OOC: Official Medbay Check In Reporting Post!

Because I work insane hours, sometimes I can't always be around to play Ratchet right when someone gets hurts and either requires medical attention/needs to be checked into the Medbay. Sometimes it's easier for characters to check-in with the help of those living in the Medbay or others who help them get up that way before they drop dead or bleed to death.

When characters check in for treatment, especially if they end up staying over for whatever reason (they might be too fatigued to leave right away, in a coma, etc.), as Ratchet's mun, I need to know this happened. Even if Ratchet himself does not treat the patient, both he and I need to know who's in the building and why. This helps me to keep my medic IC and keeps me up to date with how to handle happenings in and around the building. For instance, if there's a patient checked in who's in a coma, it's not likely Ratchet will leave the Medbay for more than a few hours at a time until that patient is conscious again. He wouldn't be a good doctor if he did otherwise. He would want to stay nearby in case of a condition change, for example.

Likewise, if I'm on hiatus for whatever reason and I've given permission to hand wave doctor visits with Ratchet, I need to know those happened as well. (And if I'm hiatusing, I'll usually name one or two other muns who have godmode rights.) Especially if he's never met your character before. Otherwise it's going to be extremely awkward if we thread at a later date and I'm playing him like...well, he's never met your character before. When he has and I'm just completely unaware of it.

Never assume I've noticed a log/thread with a Medbay check in or doctor visit. If it's not something I'm going to get a notif for under default LJ notif settings, there's a chance I'll miss it. Unfortunately due to time constraints and how active the game has become, I can't always read every thread and log.

So, here's your handy-dandy check in form for comment posting. Don't feel like you need to give me every gory detail of what happened and why. As long as I've got basic information, it's all good.

Copy, paste and fill in da blanks!

OOC: Official Medbay Access Code List

Ratchet runs a tight ship, er, Medbay. Because the building is not only a hospital and repair bay, but a home to himself and a number of other Wakened, it's important that only certain people have access to the building dependent on level of trust. Much like with PHI (that's Protected Health Information to you non-medical field folks), codes and levels are granted on a "need to know access basis." Only what you need to get to, nothing further.

The Medbay is also guarded by a security system that was created and programmed by Ratchet himself, updated with Subaru's help while she was still in Nautilus. The system includes a number of monitoring cameras that record 24/7, located both inside and outside the building. Cameras watch the street before the Medbay, the side alley ways, the back area, roof, main halls, storage areas, main work area, lounge/kitchen, equipped patient rooms and generator room. There are no cameras within private quarters belonging to residents and uninjured guests. The building has a built in "lockdown mode" that can be used to turn the Medbay into a veritable fort if necessary, with shielded windows and reinforced doors. Why, you may ask? Next time you run into Ratchet, ask him about the time shadow creatures nearly broken in during Starscream's reign over Nautilus. Or the Heartless invasion. Or the Lunar Cry monster event.
