Update on Aug. 22 Departmental Drill Alert

stock-photo-computer-notebook-keyboard-with-update-key-technology-background-644769349.jpgOn Tuesday, Aug. 22, we were conducting a routine departmental drill meant for only our Pharmacy department at Cook Children’s Medical Center – Fort Worth. Unfortunately, the entire organization was sent alerts that this was an actual event.

We apologize for the inconvenience and we want to assure everyone this was only a drill. We also want to stress our appreciation to our PBX team who responded appropriately based on the information this team was given.

While this was a mistake, this is why we conduct drills on a frequent basis throughout the system, so we can improve our processes should an actual emergency occur.

Please know your safety remains our top priority.

Thank you for your understanding.
