Col. San Juda

At 945pm CDS was dispatched to Colonia San Juda where 26yo Jose Angel Ayala was offered first aid due to a fall that resulted in a laceration on the occipital part of his cranium. He was securely transported to the small surgery clinic at our main base in San Salvador. He was attended to by clinic worker and surgeon Rosa Galvez. Rosa utilized a Blue Monofilament Polypropylene suture with a 2-0 size needle to place 6 stitches. The patient presented ebriated so no Lidocaine was used. Video soon via another entry in the future.
