“Working in PACU (Post Anesthesia Care Unit) just gives me a great sense of responsibility for the patient. It’s not something to play about with; the child’s hands are under your hands. Every minute, every second you have to watch over the baby, and the good thing at CURE we have the Spacelabs (monitors) which help us monitor our babies. With the help of the alarms you are able to tell there is a change in condition. To be honest, when I was still on orientation I would fear working in PACU. What if the baby doesn’t keep well? It was hard, but with help and experience, I think it’s an honor.”
Janet, PACU nurse
About the photographer
Christopher Mullen Aloha, I’m Christopher, the CURE Storyteller at CURE Uganda. My favorite thing in the world to do is make photographs, and I get to do that in a wonderful environment. On a normal day, I get to document surgeons, doctors, and nurses saving lives and families being prayed for and comforted by every department in the hospital. Prior to working for CURE, I spent the last two years working as a freelance photojournalist in Glenwood Springs, Colorado.
