the Hôpital Evangelique le Pionnier needs some help.
We always need short term and long term help to keep this hospital running and as the end of this year approaches the situation becomes more dire.
two doctors working with an optometry nurse specialist with an average census of about 40 inpatients and an average outpatient load of 30 patients seen by the nurse consultant per day and up to 20-30 patients seen by those same two doctors.
Oh, and surgeries. Those two docs also do about 30-45 cases per month with the help of a surgical assistant who can do a lot of cases on his own.
But wait there is more. Of the two docs we have one ( The Wegners) who is returning to the States at the end of January and so the will be only ONE (yes, I said one) full time doctor here.
There are some brave souls coming in January to help us out for 6 weeks but we need more. We need short term or long term volunteers throughout 2013 and into 2014 to keep the hospital running.
To sum up......we need help.
We need Doctors of all types but especially surgeons, pediatricians, family practitioners, internists, emergency medicine specialists and obstetrics-gynecologists .
We need other medical staff like physical therapists, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and dentists.
We need more support staff. We need a person to help us with logistics, a mechanic, a carpenter, an account and even a bio med technician
Maybe, we need you. Or maybe you know of someone we can use.
