It was a fun weekend and great to have 6 people travel from Cape Town to do the course.
Every course helps us to learn and expand on the different aspects of the course.
For instance - first aid.
Many doctors, nurses, therapist, healers walk the Camino. They can offer their help to other pilgrims on the Camino if necessary but treating illness and injury are actions the Federation insurer will NOT cover in the albergue policy. Even if you (the hospitalero) is a doctor, nurse, physiotherapist, Reiki master or quantum healer, you are not covered to treat pilgrims in the albergue unless in a case of emergency or dire need.
If a medical emergency arises, do what is done on an airplane or ship: call out to see if there is a medical professional in the house – often there is. If you don’t think you can handle something, don’t start. Medical help for pilgrims is readily available at the Health Centre. Take the pilgrim there or arrange to have someone accompany them for this purpose. EMS help is available by calling 112.
