The efforts of many volunteers were realized Wednesday when a specially equipped medical van made two stops to treat homeless veterans and others.  Doctor Randy Jacobs treated several patients at the Shepherd's House and a Bend area homeless camp. “What we are trying to do is triage in the field. Address typical outpatient things that we can treat out in the field, wound care, frostbite, respiratory infections, skin problems.   Get people into Deschutes County Mental Health who need a mental health evaluation.” Jacobs says the care is not limited to veterans. He says many of the people he treated yesterday simply would not seek out medical care because of the cost.  Jacobs says Wednesday’s outreach was successful and the plan is also to take the van to Drake Park to help treat homeless teenagers who also need medical care.
