PAIVA, Nelsi Salete Tonini; ANSELMI, Maria Luiza  and  SANTOS, Claudia Benedita dos. Project "To live in Cascavel": analysis of the information flow. Rev. Latino-Am. Enfermagem [online]. 2002, vol.10, n.4, pp.537-543. ISSN 1518-8345.

This study estimated and evaluated the time period (in days) concerning the flow of Live Birth Declarations (DNV) for high-risk newborns assisted by the Project "Living in Cascavel" - Paraná, Brazil, from 1996 to 1998, according to organization sites (hospital, epidemiological surveillance service, basic health unit). Three hundred and three declarations were analyzed, and in order to analyze the flow time of the DNVs, 95% confidence intervals were constructed for the mean population times (in days). Tthe results showed that the DNVs took 25 to 30 days to flow from the hospital until the moment when the home visit occurred. The care to high-risk newborns must take place in the shortest possible time; therefore, the flow time of DNVs found in this study, from birth until the home visit, may hinder the achievement of one of the objectives proposed by the project in question, which is the reduction of infant morbi-mortality in the municipality.
