The mattresses helped to stock the surgery department, the medicinal area, the emergency room, the intensive care department, the pediatric department, and the main hospital area.

Buen Samaritano Hospital suffered significant physical damage during the hurricane, forcing it to dispose of much of its equipment and supplies. Following the hurricane, they lacked the means to help patients in their area. The donated mattresses and operating tables restored the acting capacity of several departments.
