Abstract

Easy, accessible health care is something that everyone in the world wants and needs. However, this is not available for many people in the United States, and this poses a similar situation in other third-world countries. Emergency relief has been provided to fight against the spread of diseases and viruses such as Ebola and Zika, but care for minor injuries is still lacking. In the US alone, over 6.3 million bones are either fractured or broken every year. In rural areas and third world countries, this is a major problem. Far and few emergency medical rooms can cause injuries to become worse due to the inability to receive proper treatment in a timely manner. Hospitalia focuses on spreading knowledge about how to treat minor wounds and care for one’s injuries until they can reach an emergency facility. A key focal point centers on teaching about how to care for animal bites, along with teaching how to create splints to care for injured fingers. Our project also works towards the promotion of more emergency room facilities in rural areas and later in third world countries to prevent the multiple millions of deaths from minor injuries each year. This project promotes more knowledge on how to treat minor injuries while also urging the creation of medical facilities in lighter populated areas in our world especially the encouragement of training nurses with the basic ability to take care of immediate emergency treatment.
