We prepared ourselves without really knowing what to prepare ourselves for.
At home we prepared the windows to protect them from blowing in, and stocked up on food in case we couldn't get out for a few days.
At the hospital we planned options for staff who would not be able to get to or from work, and considered what we would do if the hospital flooded, or the ceiling collapsed.
Fortunately we were in Port-au-Prince, which was not affected as badly as the south-west of the island.
It was mostly very stormy and rainy.

The consequences will be devastating for many years to come
Because of the weather, we saw a huge rise in the number of women at the maternity clinic.
Normally we only accept complex or urgent cases, but these women could not get anywhere else, so we took them in.
Even now, weeks later, the clinic is completely full.

We cannot discharge the patients at the same rate as they come in. But it's obviously a small problem compared to what's going on elsewhere in the country. Large parts of Haiti have been enormously affected by the hurricane and many of the employees at the hospital have family and friends that they are still not able to contact.
Again, the consequences will be devastating for many years to come.
