Rain, Rain Go Away!

October 29, 2012  | A Day in the Life of a Dialysis Healthcare Administrator
Our region is preparing for Hurricane Sandy!

Preparation started Friday evening and we have adjusted our operations in order to care for our patients and our teams during this storm.
We started out by ensuring that each patient had an emergency packet with their information and diet guidelines in an emergency.

My two centers were fully operational on Sunday to care for our patients who usually treat on Mondays-Wednesdays-Fridays and today, Monday, we opened to treat our Tuesday – Thursday- Saturday Patients. I have chosen to close our centers tomorrow due to the storm course.

My main priority is to ensure the safety and care of my patients and teammates.

I’m so proud of how my team all pitched in to pull this off – our collaboration and dedication allowed us to provide services and dialysis to all of our patients before the brunt of this storm hits us. This morning I brought in breakfast for my team, just a little way to show my appreciation to them.  I will safely have everyone home before it gets terrible out there. A lot went into this planning, we needed to inform our Medical Director to get approval and then contacted all the doctors and patients to arrange schedules. In the end, we managed to work it out!

Now, it’s time for me to go home too…. Just as soon as I clear the center!

Hope that everyone stays safe out there!
