About the event

A  Hand surgeon will offer reconstructive surgery to  the hand which would include resetting of finger fractures and hand  fractures. Fused fingers can be repaired.  Chronic infections can be  addressed and tendon contractures can be repaired. Each day the team  will work at the hospital in the operating theater performing surgeries  on pre-screened patients. Five days of surgery and Sundays are at  leisure to explore the island.

The hospital is a fully functioning, electrified (daylight hours  only) 30 bed inpatient hospital with two resident physicians who live on  site.  There are childrens, mens, womens and obstetrics wards on site  with resident nurses. A very nice operating theater is on site together  with a labor and delivery room.    There is also a pharmacist who often  has a full stock of medications.  We maintain our own supply of  medication and surgical supplies on site.

We need:  Scrubs, circulating nurses, pre and post op nurses and  recovery room nurses. Non-medical volunteers would screen patients and  complete intake forms.

Accommodations will be at AROHA RESORT www.arohataveuni.com . Aroha is a small, family-owned venue with a pool, on the water and close to the hospital.

  • round trip economy class air from Los Angeles to Taveuni Island, Fiji, inclusive of all taxes and surcharges
