Summary
Ascension Healthcare System is grappling with the aftermath of a substantial cybersecurity breach that has severely disrupted operations at their medical facilities in Indianapolis. The ransomware attack on May 8 has forced staff to revert to manual documentation, causing significant delays and errors in patient care. Travel nurse Justin Neisser, who recently left Ascension St. Vincent due to these challenges, highlights problems such as delayed medical tests, medication errors, and increased workload on understaffed units. Despite official promises of ongoing efforts to restore normal operations, Neisser and others remain concerned about patient safety and the slow pace of recovery, which may take several months. Ascension has expressed gratitude to their clinicians and has emphasized that their facilities continue to provide care during this challenging period.
