I was proud that they performed exactly as trained
Today we recognize staff in our Bronson Battle Creek BirthPlace for raising the bar and assuring safe, equitable care for our patients.
A few weeks ago, a surprise Code Pink (child abduction) drill was conducted in our Birthplace. Staff did a terrific job: securing the unit and responding with a structured, disciplined, professional search.
Of special note, I happened to be on the unit that morning visiting a patient. I was asked to participate in the drill, in fact I was carrying the missing baby band. When I attempted to leave the unit during the Code Pink… three staff members stopped me at the door and refused to let me exit. I was most proud that they performed exactly as trained and did not let their guard down – even for the chief operating officer!
Congratulations and thank you to our BirthPlace and many others across this organization who assure safety is a priority at BBC!
