Day 2 at Yas Island: SETTING UP THE UNITS

07 November 2010 – I woke up quite early to prepare for my first shift at the field hospital. After I showered, I wore my scrubs and headed for breakfast at Asymetri.

Before the arrival of the service bus that would take us to the field hospital, we were informed that we could get our new uniforms from the lobby and that we need to wear them today. So we took our uniforms and went back to our rooms to change our scrubs. The pair that I got was quite too small for me so I had to go back to my room twice to change scrubs.

As soon as we arrived at the field hospital, we started doing the beds of the hospital. Each of the 180 beds were arranged with linens, pillows and blankets. Later, the nurses were assigned to each of the units. I was assigned to Area #3, which is a back up to the Green Zone. The green zone is where ambulatory patients with less serious health problems would come.

With another nurse, we set up our unit by stocking the area with supplies. Unfortunately, there was not enough supplies around, so we still had to wait until the new orders come.

There were not much patients during the day, in fact our unit got zero patients🙂 Nice, huh. Let’s wait till the race and concert dates get nearer.

We got back to the hotel before 8pm. Buffet dinner as usual. Ah, this is life!

    That’s one cool tent you got there, you even got beds for green patients. I was used to the scenario that only red patients get beds, and the yellow and green ones get a chair or none at all.
