Ingenuity at work...

The privacy and security of our patients is always a concern, but it's a special concern for our smallest patients—the babies and little folks on the OB and Ped's units. An important part of that security is a functioning pediatric abduction system.

In January, when the power supply to our system crashed and was unsalvageable, Mitchell Lawson stayed hours beyond his shift to repair it. And this was no normal repair job—because parts are no longer available for the system, Mitchell had to "pull a MacGyver" and reassemble the system using parts from another computer. He disassembled both computers, reassembled the peds abduction systems, and did not leave until he confirmed that it would continue to operate as required to protect our patients.
