Hopital Albert Schweitzer news

Please share with your contacts that Hopital Albert Schweitzer in Deschapelles is fully functioning and we have received 500+ trauma cases since Tuesday from PauP. We have the same needs you mentioned for the PauP hospitals and we also could use 2 trauma surgeons today. I can send transport – we have housing and 3 functioning ORs. Spine specialist would be most helpful

    I have a friend who works for a hospital in Haiti – Sacre Coeur in Milot, 75 miles North of Port au Prince. The hospital is not damaged. It has room for 100 patients, with over 20 Haitian doctors onsite including a medical trauma team and an orthopedic team arriving today. Helicopters can land very close to us, only ONE landed yesterday with 4 patients! People are dying in the streets AND in the hospitals in Port au Prince. We have a full-service hospital with two ORs and are NOT being utilized.We have an ambulance ready.When our staff hear a helicopter they are at the field immediately to receive patients but they are not arriving!! If any of you have contacts in the media or with organisations who could potentially get the word out about our hospital and our efforts to help please, please do so! The clock is ticking and so many lives are being lost. Our website is http://www.crudem.org

    Hey Dr. Smith. Can we use your blog for updates in the paper? Or would you be willing to write updates? I figured you won’t have the time to write something, but I’d love to at least be able to use your blog entries and link the blog to our web site at http://www.chieftain.com. Please let me know – James
