JACHO/HIPPA free Zone
It was so refreshing. I saw over 400 patients and did not have to worry about JACHO or HIPPA. Of course it was on a medical mission trip to Guatemala. We saw and treated patients. We saw vitamin defieciency causing blindness, parasites killing children, simple infections devastating families and treated them all. Some we treated in mud huts, others on the floor of simple churches. The pateints were thankful. I wonder what JACHO would say about the hospital that was made of mud? Would we have to get HIPPA waivers for all those who formed a circle and prayed over our patients? I think JACHO needs to go on mission trips.
