January 24, 2010 - Update from the frontlines in Haiti

Report from Sutter team in Haiti -- From Toni Brayer, M.D., Chief Medical Officer Sutter Health West Bay Region, Leader for Sutter Health's Help for Haiti

Sunday morning, after the intermittent electricity came on, the Sutter Health surgical relief team was hard at work fixing a complex fracture. Now that they have equipment and pins, they can repair serious injuries previously untreated, and save the patient’s limb. Our team reports they are staying in safe housing (see photo) with good security and intermittent electricity. Communication is difficult, but as they get a break, we will hope for more on-the-ground news.
