The maternity department post what changes they would like to see: 1. Good conditions for women in labor; 2. Good consultation conditions throughout the pregnancy; 3. Good conditions for delivery 24 hours per day; 4. Good conditions to operate at any time, 24 hours per day when a caesarian section is required. The residents summarize that they will strike until we find satisfaction for pregnant women.
Internal Medicine residents request: 1. Opening another room immediately; 2. ECG and sonogram equipment 24 hours per day; 3. Suction machine; 4. Materials and medications for all emergencies.
The Surgery department residents say they are tired of: 1. Seeing how women and young men are dying in emergency because the operating room is closed during the night; 2. Seeing emergency cases waiting the same as other clinic cases in the mornings; 3. An operating room which always lack materials.
This sign is posted at the front entrance to Hopital La Paix. It reads: a determined strike for the population because of: 1. No laboratory; 2. No emergency; 3. No neonatology; 4. No operating room during the night; 5. Lack of beds; 6. No medications in the pharmacy. The conclusion at the bottom reads "What a shame for a university hospital". Pray that all these conditions can be addressed and improvements made to the operations at the haitian state hospitals. The government has quite the challenge as they lack resources themselves.
