Oct. 15th the reality of the numerous cases of devastation quickly rose as we settled into areas where help was once absent. After hours at the Clinic in Quebradillas. A wife came in with her husband. His foot was run over. The nurse, Kyle did a quick clean up of the wound, then blood came out of the hole. He was immediately told he needs to go to the emergency room to get it looked at and examined thoroughly because there was no way of telling if something was lodged inside or if it was just a puncture wound.
Immediately after they left a woman came in with her baby passed out. Thankfully the baby woke up crying not knowing where she was her temperature was taken and I kneeled, gently speaking to calm her tears as Dr. Hartridge and Nurse Elizabeth let the family know to keep her hydrated, supplying them with pedialyte and instruction of care. These were two of the cases I witnessed, out of the 200+ people that were served in the clinic at Quebradillas.
