Kentucky Guard shares medical expertise with Djibouti:Members of the Kentucky National Guard Medical Detachment traveled to Djibouti last month as part of Kentucky’s State Partnership Program with the African nation.

The Guard members met Feb. 15-23 with Djiboutian medical personnel to share best practices for delivering and managing medical care to military members, their families and the community.

“I do believe our medical visits have had an impact on the delivery of healthcare with our Djibouti partners,” said Maj. Stephanie Fields.”During previous medical visits Kentucky offered recommendations that the hospital had adopted as standard procedures. I do believe that the medical professionals will have a positive, lasting impression as they progress in their careers, impacting care delivery for future patients.”

Providers and nurses from Kentucky and Texas National Guard and the Djiboutian military compared and discussed effective process/protocols for diagnosis and treatment for providing patient care, nursing and general medical practices to include clinic administration.

This was the first visit following the hospital gaining an ISO 9001, Tier III rating, a world-wide credentialing of quality management of care and service. Kentucky supported Djibouti’s efforts to gain this rating with a site assistance visit in March 2017.
