Hospitals Collaborate to Save Mother, Baby

Just before Mother’s Day, the teams from Jewish Hospital, University of Louisville Hospital, Flaget Memorial Hospital and Kosair Children’s Hospital worked together to save the lives of a mother and her baby. Patricia Despain (left) had chest pains and was experiencing an aortic dissection, a condition when the layers of the aortic valve separate and blood seeps between them. This condition can lead to serious consequences and needed to be repaired immediately. 

Together, the three medical teams arranged to care for Despain by performing a c-section to deliver baby Rachel, followed by lifesaving surgery on the mother. Now, mom and baby are doing great, and made it home just in time to celebrate Mother’s Day together, along with grandma.

Don’t Get Scammed by ‘Skimmers’

A few employees at Saint Joseph London have been victims of a relatively new type of identity theft: credit or debit card “skimming.” Credit card thieves get your card details using a device called a credit card skimmer, a portable device that is attached in front of or on top of a legitimate card scanner. The skimmer records the card data as you insert your credit card into the real scanner.

Credit card thieves will often temporarily affix the card skimmer device to gas pumps, ATMs or other convenient self-service point-of-sale terminals. Thieves like gas pumps because they are easy to retrieve their skimmers from, and they generally receive a lot of traffic. Learn what you can do to prevent this from happening to you.

CHI News Update

KentuckyOne This Week will include the Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI) publication e in each issue. CHI is a sponsor of KentuckyOne and will be sharing news of interest to all employees.

May 16, 2013

Please note that some employees who are not yet connected to the CHI Connect program may not be able to access all of the links in this issue. This problem will diminish as more employees are connected to Inside CHI. We apologize for any inconvenience.

One-Time Extension for Corporate Responsibility
Education due to Technical Issues
Action: Complete training by June 15
Due to technical difficulties that some employees are experiencing in viewing videos in the CHI Information Privacy and Security Awareness course that is part of the FY 2013 Annual CRP Education, CHI is granting a one-time, 30-day extension to complete the assignment. Course completions must be registered in LEARN by 11:59 p.m. ET on June 15.

Completions of either required course registered after May 15 will be recorded as “completed late” on employee transcripts and completion reports generated by LEARN. Any employee who does not complete the education by the deadline will be subject to possible corrective action per the Mandatory Education section of the CHI Requirements for Employment policy (the policy is available in the My Handbook section of HR/Payroll Connection).

Some employees have encountered technical issues when trying to play videos in the Privacy and Security Awareness course. In some cases, clicking the “previous screen arrow” (in the bottom right corner of the screen) and returning to the video screen will result in the video loading and playing properly.  

For more information about required CRP Annual Education, contact Dan Morrissey. Any technical issues with the training should be reported to the LEARN team.

Lofton on "Most Influential" Ballot
Action: Vote for most influential people in health care
Kevin Lofton, CHI’s president and CEO, is again on the final ballot for Modern Healthcare magazine’s annual list of the “100 Most Influential People in Healthcare.” Lofton, number 48 last year, has been in the exclusive ranking for eight straight years.

Important Information for iPhone 5 Users 
Action: Keep devices up to date; upgrade to Apple iOS 6.1.4 
Apple recently released iOS 6.1.4 for iPhone 5. This update changes the speakerphone audio profile. CHI Information Technology Services (ITS) recommends that users upgrade to this version.

ITS has determined that some Outlook email outages and access problems are caused by iPhones and iPads that are operating on iOS 6.1.1. A bug in iOS 6.1.1 causes the server to overload and makes it unavailable. Devices currently operating on iOS 6.1.1 should be immediately upgraded to 6.1.4.

ITS recommends that users back up their devices by syncing them with iTunes before performing the update. After syncing the device with iTunes, users can update it there or wirelessly. To update wirelessly, select the “Settings” application and the “General” settings category, then “Software Update.” The device will check that the update is available and, if so, will prompt the user to download and install the update. Users should also encrypt their iOS backups to prevent unauthorized access to information stored on their devices.

Update Shares Degree Advancement Program News
