Haynes Case Study: Hospital

SUMMARY

Haynes recognizing the sense of urgency at a mission critical healthcare facility during the pandemic.

ISSUE

Haynes received an alert that the level controller on the DA tank failed at a healthcare facility treating Covid-19 patients. This level controller feeds the steam boilers, which provide heating and sterilization for the hospital. If these boilers were to go down, the hospital wouldn’t be able to sterilize critical equipment needed to perform medical operations.

SOLUTIONS

The Haynes Team was deployed at a moment’s notice and identified all the issues and created a three-step solution: an immediate, short-term and long-term.

Immediate Solution: This involved Haynes’ technicians manually controlling the valves and pumps around-the-clock to maintain the proper water level in the DA tank.

Short-term Solution: Haynes procured a replacement level controller at an affiliated healthcare facility. The technicians successfully reprogrammed the existing controller and for safety measures, programmed the replacement controller in the event of failure. The Haynes Team then monitored the DA tank and sterilization process for 24 hours to make sure it was functioning properly.

Long-term Solution: To ensure efficiency and mitigate future biohazards, the Haynes team has since ordered two additional level controllers to make sure all their healthcare facilities have replacement level controllers.

RESULTS

The facility continues to run efficiently and employs many medical heroes who are treating patients with Covid-19. In conclusion, Haynes Executive leadership applauds everyone for their contributions, collabora- tion and their actions truly exemplify the Haynes Vision Statement.

“Our vision captures the essence of who we are. It is the desire to never be satisfied, be infinitely driven, and to seek greater challenges. These core beliefs will inspire our mission of service to unprecedented levels of excellence.”
