As Public Health Crisis Continues, Bush Fails to Act on Cuban Offer of 1,100 Doctors
by Karen O'Keefe Saturday, Sep. 03, 2005 at 9:47 PM
karenokeefe@justice.com

Hurricane victims from New Orleans desperately need medical attention, and there are not enough doctors available to meet all of their needs. However, the federal government has not yet accepted Cuba’s offer to send 1,100 doctors with more than 20 tons of medicine.


The front page of the Saturday New York Times features a grim photo of elderly patients -- some in critical condition -- lying on conveyer belts and stretchers at the New Orleans airport. There is not a nurse, doctor, or hospital bed in sight. A Times article explains that more than 2,000 patients were evacuated there from hospitals, and many died while awaiting evacuation to another hospital. As a Saturday headline on WLBT-TV, Jackson read:“Many dying at airport for lack of medical care.” As of Friday afternoon, a few hundred patients remained.

Shelters housing evacuees were also unable to fully meet their medical needs. An Associated Press article entitled “Astrodome Triage Center Treating Hundreds” discusses more than 11,000 refugees at the Astrodome with only 50 doctors to attend to their needs. A doctor who ordinarily treats only 30 patients in an eight hour day saw 50 patients in four hours.

The need of those still trapped in New Orleans itself is even more dire, where minor cuts can quickly become dangerous infections due to the toxic waters, and where for five days people have been without adequate food, water, medications, sanitation, and other necessities. By Saturday night, a typical news headline read,“New Orleans Left for the Dead and Dying.”

News accounts continued to point to ever-increasing numbers of residents seeking medical treatment, and the ability of the already overworked healthcare personnel to deal with the flow of patients is at a breaking point. FOX News Medical correspondent Dr. Steven Glorsky, working alongside other medical personnel to treat evacuees in Baton Rouge, said “Many people might think there are enough people here, and there are not. We just need help.” He added,“We have a crisis in there.”

Adding to the problem is decreasing availability of medical supplies in New Orleans. Another problem is that many of the evacuees seeking help simply do not know what medications they are on, but they still need them as soon as possible..

With most of the city covered by standing water filled with sewage, fuels, toxic chemicals, and unknown numbers of corpses, officials and experts warn that residents risk a host of health problems. For example, there is also a concern these conditions create a favorable atmosphere for mosquitoes to multiply and spread West Nile Virus and malaria. Dr. Steven Garner told FOX News, "These are highly contagious diseases, and as people begin to experience the diarrhea and vomiting, it'll spread because we have people in very close quarters now in the Astrodome or wherever they are."

Infectious disease expert Dr. Sanford Kuvin explained to Palm Beach Daily News that the lack of adequate medical care could result in dangerous outbreaks of otherwise preventable and treatable diseases such as cholera and hepatitis.

With patients across New Orleans receiving limited care after enduring days in extreme heat and without adequate water, food, medications, and electricity, President Fidel Castro of Cuba offered on Friday to send an initial 100 doctors to help deal with the medical crisis, and to send 1,000 more doctors by Sunday. But, the U.S. federal government has not accepted the offer, as the death toll continues to mount.

HAVANA — Dr. Luis Sauchay is the kind of hands-on physician you want in an emergency.
Though relatively young at 34, Sauchay has chalked up more than a decade of practicing hardship medicine.
Right out of medical school, he spent two years on the high seas, the only doctor for hundreds of fishermen aboard an industrial vessel.
During two other years, he cared for the sick and forgotten in an understaffed African clinic, treating countless cases of tuberculosis and cholera.
For the last five years, he has been the local family doctor for 200 working-class families in Havana’s Párraga neighborhood.
And after last December’s tsunami, Sauchay joined a Cuban medical brigade to comfort the shell-shocked in Sri Lanka.
So it was no surprise when just a day after Katrina decimated the Gulf Goast that Sauchay volunteered to help victims even though it means leaving his wife alone with their 2-month-old son.
.
“I can do a lot of good there,” he stressed,“because I have years of experience dealing with this type of catastrophe.”
Sauchay, though, may never get the chance to prove his worth. Despite Bush administration assurances that international aid offers will be kept free of politics, Cold War tensions seem to be freezing out help from Cuba.
Thanks, but no thanks
In separate Washington press briefings, both the White House and State Department spokesmen this week downplayed the Cuban government’s offer to send some 1,600 medics, field hospitals and 83 tons of medical supplies to ease the humanitarian disaster.
State Department spokesman Sean McCormack asserted last week that the Cuban medical brigade would probably not be needed since there has been a “robust response from the American medical community.”
Oh c'mon! You know the "No Birth Certificate" station can't be trusted.

Another un-American anti-American anti-America traitor romanced and won over by Pravda, and just because the internet edition is in ENGLISH. Really! Unless you can cite a credible and non-lying source, the Russian aid story is made up. What is not made up, though, as it was reported in most major newspapers, right and left, is that Cuba offered 100 doctors in Katrina relief aid. It was turned down.
Typical Libtardian Logic, If something is not reported by any George Soros approved source, it is un-American anti-American anti-America and the poster is a traitor!!!

Many reasons to turn down the offer. The FACT is - it was made and rejected. You morons have been whining all morning about how you never heard about it so it must not be true. More proof of how far up your ass your head remains

From what Fox News is reporting, I have no problem as lifting the gay ban will leave the issue up the the local chapters.
I was an active boy scout in a troop sponsored by a Methodist church and if they do not want gays in their troop, they should have the right to do so. And if the want gays, they can do that too..
But what I object to in this piece is that the Wash. Post could not resist inserting Obama in to it. What does Obama have to do with the Boy Scouts? But the Wash. Post has to make a positive connection to help give Obama some credit for it.

Boy Scouts may reverse national ban against gays as members, leaders
Posted by Diana Reese on January 29, 2013

History’s being made this month. Last week, President Barack Obama became the first president to use the term “gay” in reference to sexual orientation in an inauguration speech. And on Monday the Boy Scouts of America — which successfully fought against allowing gays into its ranks all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court in 2000 — said it may reverse its policy next week.

It was 1,600 UNLICENCED Doctors, nurses and medical aides. If countries want to refuse our medical professionals access to their countries, it is their decisions. The ONLY reason why you are bringing this up is because bus was the president!!!
