Healthcare in Argentina

‘Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.´  The hospitals and clinics I visited in 7 cities were all different, but the story was more or less the same…. there is no money.  I found the hospital staff amiable and competent… always willing to take the time to show me around and explain things.  In the operations I observed, many of the supplies were non-disposable (including cloth drapes and gowns).  Though we have newer technology and supplies in Idaho, I am impressed with the way these hospitals are able to do what is necessary with less.
