UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE (UHC), ALSO REFERRED TO AS KALUSUGAN PANGKALAHATAN (KP) is the provision to every Filipino of the highest possible quality of health care that is accessible, efficient, equitably distributed, adequately funded, fairly financed, and appropriately used by an informed and empowered public

UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE (UHC), ALSO REFERRED TO AS KALUSUGAN PANGKALAHATAN (KP The Aquino administration puts it as the availability and accessibility of health services and necessities for all Filipinos. It is a government mandate aiming to ensure that every Filipino shall receive affordable and quality health benefits.This involves providing adequate resources health human resources, health facilities, and health financing.

UHCS THREE THRUSTS 1) Financial risk protection through expansion in enrollment and benefit delivery of the National Health Insurance Program (NHIP); 2) 2) Improved access to quality hospitals and health care facilities; and 3) 3) Attainment of health-related Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

FINANCIAL RISK PROTECTION

Protection from the financial impacts of health care is attained by making any Filipino eligible to enroll, to know their entitlements and responsibilities, to avail of health services, and to be reimbursed by PhilHealth with regard to health care expenditures.

MPROVED ACCESS TO QUALITY HOSPITALS AND HEALTH CARE FACILITIES Improved access to quality hospitals and health facilities shall be achieved in a number of creative approaches. First, the quality of government-owned and operated hospitals and health facilities is to be upgraded to accommodate larger capacity, to attend to all types of emergencies, and to handle non- communicable diseases.

The Health Facility Enhancement Program (HFEP) shall provide funds to improve facility preparedness for trauma and other emergencies. The aim of HFEP was to upgrade 20% of DOH- retained hospitals, 46% of provincial hospitals, 46% of district hospitals, and 51% of rural health units(RHUs) by end of 2011.

ATTAINMENT OF HEALTH-RELATED MDGS


Further efforts and additional resources are to be applied on public health programs to reduce maternal and child mortality, morbidity and mortality from Tuberculosis and Malaria, and incidence of HIV/AIDS. Localities shall be prepared for the emerging disease trends, as well as the prevention and control of non- communicable diseases. The organization of Community Health Teams (CHTs) in each priority population area is one way to achieve health-related MDGs. CHTs are groups of volunteers, who will assist families with their health needs, provide health information, and

ATTAINMENT OF HEALTH-RELATED MDGS


RNheals nurses will be trained to become trainers and supervisors to coordinate with community-level workers and CHTs. By the end of 2011, it is targeted that there will be 20,000 CHTs and 10,000 RNheals. Another effort will be the provision of necessary services using the life cycle approach. These services include family planning, ante-natal care, delivery in health facilities, newborn care, and the Garantisadong Pambata package. Better coordination among government agencies, such as DOH, DepEd, DSWD, and DILG, would also be essential for the achievement of these MDGs.

FIELD HEALTH SERVICE INFORMATION SYSTEM (FHSIS)


It is a network of information It is intended to address the short term needs of DOH and LGU staff with managerial or supervisory functions in facilities and program areas. It monitors health service delivery nationwide.

OBJECTIVES OF FHSIS
To provide summary data on health service delivery and selected program accomplishment indicators at the barangay, municipality/ city, and district, provincial, regional and national levels. To provide data which when combined with data from other sources, can be used for program monitoring and evaluation purposes. To provide a standardized, facility-level data base that can be accessed for more in-depth studies. To minimize the recording and reporting burden at the service delivery level in order to allow more time for patient care and promote activities.

IMPORTANCE OF FHSIS
Helps local government determine public health priorities. Basis for monitoring and evaluating health program implementation. Basis for planning, budgeting, logistics and decision making at all levels. Source of data to detect unusual occurrence of a disease. Needed to monitor health status of the community. Helps midwives in following up clients. Documentation of RHM/PHN day to day activities.

