We have an old phone system. Mitel 3300. It's fine I guess. But there are like 6 web interfaces depending on what you want to do. System admin, voicemail, conferencing, etc

One of these web interfaces doesn't time you out. The other ones all have a timeout setting where you can pick the amount of time that elapses before you're signed out.

Support has already told met here's not a way to change that setting. After informing my manager, I'm supposed to escalate the issue higher until they fix it.

Not pissing me off, but pissing my co-worker off and hilarious to watch:

We have a time clock that's been having issues. The bigger problem is that it's in the part of the hospital that has the most covid and is all tented off and nobody is supposed to be going in/out of.

So, at the beginning of the day our manager told my co-worker, "Work with Bob on getting this time clock working." Co-worker is WFH so I'm the on--site hands or whatever.

IN THE MIDST OF TROUBLESHOOTING with the timeclock vendor on the line, manager starts disabling/enabling PoE on the network port, to reboot the timeclock. Thanks!

Then a half hour later he sends someone to get pull the clock off the wall and bring it down to IT.

quote:

Additionally, please donít have anyone remove the clock just yet. Fuse will be looking at the clock with my request, and may install some firmware patches in an effort to fix. This has resolved the issue a few times in the past.
Too late!

This is being made FAR more complicated than it needs to be, I really wish we had left the unit there for now. In the absolute worst case, we couldíve just removed the fingerprint reader instead of the entire device, but thereís every possibility that they couldíve fixed remotely right now.

If we canít just get it reconnected, there are steps at http://wiki/index.php/Time_Clocks to configure it for a new location. Just keep in mind that weíll have do it again once itís moved back to the floor.

Doing everything is fun, but you do a phone system every ten years, buy all new switches every ten years, update servers every three years if youíre lucky, upgrade exchange every five years...maybe youíll be dragged into a facilities project like alarm systems, security cameras, or door access.

You have to hope for side projects that you can drag out for months. ERP systems, implementing things like HR or CRM software, that kind of poo poo.

But you almost always get stuck in a rut. A lot of companies donít want to move to the cloud. So youíre stuck with on-prem systems. That AS/400 sticks around. Your skills start to deterioate.

klosterdev posted:

Bob (wear your mask) don't you work for a hospital or mental health facility or something? And they're saving its impossible their employees in a Healthcare facility couldn't catch it at work?

Like, it's extremely dumb and will cause outbreaks from people coming to work sick but that's like, especially dumb.

quote:

Will we get the COVID-19 vaccine? If so, will WORKPLACE require staff across the facility to be vaccinated? If weíve already been positively diagnosed with COVID, do we need to be vaccinated? Once vaccinated, do we still need to wear masks?

MDHHS did say we will get the vaccine in phase 1-2 (Dec-Jan likely) and they will not mandate an Emergency use only vaccine. WORKPLACE will follow the federal and state requirements for staff vaccination when vaccine is available. Answers for the questions, if you were positive do you need vaccination and wear a mask will hopefully be answered then but it is anticipated that social distancing and masking will still be required.

Why are we keeping COVID positive patients/residents now when we were not before?

With the increase in the number of COVID positive cases in the community the HUBs for LTC residents are full and not accepting additional residents at this time. The last few COVID positive LTC residents had to go to Detroit area HUBs. The hospitals will not accept asymptomatic COVID positive or mildly symptomatic COVID positive patients.

Why isnít housekeeping cleaning like they were initially?

As with many departments housekeeping has experienced staffing issues throughout the pandemic. We are continuing to work to find ways to provide a safer, cleaner environment including using new technologies such as electrostatic cleaners which can provide much quicker sanitization of an area from a single staff member. We also have worked with housekeeping management to review cleaning guidelines. Overall, weíve also seen excellent ATP scores, an ATP device looks for living organisms on a surface and provides a score based on how well a high-touch surface was cleaned. This can also be credited to unit staff which have been tremendously helpful throughout the pandemic and have stepped up to help keep our patients and residents safe. If you have any housekeeping concerns please bring them to the directory of housekeeping.

Why do some staff who test positive and are asymptomatic get retested and some donít?

When we first started using Honu labs, we received a large number of asymptomatic positive staff and were having them retest to verify their results. WORKPLACE was also working with MDHHS BOL to retest original samples during this time. After changing over to NxGen labs, we found that they had accurate results and stopped the retesting of staff. Now people who are positive should not get retested for three months.

Do I have to use PTO time for my COVID absence days?

If a staff memberís exposure is defined as occurring at WORKPLACE, WORKPLACE will pay normal scheduled hours for the first week and will then make up the difference in the amount received from workers compensation for the quarantine timeframe (typically a total of 14 days). Because WORKPLACE is classified as a low risk facility for employee exposure, it is more likely that an employeeís exposure occurred outside of WORKPLACE. Therefore, staff will be required to use PTO to cover their absence days related to COVID.

Also, re: mandatory PTO becuase of business being down

quote:

When will the mandatory time off end? Are holidays counted as days in this mandatory time?

We are unable to provide a definite time when employees will no longer have to take mandatory time off. This is dependent on if census increases in the future. The mandatory PTO/UTO time is in addition to holidays Ė holidays may not be used as the mandatory time off requirement.

As a manager, if we need people to staff, do we exempt the mandatory time off requirement?

Mandatory time off requirement can be adjusted based on staffing needs, with approval to do so, on a case by case basis.

Can we consider changing the PTO required time off so that if senior people with more PTO want to take extra days, then a Junior personís PTO is not depleted as much?

In this scenario, a department would be responsible for a certain number of PTO hours each month and could take volunteers rather than mandating.
At this time, we will continue to ask all salaried staff and full-time hourly staff not involved in direct patient care to continue the mandatory time off. Beginning with the time period 11/8/2020, employees will only be required to take 8 hours of PTO/UTO every 4 weeks. Mandatory PTO/UTO will be re-evaluated on 1/02/2021.

If I am off work for COVID related reasons, can I use that time off as part of my mandatory PTO/UTO days each month?

Yes.

Earlier this week, our CFO volunteered to have the accounting department take calls for the most COVID-stricken wing of the building. Basically people calling to check in on their elderly family members or whatever.

So this involves taking the front desk in that area, all the outside calls, and forward those to a newly created ring group with a couple people from accounting in it. Internal calls still ring their front desk. Setup ringing limits, destinations for the calls to go to or ring back if nobody picks up. And then put this on a schedule from 8:30-4:30

Kind of a pain in the rear end to do, but not a huge deal, since we aren't in the phone system all that often.

Anyway, I get it all working, and then maybe 1 hour later I get the call. 'Undo it.'

I could have told you by the tone of voice on the accounting peoples voices when I made my test calls, that this wouldn't work.

I don't know how many calls came in but this kept them from being able to get any work done.
