Un dia en el hospital!

Hola! Bienvenidos desde chitre, Panama. Today is Thursday June 24th 2016. The Usf staff and students from the college of nursing had the privilege of going to the collado Rios hospital where we spoke to the charge nurse along with other personel about the differences between nursing practice in the United States and Panama. Along with having them answer a plethora of questions we presented with, the students of Usf took a personal tour of the hospital going through many different units such as the Emergency department, orthopedic floor, intensive care unit and briefly got to see the Operation room. It was an amazing experience to see the practice of nursing how it evolves here in Panama from keeping paper charts to medicine-on-wheels, it was truly an amazing experience, the staff welcomed us with open arms and were more than happy to provide us with an amazing day. As the day went on we spent the afternoon partaking in the festivities surrounding the San Juan Bautista Festival, we are so grateful that the wonderful people of Chitre have continuously welcomed us with open arms making our global Heath experience one we will remember.


Muchos saludos,

Jayde y Andrea
