Hospital Hackers and the Unit Secretary

One of the things that I constantly stress is to know how to continue the workflow when the computers go down.

Recently, Universal Health Services was attacked with malware, which affected all of its 250 facilities. 

Employes described a chaotic scene as this attack delayed patient care. Doctors reverted back to handwritten orders. Lab results crept along, and the wait time was long in the Emergency Room. 

You do not want this to be you. It's time to be prepared. 

What Do You Do When The Computers Go Down (Video)

Do you know what to do when the computers go down at the hospital?  Do you know where the downtime lab forms are? How do you order dinner for the patients? Do you have enough face sheets or patient labels?

These are all things that you will need to know.
