Tru-D Goes to Korea!
Today, we’re featuring a guest blog post from Ed Manley, Government Accounts Representative for Tru-D SmartUVC.
Recently, my wife and I traveled to South Korea to conduct an in-service of Tru-D SmartUVC for staff at the Brian Allgood Army Community Hospital. The hospital also carries the designation of 121st Combat Support Hospital. The hospital is located on Yongsan Garrison, the U.S. Army base in Seoul, S. Korea and is only 40 miles south of the de-militarized zone between North and South Korea.
While there, we had the opportunity to provide operator training for Operating Room personnel representing not only the U.S. Army, but also nurses from the South Korean Army who work side-by-side with our own service personnel assigned to the hospital. It was “all hands on deck” as the in-service was attended by everyone assigned to the O.R., including LTC Dwight R. Berry, the Officer in Charge and officers on his staff.
Medical Maintenance Personnel (the Army’s term for Biomed) were given specialized training on maintenance and repair of the device, considering their distance from Memphis.
The effort involved a lot of planning on the part of home office personnel as well as Ed and Sandy, all of which culminated in a successful deployment of three new Tru-Ds. To read more, click here.
