Horror Hospital: The Dawood Military Hospital pictures…

An explosive Congressional investigation revealed horrific new details this week about a U.S. funded military hospital in Afghanistan that kept patients in “Auschwitz-like” conditions. (source)

The Dawood Military Hospital

A patient’s untreated wound.

This patient was not treated for three days, given no wound checks, and his dressings were soiled. He was not given any analgesics prior to his surgery, and remained conscious.

Colonel Gerald Nicholas Carozza: “Patients were lying in filth, in some cases starving and with grotesque bed sores. One patient was on the brink of starving to death.”

U.S. military personnel in Afghanistan at the time described his surgery taking place in “semi-sterile conditions”.  He died four days later of sepsis.

 

Maggots began falling out of this patient’s wounds. He died a week later.



Gangrene set in, making this patient a candidate for amputation. The surgeon refused to “address the issue for days,” according to the investigation.
  
Investigators described this as “a sacral decubitus lesion with high grade tunneling.” There were no plans for surgery for this patient.
“Drain insertion through and through sinus track. No pre-procedure pain Rx, non-sterile technique done in ‘wound care room.’”
