Alexis and Frigga stepped aboard the Ogawa and followed the way to her quarters on deck 3 like she’d been doing it for a year. Alexis had committed the ship’s layout and map to memory. So, only moments later, both her welcome pack and Frigga’s in hand, they stepped through the doors of their quarters. Frigga, knowing instantly that this was home, it had to be because she could smell her toys in the crates in the middle of the room, took off and was bounding around the room from the couch, to chair, to floor, to the bed in the bedroom, and back out again. “Yeah yeah, you’re happy. Me too, girl,” Alexis said absently as Frigga almost knocked her over. She went into the bedroom and returned a few short minutes later, in her new grey and white uniform. “What do you think? I like it.” Frigga, sat regally on the couch, head cocked in doggy contemplation and then barked softly. She shook her head, turning her collar so that her new, and very first, combadge could be seen. “Nice touch isn’t it? Bet we could teach you to activate it and use it too. But for now, it’s time to go check out our new office.” Frigga whined and laid down on the couch. She had a whole new ‘house’ to break in. She was NOT going to work. Alexis laughed, “Okay, stay here, but if anyone brings welcome aboard treats, I’m not sharing.”

Alexis put down water for Frigga and then left for Deck 12. Stepping off the turbolift Alexis made an immediate left and then a right into the secondary sickbay and then to the back starboard side to her office. She set down several PaDDs and keyed in her code to access the computer terminal. “RECOGNIZE LT. BONNER, ALEXIS, ASSITANT CHIEF MEDICAL OFFICER. BIOMETRIC AND COMMAND CODES AUTHORIZED.” Transferring the staff list for secondary sickbay to a PaDD Alexis returned to the main medical bay. Down here she was in charge of not only this area but the Triage Deck on Deck 14 and the Medical Module storage that took up all of deck 15. There was the surgical suites, med labs, ICU and SICU, in addition to the General Care Unit. OH! And the physical therapy suite. There was a lot to be checked and pre-prepped for use down here. She would also need to configure a team that would be able to prep and set up the triage unit on deck 14. She would have to see who would best fit that position. For now, she started at the closest bio bed and started running diagnostics and checking the inventory of that bed, and then moving on to the next one, until the rest of the staff arrived.

A small chime like noise sounded from what appeared to be above. =^=Can I offer any assistance Doctor Bonner?=^= GALEN’s voice asked.


Alexis was digging through the storage of the first biobed and huffed in frustration. No blankets, no gowns, but medicines- in easy reach for a patient. She began pulling all the items out and placing them on top of the biobed. Checking the next bed it was similar....”Quarter masters should just leave crates and not unpack.” She stood up and looked around. “Yes GALEN please describe for me the details of the new equipment that wasn’t on the old Ogawa and the upgrades to existing equipment while I untangle the mess that was left in here.”
Lt Bonner, AMO

The computer seemed to think this over a moment.

=^= The USS Ogawa NCC-64284 and refit NCC-64284- A was a McCoy class medical frigate comprising of 10 decks and a crew complement of 40 with visiting personnel reaching 100 and a Maximum Evacuation Limit of 500 souls.=^= again a slight pause.

=^= Comparatively the USS Ogawa you are currently on, NCC 64284-B is a Nightingale Class medical cruiser, comprising of 15 decks and a Crew of 450, visiting personnel reaching 200 And a Maximum Evacuation Limit of 6000 souls.=^=

=^= The Nightingale class sports two main Medical Suites rather than the standard ship sickbay facilities. We are currently situated within the secondary medical suite. Upgrade and differences from the standard McCoy class to this area is the floor space and colour decore of the walls outside of the Starfleet issue blue and grey combination. This was thought to give the patients a more soothing experience while in the secondary suite. As in all medical class ships, all health-care facilities use independent environmental systems to eliminate the risk of ship-wide contamination. This suite has a total patient capacity of 100 beds. houses the Assistant Medical Officer’s Office and provides a smaller General Care area, additional dedicated emergency surgical suites, an adjacent surgical care ICU, along with a general ICU area. Finally, the Secondary Suite has a physical therapy section complete with gym and therapeutic baths. =^=

=^=The biobed you are currently working on as the others in this area is equipped with biosensor displays, which are mounted at the head of each unit and include an extending arm panel to cover the patient’s midriff and containing high-resolution medical scanners and can provide detailed diagnostic information. Each biobed also reclines for ease of access and comfort for the patient. The biobeds’ built-in sensors feed directly into the main medical computer system, Me, and can be displayed on the above monitoring screens. Your own duty PaDDs also provide a continuous readout of all patients in the suite and give you access to their vitals anywhere within the suite. Our Intensive Care biobeds are rigged for continuous 3-dimensional scanning and monitoring of the patient. It includes a computer link-up to an alarm system programmed to react and respond to the patient’s life-signs with adjustable acceptable parameters. An unstable reading or life sign will result in a “Code Blue” alarm and engage code blue protocols. At this time the computer will auto engage digital resuscitation and life support until a medical officer is present. If one does not respond within an acceptable time frame, normally 2/3 minutes the EMH programme will respond. It also includes one replicator, additional life support hardware for each bed and back-up battery power. Our EMH programme is a short term Mark III (EMH) programmed to serve in the secondary medical suite. It has two serving interfaces, standard and custom, you may select an interface for the programme at your earliest convenience Doctor Bonner.=^= he paused then.

=^= The holo medical crew is programmed with all current medical knowledge and the ability to adapt to situations as required. Additionally, they can take on any medical role as required by the ship/facility. The Medlabs include one replicator, material diagnostics stations, a centrifuge, gene analysis terminal, stasis field drawers for storage of biological samples. The systems and equipment are top of the range and the set tricorders are mark 18 variants programmed for more sophisticated readouts than their previous counterparts. And of course, there is also me, the interface system for the Nightingale is a customised specific AI System, GALEN. I am designed to monitor the status of all medical systems and patients onboard. I can also provide faster branch prediction and analysis for medical and scientific operations and contains vast databases of medical knowledge for hundreds of species. I am a learning AI which means I will adapt to each user to allow for automatic user experience customisation, including automated scheduling updates, workflow design, crew collaboration planning, patient care coordination, specified alert scheduling and automation, and personal environmental setups, including temperature, gravity level, and ambient sound. In addition, all medical and mental health areas have the ability to use patient tracking wristbands. These are located in store 6,8,10 and 15 and are are linked to my interface. This allows medical and mental health staff to locate patients who are not crewmembers (and therefore not necessarily in the ship’s record), as well as their vitals so that a quick response can be ensured in the event of an emergency. Would you like to hear more about the triage deck or the surgical suites?=^=


OOC: I don’t know why but I’m now assuming GALEN sounds like Baymax, thoughts?
