Re: Miss Akira Annaisha,
I am referring Miss Akira, a 5 - year - old girl, who is recuperating from acute meningoencephalitis, requires follow-up care and assessment from your facility following her discharge today.
She was admitted on 15 July 2019 in emergency department with acute meningoencephalitis as a result of mumps. She was treated
conservatively. Currently, she has attained full recovery and ready to be discharged.
She was migrated from Japan to Australia in April 2019 with her parents and one younger sister. Their first language is Japanese. Her mother, Mrs Emiko has low proficiency of English. However, her father, Mr Hikaro can speak moderately as he attends night classes for English. According to the subjective data, both the children were vaccinated but their records got misplaced. In addition, their parents are unaware about MMR vaccine. Please note, they does not have any family doctor in Australia.
Given the above, it would be greatly appreciated if you could arrange an interpreter for the family and educate them regarding the need of MMR vaccine for both the children and monitor them for compliance of vaccination schedule. Worthy to note, appointments for neurological assessment once in a month for the next three months have been arranged.
Should you have further queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.
