How To Go “Cold Turkey” When Nursing A Toddler

060603-N-3714J-020 Jolo, Philippines (June 3, 2006) - Project Hope nurse, Diane Speranza listens to a childÕs heartbeat while taking her vital signs aboard the U.S. Military Sealift Command (MSC) Hospital ship USNS Mercy (T-AH 19). Mercy is on a five-month deployment to South Asia, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific Islands. The medical crew aboard Mercy will provide general and ophthalmology surgery, basic medical evaluation and treatment, preventive medicine treatment, dental screenings and treatment, optometry screenings, eyewear distribution, public health training and veterinary services as requested by the host nations. Like all U.S. Naval forces, Mercy is able to rapidly respond to a range of situations on short notice. Mercy is uniquely capable of supporting medical and humanitarian assistance needs and is configured with special medical equipment and a robust multi-specialized medical team who can provide a range of services ashore as well as aboard the ship. The medical staff is augmented with an assistance crew, many of whom are part of nongovernmental organizations that have significant medical capabilities.
