6289: Re: 6278: Son very sick in Port-Au-Prince (fwd)

From: Martha O'Brien <mobfa1@scotus.sfcpa.edu>

When I was in Haiti this past summer I contracted typhoid fever 
and was extremely well-cared for by a Haitian physician.  I did not 
have to be hospitalized, so I cannot comment on the state of any 
hospital in Haiti; but I must say that the care I received was first-
rate.  As a matter of fact, I probably received better care from that 
Haitian physician than I would have back here in Pennsylvania--I 
don't think that I would want to trust a case of typhoid fever to 
someone who has probably never treated one!  Additionally, Haitian 
friends of mine have had all sorts of procedures (including surgery) 
successfully performed in Haitian hospitals.  It seems that, as with 
just about everything else, if you have the money you can obtain 
excellent goods and services.
