Cusco, Peru - Dee Fuchs, support staff: Speaking of problem solving, the team performed surgery on a young mother whose propane cooking stove exploded. Both hands needed skins grafts and the doctors then wanted her hands to remain elevated, so slings were a necessity. The hospital provided slings that were cumbersome and not desirable in this situation, so our recovery room nurses went to work preparing a prototype sling, which Gilda then took to the hospital laundry. The laundry was then able to sew several slings using the nurses’ design from a piece of left over fabric. It is our hope that they will continue to use this sling for future needs as well.
