Stanford doctors treat Haiti quake victims
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A Stanford University doctor says the collaboration to help the earthquake victims in Haiti has been phenomenal.
Dr. Paul Auerbach is one of nine Stanford physicians and nurses who are part of the International Medical Corps. They have been in Haiti for 10 days, treating patients in Port-au-Prince.
He says supplies are now plentiful and they have power and water, but 600-700 patients remain in their compound, and the long days are beginning to take their toll.
"We're starting to see the first wave of doctors starting to get fatigued; there is some burnout here, so we're working on replacing some of the doctors with new teams of doctors," Auerbach said.
Auerbach says things do go wrong -- Tuesday they lost one of their generators, but he says the camaraderie is incredible and the perseverance and endurance of the people is amazing.
