Adventist Health Ukiah Valley Medical Center Helps Avert COVID Vaccine Crisis
Quick action by the Care team at Adventist Health Ukiah Valley Medical Center helped avert a COVID vaccine crisis when a freezer failed. At 11:35 on Monday morning, January 4, senior staff at Adventist Health Ukiah Valley Medical Center in Mendocino County were holding their first 2021 executive meeting when the hospital pharmacist interrupted: The compressor on a freezer storing 830 doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine had stopped working hours earlier, and the alarm meant to guard against such failure had failed. The doses were quickly thawing. The story of how the staff worked together to make sure that not one dose was lost is truly amazing! Their hard work was much appreciated by their local community, and the story of their initiative has been told and retold in the public media and in Adventist media as well. We are so grateful for the work and ministry of Adventist Health, and of all the Adventist healthcare professionals who are serving so courageously at during this time. We add our voices of appreciation to those who have recognized and expressed gratitude for the Adventist Health team in Ukiah.
