Overview of the Incident: (General description of the incident, to include as much detail as is deemed necessary)

Cecillia Lambert, an esteemed researcher on this station, contracted plasma into her body system by nature of mistake. She was then taken (teleported, rather, as she was unconscious) medbay to be treated.

She is immediately diagnosed with plasma poisoning and a ruptured lung.

The three medical persons, CMO Powell, Doctor Fisher, and Intern Peterson, all agreed Peridaxon was the answer, and shoved her in cryo. They did not even remove the contaminated clothing.

It becomes evident that the CMO is taking too long to produce the medicine. I openly told the three that she needed immediate surgery to repair the lungs. She was then dunked out of cryo by Fisher and put on a roller to be taken to the operating room. The Director and I stopped him so we could remove her clothes, since he forgot.

Once in, Fisher starts putting on anesthetics. Lambert can no longer breathe at this point, rendering anesthesia pointless. I pointed out that he needed soporific and ran to get medical staff to get him some. After a relatively long time to get a syringe of sleep toxin, Peterson leaves one at the operating room.

The operation begins. Halfway through the operation, he realizes he doesn't have the necessary saw to complete it. I inform him that robotics has one, and that the Director can bring it. However, he tries to open the freezer room in the operating theatre, claiming there was a saw in there. He calls Powell down there, and then suddenly there's all three medical staff inside the operating room. Powell is unable to open the airlock for some reason, then they finally consider my idea.

While the Director is out, Lambert goes into critical condition. Fisher responds by dragging her without a roller, to cryo, oblivious to the fact that she lost a good pint of blood on the trip, and still has an open incision inside the cryo.

The director arrives with the saw. Peterson dunks Lambert out of cryo and helps take her back to the OR, where the operation is completed. Peterson administers a syringe of what she announced was "Inaprovaline". I would note that during this fiasco, the RD found himself inside the OR. He reads off the monitor that Lambert has toxin damage; The cause of this is not clear. Perhaps it was the "inaprovaline" which was actually something else, or that Fisher did not wash his hands (I cannot say that I saw him begin without washing them, but I cannot recall him actually doing it).

Regardless, she is tossed back into cryo. Peterson announces that she is dead.

Now, at this point, I became slightly emotionally compromised.

I informed all three of them their failures as a proper health team had caused a death and that I would report this to an IAA, along with this report to Central. They did not even react, as if they ignored me. Security showed up and stormed medbay. I left when it became a security investigation, to which, I did not find the results of. All I know of from the point where her death was announced, was that Peterson had reported she had only a third of her blood supply in her. A third.


Did you report it to a Head of Staff or IAA? If so, who?: (Name and rank) Terrance Frank, IAA

Additional notes: I would like to see the CMO demoted for a few shifts, since she proved unable to handle a high-stress situation professionally. I heard her mutter about how her shift was dragging her down and how she needed a vacation while a patient was being (mis)treated.
