Abstract

Introduction: The allocation of human resources in obstetrics affects the quality of care provided and has perceived implications for the safety of care. It is essential to have specialized and adequate resources, so that midwives can guide their practice in order to provide quality care that ensures the safety and satisfaction of customers.  

Objective: To analyze the impact of midwives' appropriations on the quality of care provided in the Health Centers of Taiwan and Becora Health Center - Dili Timor-Leste.  

Methodology: The type of study is descriptive, analytical and cross-sectional, quantitative approach, the data collection instrument used was in the questionnaires applied in the field of investigation.  

Results:  To analyze the data obtained we recognize that the allocation of midwives is insufficient, in view of the   numbers pointed out by health organizations and experts in specialized nursing care, so they choose to perform the most urgent care, establish priorities in care, comply with the routines instituted and not perform some activities that allow them to move on to the next shifts.  

Conclusion: The safe allocation of health personnel, particularly midwives in East Timor, is not yet a reality, so we consider that this investigation is the beginning of this process, alerting to some data that show the needs of health care and which favor maternal and infant mortality rates. And we are aware of the difficulties and limitations, but in it emerge a set of work premises that evidence the need fora safe endowment, to raise the quality of health care and decrease the morbidity and mortality d and change of priorities in the maternal and child area.
