We had an amazing tour of the hospital today in Chitre, Panama. Before the tour began we had an introduction to the hospital with a nurse who was the head of the education department at the hospital. She was very welcoming and informative. She answered so many questions for us about our curiosities in regards to the hospital policies. Personally, the most interesting thing I learned from the nurse today was that a nurse’s shift at the hospital is only 6 hours a day and that shift change happens 4 times a day. I would love to be able to implement a similar work schedule for nurse’s in the United States. The hospital is very large and is also well equipped to handle several patients. I was amazed to see how advanced and modern the hospital is. It was a very educational day and I learned so much.
