A Fall And No Medical Care

A story from Kaitlyn – A Hope Ministries Volunteer

Today was a stressful, but successful day. One of the patients that our hospice team visited was a man who had fallen out of a tree over a year ago. He didn’t receive any medical help after his fall. When our team arrived to his house, we found out that he has been bed ridden since his accident and had 3 large sores on his back. The sores were highly infected and covered in maggots. We were able to properly attend to his needs and provide him with the medical care that he deserves. This hit our team pretty hard. They were able to see, first hand, why turning patients and providing proper care is so important. Our Hope Ministries and hospice team were able to provide the care and education that this patient needed to carry on to live a healthier life.
