But on the worst-hit islands in the Bahamas, medical providers are continuing to provide care, in tremendously difficult circumstances, according to an article on the DirectRelief website.
Direct Relief is working with the Bahamas’ Ministry of Health, hospitals, and medical groups to deliver $470,000 in medicines and supplies to communities affected by Hurricane Dorian.
By the time the storm passed, Rand Memorial Hospital on Grand Bahama Island was significantly affected. It was estimated that 90 percent of equipment and supplies – and all the hospital beds – were damaged.
Two field hospitals have sprung up on the island to handle some surgeries and inpatient care. Doctors also set up a pop-up clinic on Green Turtle Cay.See the latest posts on our homepage