COMPONENTS OF FHSIS 1. 2. 3. 4. Individual Treatment Record (ITR) Target Client List (TCL) Summary Table The Monthly Consolidation Table (MCT)

INDIVIDUAL TREATMENT RECORD (ITR)


The fundamental building block or foundation of the Field Health Service Information System is the INDIVIDUAL TREATMENT RECORD. This is a document, form or piece of paper upon which is recorded the date, name, address of patient, presenting symptoms or complaint of the patient on consultation and the diagnosis (if available), treatment and date of treatment.

TARGET CLIENT LIST (TCL)


The Target Client Lists constitute the second building block of the FHSIS and are intended to serve several purposes First is to plan and carry out patient care and service delivery. Such lists will be of considerable value to midwives/nurses in monitoring service delivery to clients in general and in particular to groups of patients identified as targets or eligibles for one or another program of the Department

TARGET CLIENT LIST (TCL) The second purpose of Target Client Lists is to facilitate the monitoring and supervision of service delivery activities. The third purpose is to report services delivered. The fourth purpose of the Target Client Lists is to provide a clinic-level data base which can be accessed for further studies

TARGET CLIENT LISTS TO BE MAINTAINED IN THE FHSIS


1. Target Client List for Prenatal Care 2. Target Client List for Post-Partum Care 3. Target Client List of Under 1 Year Old Children 4. Target Client List for Family Planning 5. Target Client List for Sick Children 6. NTP TB Register 7. National Leprosy Control Program Form 2-Central Registration Form

SUMMARY TABLE
The Summary Tables is a form with 12-month columns retained at the facility (BHS) where the midwife records monthly all relevant data. The Summary Table is composed of: (1) Health Program Accomplishment this can serve as proof of accomplishments to show LGU officials whenever they visit the facility. (2) Morbidity Diseases the source of ten leading causes of morbidity for the municipality/city. This summary table will help the nurse and MHO to get the monthly trend of diseases.

THE MONTHLY CONSOLIDATION TABLE (MCT) The Consolidation Table is an essential form in the FHSIS where the nurse at the RHU records the reported data per indicator by each BHS or midwife. This is the source document of the nurse for the Quarterly Form. The Consolidation Table shall serve as the Output Table of the RHU as it already contains listing of BHS per indicator.

FHSIS REPORTING These are summary data that are transmitted or submitted on a monthly, quarterly and on annual basis to higher level. The source of data for this component is dependent on the records.

THE MONTHLY FORM


Program Report (M1) The Monthly Form contains selected indicators categorized as maternal care, child care, family planning and disease control. Morbidity Report (M2) The Monthly Morbidity Disease Report contains a list of all diseases by age and sex. The Midwife uses the form for the monthly consolidation report of Morbidity Diseases and is submitted to the PHN for quarterly consolidation.

THE QUARTERLY FORM


Program Report (Q1) The Quarterly Form is the municipality/city health report and contains the three-month total of indicators categorized as maternal care, family planning, child care, dental health and disease control Morbidity Report (Q2) The PHN uses the form for the Quarterly Consolidation Report of Morbidity Diseases to consolidate the Monthly Morbidity Diseases taken from the Summary Table.

THE ANNUAL FORMS (A-BHS, A1, A2 & A3)


ABHS Form is the report of midwife which contains data on demographic, environmental and natality. The report of nurse at the RHU/MHC are the Annual Form 1 which is the report on vital statistics: demographic, environmental, natality and mortality. Annual Form 2 is the report that lists all diseases and their occurrence in the municipality/city. The report is broken down by age and sex. Annual Form 3 is the report of all deaths occurred in the municipality/city. The report is also broken down by age and sex.

