RETURN TO HAITI by Ginger Hart RN, BSN

Arriving home from Haiti each time is hard. The country is filled of amazing people with beautiful spirits.  I spent 10 days working in the only critical care hospital in the entire country. Project Medishare for Haiti is located in the heart of Port-au-Prince. During my time spent at the hospital hundreds upon hundreds of patients were seen each day. There illness ranging from asthma attacks to acute GI bleeds.
There are so many memories I have made. People from all around the world travel to Haiti each week to help at The Bernard Mevs Hospital. This week we had Canadians, Americans, Australians, English plus so many more.  It always amazes me how people of so many different backgrounds can come together  for a greater cause....
