Health congratulates itself after fire and power outage

By johnboy - 14 April 2011 5

The folk at ACT Health are letting us know how pleased they are with the response to an electrical fault, fire, and loss of suction last Friday.

“Our dedicated, proactive staff, coupled with ACT Health’s sound business continuity plans ensured there was minimal impact on patients at the hospital,” Dr Brown said.

“Last Friday morning, an electrical fault in one of the main electrical boards of the hospital caused a loss of power in a number of areas as well as smoke which set off alarm systems.”

“This led to a loss of suction throughout the main hospital.”

“Staff at the hospital soon set up a coordination centre to manage contractors, equipment and the flow of supplies from within the ACT and interstate.”

“The centre and specialist electrical crews, together with ACTEWAGL, worked tirelessly on Friday, Saturday and again on Monday evening, to bypass the electrical board, replace, repair and restore systems. All work is now complete with all electrical and mechanical systems tested and are fully operational.

ACT Health, that is. It seems my typing also never stops sucking.

Don’t worry, the typo did not change the truth of the statement.

If it wasn’t sucking, what was it they didn’t stop doing?

Good on them for being ready.

It would be fair to say, though, that the bureaucracy of ACT never stopped sucking.

and so they should…
Hospitals are one of those places where if things go wrong, they have the potential to be absolute disasters (a whole lot of people who are unable to evacuate themselves)…

As for the loss of suction, quite a few of their machines (you know, the things which keeps people alive, and go bing) rely on it to work…
