This success story is a bit different. As of April 1, 2011 our local hospital (located across the street from our office home) has a special contract with the Chinese government to assist in the care of the many orphans at the Zhengzhou Orphanage. We had to admit one little boy with heart issues, when he developed pneumonia.
I visited him last night, and to my surprise he was in a ward with about 30 other babies, all from the Zhengzhou Orphanage. All getting the treatment they need, all getting better, and hopefully all on their way to their forever families within the next year.
The staff is provided by the hospital, which is a great plus. The reason we are so thrilled is the difference this makes in our own budget and also our own staffing.
In the past, when we admitted a baby, we had to provide round the clock staffing to care for one child. This is quite expensive, plus puts a strain on our ladies, because everyone must work extra hours.
Maybe other provinces have already had this service in the past, but its new to us and we are encouraged as we see a developing nation, take responsibility. My on site translator was with me and was translating, explaining, encouraging the staff and she was so proud of her "Mother Land" and we are too!!