USE OF INITIAL DATA BASE (IDB):


1. Family Chart Structure: Nuclear -Father, mother, children Extended (3rd generation)-Relatives staying with the family Multi-generational extended-apo sa tuhod or apo sa talampakan Dyad -Husband & wife only (childless couple) Blended -widow married another widow & have children Gay -Same sex living together Matriarchal -Mother is the decision maker Patriarchal -Father is the decision maker Communal -different families forming a community

2. Socio-economic: poverty level, educational attainment & nature of occupation of members of the family (sources of income) 3. Socio-cultural: different nature of religion 4. Home environment: assessment according to ES, treatment of garbage, preparation of food, availability of toilet, water & food sanitation, sources of diseases

4. Medical history: history of certain disease, family member with disease 5. Resources available in community for use by the family: 5 Generalized Ms in resources available in community: Man/Manpower Money Machine Materials Methods

DEFINE THE PROBLEM AFTER IDENTIFYING IT ACCORDING TO NATURE Health Deficit (HD) - if identified problem is an abnormality, illness or disease, theres a gap/difference between normal status (ideal, desirable, expected) & actual status (the outcome/result/problem encountered on that actual day)

Health Threat (HT) -any condition or situation which will be conducive to health alteration, health interference & health disturbance. Foreseeable Crisis (FC) -stress points, anything which is anticipated/ expected to become a problem

Jobless Father Suffering from TB th Wife is pregnant for the 8 time 2 y/o youngest child lacks immunization rd 9 y/o eldest child is 3 degree malnourished Poor environmental sanitation

III. PLANNING Four (4) Standard Steps: Prioritization -start if there are multiple identified problems Formulation of objectives -planning a procedure will start here if there is only one problem Developing strategies of action Formulation of evaluation tools for the identified strategy developed

CRITERIA IN IDENTIFYING THE PROBLEM


Criteria I. Nature: assess by PHW Health deficit (HD) Health threat (HT) Foreseeable Crisis (FC) II. Modifiability Easily Intermediate (moderate) Not modifiable III. Preventive Potential Highly Moderate Low IV. Salience of the Problem Problem needing urgent attention Problem not needing urgent attention Not a felt problem Score 3 2 1 2 1 0 3 2 1 2 1 0 Weight 1

Steps: a. Decide on a score b. Score ----------------Highest Score b. Get the sum total of all the scores Interpretation: Perfect score=5, if score nearing 5 then prioritize the problem Criteria 1, 2 & 3 has to be assessed objectively by the health worker Criteria 4 has to be assessed by the perception of the family x weight

Compute for 3rd Degree Malnutrition

IV. INTERVENTION Is the capacity to provide management Is the professional phase of nursing process Is the time when the PHN executes the standard function of an RN Three (3) Standard Functions of RN: Dependent-giving of medicines Independent-monitor, assess, provide, educate Interdependent-referrals

V. EVALUATION
Three (3) Things to be evaluated: SPO 1. Structure of program & activity -what articles, equipments, supplies are utilized 2. Process utilized -steps used 3. Outcome of activity -results can be: Desirable -to be implemented, advocated, strengthen Undesirable -to be avoided Two (2) Aspects to be evaluated in the Outcome: Quality -characteristic or kind of outcome; no numerical value, not measurable Quantity -from the word quantum, with numerical value, measurable

4. HEALTH EDUCATION Adjust on the level of understanding of the community Return demonstration is the best way of teaching Focus on the KSA Respect of the custom and tradition

5. COLLABORATING

6. PHASE OUT

EPIDEMIOLOGY
is the pattern of occurrences & distribution of diseases, defects & deaths
Patterns 2 Population in Distribution Susceptible Immune (at risk to develop, acquire (those that did not or experience the disease) experience the disease, usually individuals develop resistance against the disease) 80% (more than 50%) 20% 50% 50% 20% 80% ---------

Epidemic Endemic Sporadic Pandemic

EPIDEMIC
Greater than 50% of populations are susceptible or less immune individual Greater % of the population is affected by the occurring disease Example: Health worker reports that Community Lanting has an epidemic of measles affecting children less than 7 years old Total susceptible population: 3000 Children affected by measles: 1750 1750

ENDEMIC
The disease occurs regularly, habitually, constantly affecting the population group 2 Local Endemic Diseases: where causative agent is available on those places Schistosomiasis: Samar, Leyte, Mindoro, Davao Malaria: Palawan & Mindanao-reasons why its prevalent Forested areas Surrounded by bodies of water

SPORADIC The pattern of occurrence is on & off where: On=available causative agent Off=no available causative agent Its intermittent (unpredictable) in occurrence Disease occurs only if theres a susceptible host like in rabies

PANDEMIC Worldwide, international, universal, global in occurrence like in AIDS, Hepatitis B, PTB, measles, mumps, diphtheria, pneumonia SARS is categorized by WHO as an OUTBREAK only because out of 191 nations, 33 countries are reported to have it.

