An agent from one of Port Manatee’s shipping companies walked in Thursday morning asking if we could take a seafarer with some chest pains to Urgent Care. I dropped what I was doing and then decided exactly where to take him. He was not horribly uncomfortable, but he knew he was not feeling right. I might note here when English is not your first language paperwork can go very slow; so, at Urgent Care I helped him fill it out and he was seen quite quickly. After examining the seafarer and taking an EKG, the Doctor said he was calling the ambulance to send the seafarer to the hospital ER out of proper caution. I coordinated with the shipping agent letting him know what was going on. Our seafarer was cared for, and, when the man was released from the hospital in the early evening, he was returned to his ship by the agent. Anchor House was there to help when needed.
