From November 19, 2019
In Haiti, there are times, especially at night, when none of our three nurses are on duty at Santa Chiara. Their absence does not prevent minor cuts and scraps as a result of a fall. I escort the child to the clinic or the nearest bathroom to clean the wound, apply some form first aid antiseptic, and cover the wound with a bandage. I’ve done this many times. The injured kids sometimes call me Doctor Dad.
