Clinic Day 1 – Ver Agua
The first clinic day is always a bit off as we try to figure out the team, the flow and work the kinks out.
We were all up and ready early- and piled into the two buses for the drive to Ver Agua- and set up in the high school. When we arrived, HAART staff had the rooms set up for us – we just needed to get our selves organized.
In the am we looked after the kids in the school….which was pretty light as most were healthy. It did give us a chance to get organized and ready for more patients.
The afternoon picked up a bit with people who needed more help and the team got the system flow down.
At 4 pm we loaded on the bus and headed for the hotel- then a swim, dinner and team meeting.
After dinner we talk about the day- what went well- what was not so good- things to do better tomorrow. Each “department” updates the group and we make plans for tomorrow.
We saw 257 patients – a good first day.
