WE GOT A C-ARM to take xrays!! Such a valuable piece of equipment.
Small teams of 3-4 people went out and made rounds in the small out lying villages today. They basically went tent to tent to see if anyone needed medical attention.
The 31 pallets of supplies will arrive tomorrow.
A little boy (pictured above) was dropped off at the gate today and has meningitis. He was taken to the USS to get eye surgery he desperately needed! He was also diagnosed with a 1 in more then a million disease…xerdeapigmentosa. It’s a tropical disease.
Dr. Matt Bush, ER doctor, sees about 60 patients a day at the clinic. That’s a good amount of patients for an ER clinic. Nice work Dr. Bush!
Long Term Plan:
To work with MOH to set up a prosthesis clinic in the coming months. Thousands have lost limbs here in Haiti and manual work is a huge lifestyle. The population would greatly benefit from this type of mission. PT and prosteticians would run the clinic along with trained doctors.