HOME VISIT Is a PROFESSIONAL contact between PHN & the family The services provided is an extension of the Health Service Agency (Health Center)

OBJECTIVES OF HOME VISIT Assessment Nursing Care Treatment Health Education Referral (if care fails)

PRIORITIES (IN THE CARE): TO PREVENT CROSS CONTAMINATION


1. Newborn 2. Post partum 3. Pregnant mothers 4. Morbid cases The families need the assistance of the health center thats why home visit was done to the family The person who makes the home visit is rendering services on behalf of the health center

PHASES OF HOME VISIT: 1. Planning Starts at the health center Makes a study on the status of the family Statement of the problem Formation of objective 2. Socialization first activity is to establish rapport & to gain the trust of the family

PHASES OF HOME VISIT: 3. Activity


Intervention/Professional Phase Opportunity to provide or extend health services Standard Role of the Nurse: Independent, Dependent and Interdependent To be effective, come in complete uniform (also bring a long umbrella with pointed end which serve as protection)

4. Summarization - ability to put into record & report (orally) about the outcome of the activity

PUBLIC HEALTH BAG: Indispensable tool that should be organize to save time & effort and to prevent cross infection & contamination

GUIDING PRINCIPLES IN THE USE OF PUBLIC HEALTH BAG: Content -should be prepared by the one who will make home visit Note: BP Apparatus is kept separately from PHN bag Cleaning The inner part of the bag should be clean & sterile Should be done every after home visit Never endorse the bag

GUIDING PRINCIPLES IN THE USE OF PUBLIC HEALTH BAG: Contamination The less one opens the bag, the lesser chance of contamination In general, the bag is open 3x: Putting out materials for hand washing Putting out materials used for nursing care Returning all what have been used

GUIDING PRINCIPLES IN THE USE OF PUBLIC HEALTH BAG: Care of Communicable Case(s) - should be disinfected with the use of 70% isopropyl alcohol or Lysol which should be done at the health center and not at home

STRATEGIES:
A. Provision of Regular and Quality Maternal Care Services Regular and quality pre-natal care hx-taking, utilization of HBMR (Home-Based Mothers Record) as a guide in the identification of risk factors PE: weight, height, BP-taking Perform head-to-toe assessment, abdominal exam Tetanus Toxoid Immunization Fe supplementation: given from 5th mo. of pregnancy to two months postpartum (100-120 mg orally/day for 210 days) Laboratory exam: Heat-acetic acid test. Benedicts test Oral/Dental exam

Pre-natal counseling Provision of safe, delivery care all birth attendants shall ensure clean and safe deliveries at the faciltiies (RHUs/hospitals) at-risk pregnancies and mothers must be immediately referred to the nearest institution

Provision of quality postpartum care Proper schedule of follow-up must be followed: 1st postpartum visit for home deliveries must be done within 24 hours after delivery 2nd, done at least 1 week after delivery 3rd, done 2-4 weeks thereafter Attendants must be aware of the early signs, symptoms and complications. They should follow the 3 CLEANS: CLEAN Hands CLEAN Surface CLEAN Cord

C. Improvement of the health personnels capabilities on newborn care, midwifery thru trainings. Note: All deliveries should be done in health care facilities ONLY D. Improvement on the quality of care at the First Referral Level Orientation, training should be done on the use of proper filling-up of HBMR card Proper referrals/endorsements must be done for future If-ups E. Prevention of unwanted pregnancies through family planning services F. Prevention and management of STDs

G. Promotion of Appropriate health practices H. Upgrade reporting services I. Mobilize political commitment and community involvement to provide support to basic health care delivery

