Desperately Seeking Medical Professionals in Haiti

The Catastrophe in Port-au-Prince

By Dr. David Edward Marcinko; MBA

[Publisher-in-Chief]

The ME-P is attempting to assist those in need in Haiti. So, if you are a healthcare professional interested in volunteering, please send an email to volunteer@pih.org with information on your credentials, language capabilities (Haitian Creole or French desired), availability and contact information; etc.

Acute Medical Needs

Orthopedic and trauma surgeons and related specialists are especially desired. In particular, ER doctors and nurses – and full surgical teams (including anesthesiologists, scrub and post-op nurses, and nurse anesthetists) – are in short supply.

Chronic Medical Needs

Down line, primary care doctors, infectious disease specialists, nurses, dentists and internists will be needed once the acute situation has been controlled.

Assessment

We at the ME-P would be very grateful if you are able to contact them, or the Red Cross, and provide medical assistance. As patients flood from Port-au-Prince, they are also finding themselves in need of both personnel and medical supplies, as well.

In other words, any help is much appreciated [time, talent and money].

Conclusion

And so, your thoughts and comments on this ME-P are appreciated. If confirmed, we will laud your humanitarian efforts in an upcoming edition of the ME-P.
