PRC establishes medical tent at Dasma hospital to aid dengue cases

A 60-bed medical tent was recently inaugurated by the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) at the Pagamutang Bayan ng Dasmariñas in Cavite.

Data showed that 3, 277 dengue cases have been reported in Cavite.
On August 6, the Health Department announced a national dengue epidemic in the wake of the 146,062 cases recorded since January to July 20, 2019.

“Tens of thousands of patients continue streaming into overcrowded hospital. All hands are on deck to address this deadly epidemic. We set up medical tents, augment the blood supply in most affected provinces, and put our ambulances on standby,” Richard Gordon, PRC chairman, said.

The humanitarian organization said it provisioned to 1,055 dengue patients through its eight emergency medical tents that help as extension wards and fast lanes in Iloilo, Capiz, and Aklan.

Gordon affirmed the public that PRC remains on full alert to supply the blood needs of dengue patients.

    Madamot mga volunyeers ng Red cross ayaw nila mamigay ng tubig kasi para lang daw sa kanila yun. Kailangan mo pang pumunta ng cantren ng ospital sa 4’th floor at iwan ang pasyente mo.
    Inalis din nila mga outlet para makapag charge man lang ng cp pweo sa kanila meron. Yung ear thwrmometwr maraming nagtataka bakit laging 37.2°C kahit wala nang lagnat ang pasyente kaya nagdala na lang ng ibang digital thwrmometwr ang ilan para mapatunayan na wala ngang lagnat ang pasyente. Kadalasan 36.5°C lang sa kanilang device. Bakit ganoon?
    OK naman servuces ng mga volunteers maliban sa ilang supladang naka uniform ng nurse. May roon ding nasabihan ng dicror na pwese nang umuwi pero cut off na raw kaya kinabukasan na lang kaso di naman nasipot ang doctor kaya inabot na naman ng cut off. Sabi nan ng ilang volunteers wag sila sisihin o tanungin kasi wala silang bayad. Sino ngayon ang dapat lapitan?
    Salamat kung makakarating sa kinauukulan.
