Lack of Resources

My 24 hours shift yesterday was rough.  We had a mom who needed a STAT C section, and we don't do them at our hospital.  Then the baby had problems, and I was the most qualified there to help.  We finally rushed the baby to the larger area hospital.  But when the baby got there, they told us they had no ventilators for babies.   I guess some things cannot be done here, and I have to be comfortable living with that.

Afterwords I delivered a healthy active baby.  I hope the rest are just like that.
