Abstract:
Abstract presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: On a Tuesday, August 4, 2009, surgical rooms were running as usual when a massive rain storm hit the area, dumping over seven inches of rain in 90 minutes. Our campus quickly gave way to the rising water. All surgeries were halted, and those in process had to be completed. Within an hour, the decision was made to evacuate the entire building. All utilities were beginning to wane, and very quick adjustments had to be made. After the storm, many team members worked countless numbers of hours over the next three months to restore the campus and get the campus ready to reopen, department by department. This was a major crisis and huge learning experience that all can learn from.
