LACASA MASERI, A.; LACASA MASERI, S.  y  LEDESMA ALBARRAN, J. M.. Who goes with patients to the pediatrician?: The accompanying person of pediatric patients in primary care. Rev Pediatr Aten Primaria [online]. 2012, vol.14, n.55, pp.217-224. ISSN 1139-7632.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4321/S1139-76322012000400006.

Introduction: today, cultural changes may have changed the usual pattern of the mother as the accompanying person in the pediatric office. Objetives: descriptive analysis of the current situation in the pediatrics office. Material and methods: Las Delicias Health Center (health district of Malaga). Selected sample of 250 patients between the periods 1-15 July and 15-30 September, 2011. Results: in most cases (54.8%), the mother stands as the main accompanying person, appearing both parents in the consultation in 16.4% of cases. The figure of the grandparents is of special significance when the mother is an active worker. Most consultations were on-demand by appointment (82.4%), for acute symptoms, with symptoms lasting less than 3 days in most cases (59.2%). Discussion: the mother is presented as the main accompanying person in most cases. The father or grandparents will be present in front of social-cultural factors, mainly active employment status of the mother.