GOALS: A. Safe Pregnancy Right age to be pregnant=20-35 years old, not less than 20 & not more than 35 Right interval of pregnancy=once in 2 or 3 years Home Base Mothers Record (HBMR): the record used for care of mothers in CHN

Laboratory Examinations: Benedicts Test: test for sugar in the urine; test for diabetes Heat test tube with 5 cc of Benedicts Solution (blue) in the burner then add 3-5 gtts of urine (amber yellow) then heat again. Observe for the change in color: Blue Green : (-) sugar in urine : trace of sugar in urine +1 +2 +3 +4 + ++ +++ ++++

Yellow : traces of sugar in urine Orange : more traces of sugar in urine Brick Red : surely diabetic

Laboratory Examinations: Acetic Acid Test: test for albumin in urine; test for Pregnancy Induced HPN Collect urine in test tube, heat it in burner then add 3-5 gtts of acetic solution (clear white). Observe for change in color: If it remains clear: (-) CHON or albumin in urine If it turns cloudy: (+) CHON=proteinuria

POLICIES:
1. Non coercive (give freedom of choice) 2. Integration of Family Planning in all Curricular Program: LOI 47 DECS states that Family Planning is to be integrated in all school curricular programs, either baccalaureates or nonbaccalaureates, enrolled separately as one unit 3. Multi-Sectoral Approach: establish relationship with other agencies which can either be: Intrasectoral Intersectoral-Local or International (WHO, Unicef, USAID, Japhiego)

METHODOLOGIES:
Biological A. Basal Body Temperature (BBT) Get the temperature early morning before waking up which should be monitored daily at the same time There should be a sudden drop of temperature between 0.3-0.6C followed by an increase of temperature by 0.3-0.6C which means that the woman is fertile

B. Sympto-thermal C. Cervical Mucus Test Billings Method by Dr. Billing Spinnbarkheit (came from a German word Spinner which means to play with the cervical mucus with the finger) or Wet & Dry Method: Wet Cervical Mucus (Fertile): abundant, stretchy & transparent Dry Cervical Mucus (Safe & Not fertile): whitish, pasty & adhesive D. Calendar (Rhythm) Deleted already since 1998 because its not recommended for irregular cycle of menstruation Menstrual cycle should be regular; obtain 4-6 months cycle

E. Lactation Amenorrhea Method (LAM): RA 7600-Breastfeeding & Rooming In Law DOH organized Maternal & Child Family Health Institute (MCFHI) with the following members: All government hospitals Private hospitals (volunteer) Normal involution (uterus goes back to normal) of the uterus: after 45 days or 5-6 weeks or 1 months if not breastfeeding Frozen breast milk is to be put out of the freezer 2 hours before feeding ( Body of Ref: 2-3 days / Freezer: 3-4 months) Left over milk should be discarded & should not be re-preserved or re-frozen because it is already contaminated

METHODOLOGIES:
Temporary A. Chemical Oral Pills (Logentrol)-has low dose of estrogen & progesterone that inhibits ovulation Parenteral: Depot Medroxyprogesterone Acetate (DMPA)/Depoprovera- inhibits ovulation making women amenorrheic; 1991, DMPA was found to be causing cancer of the cervix 1994, DMPA is given IM 4x a year every 3 months (90 days interval)

Implants: Norplant-it inhibits ovulation effective for 5 years but seldom advocated for use because it is usually expensive; the client buys the device (consists of 5 capsules) & have it implanted at the health center by minor surgical incision in: upper inner arm because it is nearest to the brain external oblique thigh gluteal muscles

B. Mechanical: IUD Up to 10 years protection Cervical cap & Diaphragm Prevent the sperm to pass the cervix Works better with spermicide Wore 30 minutes before coitus and keep up to 6 hours after coitus Condom Most effective way to prevent STDs / STIs

METHODOLOGIES:
C. Behavioral Abstinence Withdrawal D. Permanent Vasectomy (reversible)-since year 2000 in the Philippines BLT

ENVIRONMENTAL SANITATION refers to all factors available in the environment affecting the health of the individual or population regulated by PD 856: Comprehensive Sanitation Code of the Philippines

ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH SERVICE (EHS) OF DOH IS RESPONSIBLE FOR Promotion of healthy environmental conditions & prevention of environmental related diseases through appropriate sanitation strategies Promotion & implementation of sanitation programs through the Department of Health Field Health Units Conceptualization of new programs/projects to contend with emerging environmentally related health problems

COMPONENTS:

Water Supply Sanitation Program Proper Excreta and Sewage Disposal Program Insect and Rodent Control Food and Sanitation Program Hospital Waste Management Program

1. WATER SUPPLY SANITATION PROGRAM

Potable Free from any particles that might cause illness to an individual

Ways to make Water Potable:


Boiling: minimum of 3 minutes to maximum of 10 minutes for drinking Sterilization: 30 minutes after the water starts to boil Filtration: makes use of filter paper or cotton cloth to separate solid particle from liquid if water comes from river

Coagulation/Flocculation: uses aluminum crystal (tawas) that collects or absorbs particles from liquid part & becomes slimy In 1 gallon of water, drop tawas (the size of magi cubes) & allow to stand for 6-8 hours Initially, water appears to be cloudy then after 6-8 hours of standing, the water becomes clear

Chlorination: uses 100% pure concentrated chlorine bought from botika or given free by health centers To prepare stock solution (SS): in 1 liter drinking water, add 1 tablespoon of concentrated chlorine which is potent for 3-4 months To prepare the chlorinated water: in 2 gallons of drinking water (10,000 ml=10 liters), add 1 tablespoon from the prepared stock solution & let it stand for 30 minutes to react with water

Fluoridation: adding fluoride to prevent dental caries (primary significance) & whitens enamel of teeth ( 2nd significance) Aeration: exposing drinking water in air to strengthen taste within 24 hours which is usually used in uphill areas where theres less or no pollution

3 TYPES OF APPROVED WATER SUPPLY AND FACILITIES Level I Point Source A protected well or a developed spring with an outlet but without a distribution system for rural areas where houses are thinly scattered.

3 TYPES OF APPROVED WATER SUPPLY AND FACILITIES Level II Communal faucet system or stand posts A system composed of a source, a reservoir, a piped distribution network and communal faucets, located at not more than 25 meters from the farthest house in rural areas where houses are clustered densely.

3 TYPES OF APPROVED WATER SUPPLY AND FACILITIES Level III Waterworks system or individual house connections A system with a source, a reservoir, a piped distributor network and household taps that is suited for densely populated urban areas.

2. PROPER EXCRETA AND SEWAGE DISPOSAL SYSTEM

3 TYPES OF APPROVED TOILET FACILITIES


Level 1 Non-water carriage toilet facility: - Pit latrines - Reed Odorless Earth Closet - Bored-hole - Compost Toilets requiring small amount of water to wash waste into receiving space - Pour flush - Aqua privies

Pit latrines most commonly observed in rural area has three components: the pit, a squatting plate and the super-structure types of pit include Antipolo type, a pit type of toilet provided with concrete floor and an elevated seat with a cover Ventilated Improved Pit or VIP, pit with a vent pipe Reed Odourless Earth Closet or ROEC, a pit completely displaced from the superstructure and connected to the squatting plate by a curved chute.

Bored Hole Latrine consists of relatively deep holes bored into the earth by mechanical or manual earth-boring equipment holes are about 10-18 inches in diameter and usually 15-35 feet deep. The hole is provided to facilitate squatting. Two types of bored-hole latrines are: Wet Type - when the hole penetrates ground water table or other strata. Dry Type - when he hole does not reach ground water table; fills up at a faster rate then than the wet type.

3 TYPES OF APPROVED TOILET FACILITIES Level 2 On site toilet facilities of the water carriage type with water sealed and flushed type with septic vault/tank disposal facilities.

3 TYPES OF APPROVED TOILET FACILITIES Level 3

Water carriage types of toilet facilities connected to septic tanks an/or to sewerage system to treatment plant.

