20170624醫護妙法共拔苦Providing Medical Care with Love to Alleviate Suffering

When I walked here this morning, from the Jing Si Hall next door, I felt the hospital is just like home; it’s a very familiar feeling. The land for the hospital used to belong to an entrepreneur who trusted me with his land. He said, “I have confidence with you having the land.” I am always grateful for this land as it has saved many people’s lives.

When a patient comes to our hospital, we never ask, “Do you have money to pay?” We simply provide treatment to whatever illness they have and do our best in treating him. In illness, all are equal, regardless of poor or rich. This is respecting life with love; this is the founding spirit of Tzu Chi hospitals.

Nowadays, medical technology has made big advancement. Other than doctor’s sincere and loving care, we also see the wonders of the Da Vinci Surgical System and its precision.

It is really amazing! I got off the bed and started walking the next morning. The four surgical incisions don’t hurt and heal fast.

After all the tubes were removed yesterday afternoon, he started wearing an adult diaper. He wetted the diaper only a little; he has been using the restroom on his own. Some say that urinary incontinence can occur, but so fat that hasn’t happened.

Seeing patients recovering so fast from surgery, it shows that this system raised the quality of medical care and the patients’ quality of life. After the surgery, patients recover very quickly due to less blood loss and smaller incisions.

I am truly moved and impressed by modern medical technology. I respect even more of our doctors and nurses because patients still need care from nurses after the surgery. No matter how technology develops, we will always need human touches, for we still need people’s skill and love to help patients.

I also heard the case of a carpenter who fell off from the third floor of a building and suffered from severe facial fractures.

We used 3D computed tomography to construct the image of his fractured facial bones. In order to avoid leaving scars on his face, we went in from his scalp and fixed the fractures on his frontal bone.

It was such a bad fall that his whole face was unrecognizable. Right now, other than a minor scar in this area, I think his face looks normal now.

The doctor is really good. I’m amazed my hair still grows.

This surgery gave the patient a new life especially his family was already in difficulties, as his wife has liver problems. We should continue caring for this couple. The husband’s treatment has been completed. We have now turned our attention to his wife and his family.

We also see pediatricians treating children’s illnesses very mindfully. The teamwork of doctors bring about strength that keeps a child’s rare disease in control so he can be healthy.

The child has musical talent and also draws very well. He us such an adorable child. His family will take good care of him as they have great hopes for him. The child truly showed a lot of resilience.

In today’s report, I am grateful to see young doctors. Our senior doctors are also quite remarkable.

There’s also a case of a woman receiving a stem cell transplant. She and her husband came to Hualien and told me that they can now return to Hawaii with good health. They were full of gratitude. I am grateful that this patient with rare disease received treatment in time after she came here.

Our doctors gave her a proper diagnosis and gave her the right treatment. In Tzu Chi hospital, medical care is not a way to make money; it is to save people’s lives. Moreover, we save lives out of love.

We also see our hospital saved over 1,300 legs from amputation in the last decade.

From July 2005 to last month, we saved around 1,380 legs, 1,053 patients, from amputation. Including this month, we have saved close to 1,400 legs. The longest follow-up of a patient was 11.5 years.

I’d like to report to Master that, even though our team is small, we are really mindful. Every patient has become my friend. Our friendship is very sincere. In these 12 years, each patient’s journey is an epic that I will never forget. Thank you, Master, for giving us a cath lab and peripheral vascular center so we can conduct treatments and do medical research.

We do medical research very mindfully. We hope we can accomplish the last four verse of the adaptation of the Medicine Buddha Sutra that we can truly find good treatment and bring hope to patients so that their life is spring time again.

Dr. Huang has a vow to save his patients’ leg from amputation. More than 1,000 patients have been saved from being handicapped. This is very touching. Every department is very important. In fact, there’s limited time for each sharing.

I also see our team of nurses. After receiving treatment from doctors, patients need care from nurses. Nurses give care that comfort patients physically and mentally. Patients won’t be stressed due to their illnesses and can still keep their dignity while receiving good care.

Patients are grateful. Hospital are no longer places of suffering. Many patients tell me that our hospital are not like hospitals, as when they are here, they feel both their body and mind are being cared for. This is because we share the same goal. In Tzu Chi’s environment, we give out a radiance of love. This power of love comes from people.

And I see our TIMA members supporting our hospitals. In addition, medical personnel of our hospitals go into the communities within their region to provide care. There are so much gratitude to be expressed. All in all, I am very grateful.

I see the reports and the stories shared by doctors and nurses. Time does not allow me to express all my gratitude individually.

Still, I would like to thank our volunteers. In Tzu Chi hospitals, our Tzu Chi moms and dads and our volunteers have always supported our medical teams. Every time I come, I see them lining up, forming long, neat lines. I believe they serve as the best bridge of communication between patients and medical personnel.

They can understand patient’s feelings and let doctors and nurses know patients’ needs. Medical personnel will then quickly tend to patients and provide satisfactory help. I always feel grateful for the dedication and love of all the hospital volunteers.

I see mutual respect among doctors, nurses, and volunteers. Our volunteers support our hospitals with so much love. I am grateful for all of these. I am grateful to you all and I give you my blessings. Stay on this Tzu Chi Path. Blessings to you all. I hope everyone can be a Tzu Chi volunteer. Thank you.
