Memorial Roundup: Code Pink to Change to Infant Code Blue; Rubin Honored for Fundraising; Wipe Alert!; Take the Family to CC Hockey Night

Code Pink changes to Code Blue

Beginning Monday, Oct. 5, Memorial Hospital will change how it calls codes for infants at the hospital.

Infant Code Blue will be called instead of Code Pink for infant patients who need immediate resuscitation.

This change is being made to standardize how codes are called in all UCHealth locations.

AFP Honors Rubin for fundraising

Ron Rubin, development director for major gifts at the Memorial Hospital Foundation, has been named the “Outstanding Fundraising Executive’’ by the Association of Fundraising Professionals Southern Colorado Chapter.

The award recognizes “leadership and excellence among individuals dedicated to the sustainability of the nonprofit sector and who have been fundraising for 10 years or more and exemplify the best traits and characteristics of our profession.’’

The award is the highest honor given to a fundraiser in Southern Colorado. Rubin was honored at a luncheon Friday at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs.

Don’t Flush Wipes!

Employees are reminded not to dispose of cleansing wipes by flushing them down the toilet.

Memorial Hospital’s facilities staff checks a 10-inch-main-sewer line three or four times a day to prevent backups.

“There are days when we remove a grocery-sized bag full of the wipes,’’ said Mitch Howell, interim facilities supervisor. “Wipes don’t break down at all. When we use a sewer snake, we have to pry the wipes out with pliers. They get hung up on transitions in the pipe and catch other debris as water is flowing out; they are difficult to remove.’’

Howell said the wipes that contain bodily fluids should be disposed of in the red biohazard containers instead of in the toilet.

“It’s a simple thing we can do to have a better environment for our patients and employees,’’ he said.
