|Tropic care Kaua'i, the name given to our local MASH like unit...|
MASH actually stands for Mobile Army Surgical Hospital and the military's Average MASH unit will have: Nine doctors, 29 nurses and some 159 other soldiers which in all make up a typical MASH unit. The Unit on Kauai is not actually a MASH unit, but similar in many ways.
I stopped at All Saints church in Kapa'a town and was greeted with Aloha by many in the Mash like unit practicing there. No pre-qualifying for medical care, whether your a millionaire or on welfare, whether you drive a Mercedes or peddle a bicycle, nobody is refused care!
I was impressed with the bed-side etiquette shown, all involved from the helpers, nurses and doctors all seemed to care and answer all questions with smiles and a caring attitude. Healing begins with a positive attitude.
I am thankful for the eyeglasses and eye exam performed by the visiting MASH-like unit called Tropic Care Hawaii... Radar Hawk-eye and Hot-lips may have not been there, however I saw the dedication and team-worked performed by this group and was beyond impressed. No Cash, go see the men and woman who make up "Tropic Care" MASH like unit.
Mahalo Nui Loa Uncle, Sam that is...