THINGS TO CONSIDER IN CONSTRUCTING A TOILET FACILITY: At least 25 meters away from water sources at a lower elevation It should be within your financial capability It should be approved by the local health authorities

CARE AND MAINTENANCE OF YOUR TOILET FACILITY:


Water must be provided at all times. Use toilet paper Use lysol once a month for odor removal Clean the bowl by muriatic acid to remove the stains. Avoid depositing solid objects on the bowl to prevent clogging Always check your toilet if its clean Use plunger when clogging occurs. Dont use sticks or rods to avoid the breakage of the trap or the bowl.

3. PROPER SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT

refers to satisfactory methods of storage, collection and final disposal of solid wastes

SOURCES OF SOLID WASTE


Household Waste - these are wastes generated in or discharged from household including shops but excluding commercial activities Commercial Waste - restaurants, stationery shops, grocery shops or any commercial activity are the main sources of commercial waste. Market Waste - only refers to waste generated in or discharged from markets both for whole sale and retailing

SOURCES OF SOLID WASTE


Institutional Waste - these are wastes generated in government, state enterprise and private firm office. Street Sweeping Waste - these are wastes generated by the street sweeping cleansing service. River Waste - includes all the wastes generated by the river and creek cleansing Medical Waste - these are wastes generated in hospitals.

COMPONENTS OF SOLID WASTE


Garbage refers to left over vegetable, animal and fish material from kitchen and food establishments. These materials have the tendency to decay giving off foul odors and sometimes serve as food for flies and rats. Rubbish refers to waste materials such as bottles, broken glass, tin can, waste papers, discarded textile materials, porcelain wares, pieces of metal and other wrapping materials.

COMPONENTS OF SOLID WASTE


Ashes are left over from burning of wood and coal. Ashes may become a nuisance because of the dust associated with them. Stable manure is animal manure collected from stables. Dead animals like dead dogs, cats, rats, pigs, and chickens that are killed by cars and trucks on streets and public highways. They include small and large animals that died from disease.

COMPONENTS OF SOLID WASTE


Street sweeping includes dust, manure, leaves, cigarette buts, waste papers and other materials that are swept from streets. Night soil is human waste normally wrapped and thrown into sidewalks and streets. This also includes human waste from pail system of toilets. Yard cuttings includes leaves, branches, grass and other

SANITARY WAYS OF TREATING GARBAGE: Segregation-separating biodegradable from non biodegradable Collection-adherence to the proper collection time the City of Manila coordinates with Leonel Waste Management (a private firm which collects garbage) where the truck driver coordinates with the Barangay Chairman on the time they will collect garbage so dont bring out garbage before the collection time

WAYS OF DISPOSAL Household Burial Deposited in 1m x 1m deep pits covered with soil, located 25 m. away from water supply Open burning o Animal feeding o Composting o Grinding and disposal sewer

WAYS OF DISPOSAL
Community Sanitary landfill or controlled tipping Excavation of soil deposition of refuse and compacting with a solid cover of 2 feet Incineration Ecological Solid Waste Management: RA 9003- the use of incinerator approved in 2000 but was implemented in 2003 because of lack of funding to purchase

4. FOOD SANITATION PROGRAM

POLICIES: Food establishment are subject to inspection (approved of all food sources containers and transport vehicles) Comply with sanitary permit requirement Comply with updated health certificates for food handlers, helpers, cooks All ambulant vendors must submit a health certificate to determine present of intestinal parasite and bacterial infection

3 POINTS OF CONTAMINATION Place of production processing and source of supply Transportation and storage Retail and distribution points

5. HOSPITAL WASTE MANAGEMENT RA 4226-Hospital Licensure Act monitors the hospital license & proper management of wastes as well as renewal of license to operate

GOAL: To prevent the risk of contraction contracting nosocomial infection from type disposal of infectious, pathological and other wastes from hospital

COLOR CODING OF BIN TO KEEP WASTE: Green: Black : Yellow: Orange: wet waste dry waste infectious/pathological waste like blood, sputum, urine, feces & gauze toxic/hazardous waste
