Spot the Odd One Out

Standard

Ever wondered what it is like working in a resource-limited setting? Wonder no more:

That is a noticeboard. Attached to the noticeboard (your eyes do not deceive you) is a saline infusion. This is what happens when a patient needs an infusion, but no drip stands or beds are available. You either put the bag on the patient’s lap (which invariably means that the flow will not be steady and the drip often tissues) or you make a plan. Like this.

I should add that this took place in a hospital and not in a little rural clinic.

At least we can’t say that we aren’t learning to be innovative…
