Remote Monitoring for hospitals

In recent news, a hospital in Lancaster, Pennsylvania was forced to delay surgical procedures and send emergency situations to another local hospital due to a malfunction with the HVAC unit, according to a Lancaster Online report.

The air conditioning failure had caused the hospital to shut down for more than three hours. This mishap may have cost the hospital the upper part of a million dollars in damages to supplies, according to a local staff member. Other officials said, “The place immediately turned into a sauna.” The temperature and humidity conditions made the operating rooms and hallways foggy. “There was water running down the windows and pooling on the floor,” reported one person.
