Moldova Poverty: Surgeons Using Construction Tools... Drills, Pliers, Hammer, Chisels

Sterilized.. I don't see a problem. Overcoming obstacles in spite of their circumstances. Kudos.


The staff at the hospital, located in Moldova's capital Kisjonov, said that the reason the leaked video was because they were dissatisfied with the hospital director had given money to the new equipment.

- We had to drill into the child's shoulder, so that's what we did. This type of tool is just plain inconvenient because they are difficult to sterilize, says Nicolae Curca, one of the surgeons who performed the operation shown in the video, according to AFP.

Curca says that he and his colleagues also have to use regular hammer and chisel blade to break through the bone.
