  • Haiti Earthquake Operations 2010

    On January 12, 2010, assigned as Assistant Team Leader of a 40-person International DMAT (Disaster Medical Assistance Team) comprised of several medical providers (MD, RN, EMT-P) coordinated thru the U.S. State Department and USAID (US Agency for International Development) Our DMAT responded to the calls for help after the terrible earthquake that struck Haiti causing over 750,000 casualties in Port-Au-Prince in just 18 seconds. I was assigned as Asst. Team Leader to Medical Mission Group 2 sent to Port-Au-Prince, Haiti just 6 days after the quake. We were stationed at Centre Hospitalier du Sacre-Coeur (CDTI) Hospital, one of only two standing hospitals in the capital and the ONLY operating trauma hospital in the capital. After going to work only an hour after we landed, our team, as well as 20 French Paramedics, Doctors, and Nurses from Paris, treated over 7,000 patients the first 7 days, losing only 4 patients to trauma-related injuries. In addition to patient care, our team was responsible for accountability of all personnel, logistics, planning, and organization of hospital equipment and supplies with very little resources. Our team was deployed for 10-14 days and has returned several times to help with other medical response/recovery missions in the country.
