Clinic report Nov 19th 2011

Doctors: 3 residents, Erica Sanford, Gabe, and Sow
Volunteers: 4 cars’ worth, about 17 volunteers
patients: ~25

• patient history keeping system improvement:
o They will be organized by DOB (MM/DD/YYYY) but we’ll still put their name, as given (first, middle, last last) underneath to check their identity when they come back
o Need to get the gallon hanging files to put the files in
• special cases:
o 1yo baby with down syndrome had a hole in the heart common for kids with down syndrome to have heart problems); will get a special toy for her and told her to see a cardiologist; will need surgery; family did not seem to have a problem with getting the surgery
o sister of that baby had stomach problems, suspect H pylori infection (causes ulcers). Gave her some antacids, and told them to come back next month and we need to buy the drugs needed for H pylori treatment and give to her at the Dec 10th clinic
• Issues/news:
o And it rained during the week; there was a waterfall in the dental room it seems and Maria Elena got shocked pretty bad when she went in. need to fix the roof, then can fix up other areas. Blood pressure cuff was wet and broken, scale was also broken; need new ones
o brought down over $10,000 worth of donated meds, from Kingsway and nice new ear thermometers, and glucose strips from Medwish (plus some intubating stuff, amusingly enough) and many brought in by a member with connections to doctors in OC (were not stopped, ran into no problems with the meds; had a customs letter from DIF for each car just in case but we did not need to use it)
o Progress on roof: Anelah gave Maribel from DIF the rest of the donation, Maribel will contact the contractor on Tuesday, then the actual building should take 10 days; they will put our meds in the pharmacy in boxes marked A-G to protect them from the elements and local hooligans while that room is exposed. Hope that we will have new roof before the end of the year.
