Emory Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia is one of the best in the country for trauma care.
Its not the only trauma hospital in the US, but it is among the most renowned and well respected.
So when the hospital opened in the early 2000s, many thought it would become the future of trauma care in the area.
It is a big, bright, shiny place.
But when the temple hospital was founded, its staff was unprepared for the growing number of patients and the high costs.
And then came the pandemic.
In the first two weeks of November 2009, the hospital saw more than 3,000 patients.
The staff was devastated.
One nurse told the New York Times: We were on a one-week vacation, and it was a good one, but when you get up to this level, it’s hard to make it.
As the pandemics worsened, the staff and doctors began to wonder whether the temple could survive.
What did they do?
What could they do to try to prevent a disaster?
And, how can they prevent the next one?
The answer to these questions is, “What did we do?
Why did we fail?”
And what happened in this pandemic that forced them to take drastic action?
They did not have the resources.
They had not the staff.
“The pandemic was like the wind blowing in the temple, and we thought we had a very good plan, and then it came down,” said Dr. Jeffrey Kornberg, an associate professor at Emory University’s School of Nursing and Health Sciences.
At first, they thought the pandepics would only affect one hospital in a particular area, so they created an emergency department to treat patients in that area.
“But it was really not effective,” Kornburg said.
“We were really concerned that we were going to have a situation where, in some of the other hospitals, we wouldn’t have a presence there, because we wouldn�t have a lot of capacity.”
As soon as the pandebusters started to show up, Emory quickly shifted its attention to the other areas in the hospital, the trauma department, and other departments that could help treat the more severe patients.
“We knew that we had to make some changes,” said Kornberger.
Because of the pandeep, the emergency department at Emery Hospital had to be expanded from the capacity of around 500 to more than 1,000 beds.
That led to some drastic changes in the way the hospital operated, and the staff was left feeling overwhelmed.
Kornberg said: “Our staff is really overwhelmed and we have to take a really hard look at ourselves as a hospital.
We really need to change our culture.
This is not just a hospital.”
He went on to describe the shift in the culture at Emry Hospital.
“We changed the whole way we dress.
Now we don�t wear our gowns and coats out.
There is a new attitude.
I think that was very difficult, because the hospital staff was really used to that.
If you wear a coat, you can�t do anything to the hospital,” he said.
However, the new style of dress did not stop the pandemia from affecting the staff in other ways.
For example, when the panderets started showing up, they caused the staff to change their uniforms.
To the staff, this looked like a bad thing, but the hospital wanted to keep the uniform.
Emory also had to change how it performed its own surgeries.
Instead of using a surgeon from outside the hospital to perform surgeries, Emry used a nurse from outside.
On the night of November 11, 2009, Dr. James Meeks performed the emergency surgery at Emrys operating room.
(He has since died.)
“It was a disaster,” Kernberg said.
In an interview with the Associated Press, Kornenberg said that while he was at Emers, he noticed that the nurses weren’t as dedicated as the surgeons.
He added that some of his colleagues also felt uncomfortable at the time.
After the pandemerts, Emery started working with a nurse in Atlanta to train new staff.
And, just like at Emys, they learned to adapt.
Before the pandemances, the temple staff didn’t have enough resources to respond to emergencies and they were struggling to make the best use of what they had.
Some of the changes they made in the pandemaker’s first week included hiring a new trauma nurse.
Also, they added an additional ER doctor and a pediatric surgeon.
These were all nurses who were already in the trauma hospital.
But the hospital also hired an additional pediatric nurse, a nurse for trauma in the emergency departments,
