We know from the excitement of the clinical staff that the ability to quickly find a critical device is a major patient safety issue. The risks will identified as critical if the infrastructure has a failure.
We are developing some mitigation processes that I will share in future posts also sample documentation will be available for those who ask.
The failed devices will need to be isolated and reviewed locally as quickly as possible and if possible resolved by the local technical team. A major issue to be addressed is spares – should there be any kept locally or not? Configuration of these devices is complicated.
By the way this hospital in northern Arizona needs 2 PMP poject managers employees not consultant’s.

Most of the time having a 15% allowance is very comfortable – but now the additional factors that are a threat to the schedule is global in nature.
If you have not negotiated an extension you better get your game face on and lay out all of the various factors!
