Sounds much like the Ethiopian hospital I visited, with a cut hand. The "doctor" reached up and took down a piece of cloth, hanging on the wall, and pulled out a (very) large needle to sew me up. I asked if he didnt have something smaller, and cleaner (maybe in alcohol. He went away, reappeared with a kidney shaped pan, and several needles in it (most very large). The liquid didnt smell like disinfectant, so we went away, looking for help elsewhere. Found out later, the doctor was a Vet, but the closest thing they had to someone with medical training. Give thanks and praise for our medical services - most of the world is worse.
