II. Learning/Insights: • Oriented from the different facilities of the RHU. • I learned one of the primary levels of health care which was provided by the RHU to patients like prevention of pneumonia through pneumococcal vaccination. • Secondary level of prevention was also applied in the RHU like PPD( Purified Protein Derivative) testing. In able to provide PPD testing it is needed to have at least 5 children to avoid wastage of PPD. • Learned a precaution of DMPA injection which is elevated blood pressure. III. Issues/Concerns: • We cited that there were medications that were funded by the local government were less than 6 months before its expiration date. IV. Recommendations: • I recommend that whenever that there is a free time for the utility, they will make a list of the expiration date of the medications to prioritize the “first in, first out” so that every medications will count for the healthcare of the patients of Balayan.
