How Electricians Keep Cancer Treatment Centres Running Optimally

Keeping a hospital or medical facility up and running isn’t easy. Most hospitals have backup generators. What happens when a secondary power supply for a hospital goes down? We faced that exact situation during a power outage, and all of our equipment went offline. A quick call to a few local electricians provided no resolution, as most of them were busy with other jobs. We were looking for an emergency electrical repair company or independent contractor that could come out fast. About a dozen calls later, we finally found a local expert that was able to come out quickly to look at the issue.

We spoke to Matt from Electrician to the Rescue over the phone, “We’ll be able to get out there shortly,” We were of course relieved to hear that he would be able to send someone out, “Could you tell me a little bit more about the issues you’re experiencing?” We gave him as much information as we could over the phone, but he said he would need to come out to get a better idea of what we were dealing with. When you’re working with issues that could be the result of hundreds of different variables, you really need to see it in-person.

“There’s just a problem with the generator itself. Faulty wiring.” Inside of a couple of hours, he was able to determine the cause of the issue and immediately replace the bad part in the generator. Apparently, some bad wires and a busted component were causing the generator to short out and shut off entirely. With how quickly he was able to determine the root cause of the issue, we were able to get the generator back online the same day while the power company worked on the lines a few blocks down.

We manage a small specialized cancer treatment centre in the metropolitan area. It’s crucial that our power is online at all times in order to keep all of our equipment working. Since we’re dealing with many cancer patients—some of whom are elderly and ailing—we need to ensure that we have the best setup possible. Sometimes, when you encounter a problem that is beyond the skill and experience level of your in-house technicians, you need to rely on a contractor to get the problem amended. In this case, we were very pleased with the outcome.

There are many local regulations which require facilities like ours to have an operational standby generator. These types of generators provide backup electrical power to our medical equipment in the case of power loss. With a good choice of professional companies in the area who service these types of generators, we can continue to do important work with great peace of mind.

How a Laptop Repair Company Helped a Cancer Survivor Configure His PC

The effects of chemo therapy can impact your daily life in ways you might have never expected. Something as simple as using a computer can become a real problem for cancer survivors. Even if you were an experienced sysadmin before you had cancer, your treatment and recovery can make it difficult to use a computer. Your entire body could seize up, or you could get nasty aches and pains in your hands that make it hard to use a keyboard. Luckily, there are many programs and configurations that can make it a lot easier for someone suffering during cancer recovery to use a computer, but finding them can be a bit difficult.

When Marcus was experiencing the ups and downs of cancer, he was looking for a way to still get online and manage his clients without having to spend hours at a desk, “It was a real pain to sit in my computer chair for hours on end. Even navigating around my computer was difficult when my arms started hurting.” Marcus and millions of other cancer survivors have to make huge changes with the way that they interact with technology once they’ve gone through the motions of recovering from a serious illness.

Anthony from ADIT Computer Services, a laptop repair company, was able to step in and help Marcus with the perfect configuration, “We set up his computer in a way that made it much easier for him to use it anywhere, even without typing or moving his mouse,” Anthony explained, “I helped him configure the options on the desktop so that the text was larger, and I set him up with a copy of Dragon so that he was able to control his computer using voice commands through a Logitech USB microphone, and he stopped having to suffer while managing his clients. Configuring Dragon Naturallyspeaking to work with all of your programs can take some time, but I’ve helped a lot of businesses and individuals get it working perfectly for their applications.”

It’s important to remember that your configuration should be personalized to exactly what you need to do with your computer, especially when you’re dealing with the symptoms of cancer treatment. A power user understands his machine and configures it in a way that will help him get tasks done as quickly as possible and remain on-target in terms of productivity.

“I was very impressed with how different my experience was, before and after, when using my laptop. Anthony had great suggestions not only for applications but for plugins for my existing programs like Microsoft Word that made it even easier for me to use voice commands.”
