As the SCCM Team field prepares for the first Dominican FCCS provider and instructor course, developments brought to light the need for intermediate care beds for the seriously ill patients. The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) has given a generous grant to SESPAS (the Dominican Ministry of Health) to set up this unit in town of Jimani in the Dominican Republic on the Haitian border. There are two potential sites that could house this unit. The SCCM field team along with the Dr Alejandro Baez, representative of PAHO, will travel to the sites on Wednesday to determine suitability. This unit will have monitors for six beds, two crash carts and one portable ventilator. The team will also help determine the process of patient selection, stabilization and transportation to and from this site.
