must be done right, and it is therefore advisable to seek professional counseling external or internal (union, etc.) to get to know your rights and obligations.

Early premature contact of mother and save 200 million

The Kangaroo Mother Method (MMC), based on the early contact between mother and newborn together with the BreastfeedingThey could mean for the Spanish healthcare savings of over 200 million euros, according to a study by the neonatologist Adolfo Gomez Papi.

The data are based on a study of Hospital Joan XXIII de Tarragona, Which has implemented Gomez Papí MMC, and concludes that this system has been achieved drastically reduce the income of preterm infants.

According to the pediatrician, who advocates abandoning industrialization of births in favor of the rights of the mother and newborn and generalize the implementation of MMC, this method babies three times more fat than those in incubator and are fewer days in the hospital, making a savings of 7,600 euros per admission.

The savings that could implement this method in Spain has been extrapolated from the latest data from the National Statistics Institute, which indicate that 30,000 infants were premature and did not exceed 32 weeks of gestation.

To Catalonia savings would more than 22 million, and the benefit is not only spending cuts but carries a significant benefit to the baby and family.
Papí Gómez remarked that the MMC along with breastfeeding, attachment entails faster, reducing stress in the newborn and the mother, baby better temperature, lower respiratory tract infections, a lower risk of deficit care in the neonatal period and even decreased morbidity among preterm infants.

According to Gomez Papí, we have seen that while anxiety and distress of parents of preterm infants reduces the fear is lost to address the special needs of these babies, they also feel more secure, and parents returned the role of caring for their children.

Although slowly being implemented in hospitals in Spain only 40.9% of the centers actively working in order to develop the MMC in its neonatal ICU, according to the latest report published in 2012 by the European Science Foundation Network, "Parent Involvement and Kangaroo Care in European neonatal ICU“.

Countries like the UK, Sweden, Denmark and the Netherlands have recorded a 100% acceptance of this system in hospitals, 73% in France and in Italy and has achieved a 80% penetration in NICU services .
