We really haven't had time to do much investigation of doctors and hospitals here in our part of Peru. So far, the few medical problems have been dealt with OK. However, I saw a sign on an adobe wall today that advertised, "Hospital Carrión!" This was not reassuring.
I got looking around, and it was true!
Putting the words "Hospital" and "Carrion" on the same sign did not bring up good mental images.
Doing a little research, however, I learned that Daniel Alcides Carrión was a real person, and in fact is considered the father of modern Peruvian medicine, having done pioneering work in vaccines in the 1800´s.
We hope there are no big, ugly birds waiting around your hospitals either.
