Clinic Day 3 – Maranatha
Today the team got into the groove and it was a smooth day. We left in good time and arrived at the Maranatha church – one large room.
We got the flow down and started with registration with Irika and Alba. Next was the nurses triage- with Shannon, Melanie, Jeannie, Lee Anne and Kristen.
Community outreach visits were made by Natasha, Melissa, Melanie and Mike.
Luke was on glasses.
Lori did everything ha ha.
Dr Bai and Dr Christina at the MD station and Joe, Linda and Terrisita were at the pharmacy.
Flouride was by Lasha, Andrea and Kelli and they saw 335 kids!
Carla headed off to Cabarete with the dental hygienists.
We did have some interesting cases- Kelli had a deaf child that they had to sign the instructions – but they were able to communicate.
Natasha was in the community and had a burn from some cream that she had put on her legs. We dressed her wounds and gave her supplies and tensors.
Melissa had an 8-month-old baby with a serious ear infection that was draining and referred on to Dr Bai- he said he had never seen a child this young with such a serious infection- treated with antibiotics.
The team got home in good time and had a Mexican buffet. In the evening we were well represented at Karaoke!
