Happy mid-day from Sacred Heart! Drs. Kelly and Meier have spent the morning changing dressings and applying skin grafts. Drs. Anand, Eubanks and Crile (Crisler) have been doing triage, and while there, Dr. Eubanks took care of a little boy with a pelvic fracture whose urethra was blocked and couldn't use the bathroom.
Dr. Eubanks inserted a catheter in the boy's bladder to ease his pain. The little one should feel much better. Thanks to a quick call toUrologist Dr. Gerald Jerkins at home at Le Bonheur for advice.
Drs. Saltzman and Meier spent the morning in the ORs assisting in the morning's cases. Gordon (Corder) has spent the morning in the sedation room on the first floor assisting with dressing changes that are usually very painful and need some sort of anesthesia.
