What a Weekend at WMHS (Saturday)

On Saturday beginning at 6 AM, the process started to switch out our electrical breakers in five phases.  Much planning went into this time-consuming process that took over 10 hours to complete.  Electrical power is critical and essential to all that we do in treating and caring for our patients.  Because it was so well planned, the entire process came off without a hitch.  We had to work around an OR case and some emergency Interventional Radiology procedures, but at no time was any patient or staff member in jeopardy.  We even located the source of our original problem which required us to replace our breakers after an unplanned outage a few weeks ago.  Great job on the part of Jo Wilson, VP Support Ops, the facility staff and so many other individuals who put our patients before anyone and everything this past Saturday.  Another job so very well done at WMHS.  I will blog about Sunday's event tomorrow.
