Doctors Without Borders Work Without Meds, Logistics of Ferrying Supplies into Haiti

From Denny: Here's a summary of video clips of the ongoing medical situation in Haiti as the rush against time heightens trying to reach and treat people medically in time to save their lives before infection or disease takes its toll.

One thing is for sure, CNN reporter, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, deserves a humanitarian award for his work off camera with the Haitian survivors, often outnumbered by thousands to one doctor. He works with no hospital, no supplies to speak of and tries to monitor his patients' in the most primitive conditions. Like he said, "I'm a doctor first, a journalist second. I have to go now, will report later. New patients were just trucked in and I have to see what I can do for them." This man is a class act.

Haiti's few hospitals have all collapsed or been abandoned yet there are thousands of injured who need treatment.
