It was hot in the tent, and that was another reason the pharmacy needed to be moved. It is not good to store drugs above room temperature, and it was certainly above room temp! Things were pretty basic. No computer and no real filling system. I didn't even use bottles to dispense the meds. The nurses wanted their meds in little plastic bags because they took up less space. So that's what I used.
It had been about 2 years since I had worked with traditional medication. I had to look several things up, but most of it came right back. One issue I had was with foreign meds and foreign names of medications. The hospital used some medications that aren't used here in the states, and I had to quickly educate myself about them.
This is Lou Lou. He was a Haitian volunteer who helped out in the pharmacy. He spoke a little English, and he tried to teach me some Creole, but it didn't take. He was very helpful on the day we moved the pharmacy.
