Knightfall Emergency Care Center

No Caption Provided

Knightfall Emergency Care Center (KECC) is a not-for-profit hospital that is built in Gothic City where the once Black House stood. What once brought fear, death and anxiety is now a symbol of hope, life and peace of mind. Unlike other hospitals, this one specializes solely on emergency care. While an individual may be admitted for further needed care, there are no scheduled appointments here at KECC. This was decided due to the high trauma loads that have been coming through at Gothic General Hospital. Knightfall Emergency Care Center was built to take in the heavy loads of trauma injuries to help give relief to other nearby hospitals that may not be suited for gunshot wounds, crush injuries, burns, displaced open fractures, brain bleeds and more. The hospital is also built to be able take care of myocardial infarction (heart attacks) and cerebral infarctions (strokes).

There are four different levels of the KECC; Emergency Department, Surgical/Trauma Ward, Inpatient and ICU. From minor scrapes and bruises to near death traumatic injuries no job is too great or difficult for Dr. Knightfall and her team in the KECC.

The Emergency Department (ED)

Welcome to the ED
Welcome to the ED

The ED is where patients who have emergent injuries (gunshot wounds, deep tissue lacerations, broken bones, heart attacks, strokes.. etc..) are brought to for more emergent medical attention. The area will seem chaotic with nurses and staff running around and blood will be seen on the floor but that’s just an average day in the ED. While less minor injuries could also be treated here, the primary goal of the ED is to deal with higher acuity symptoms/injuries first. If you come with a cough to the ED, you’re most likely going to be waiting several hours in comparison to a person with multiple stab wounds.

The Surgical/Trauma Ward

No Caption Provided

The Surgical/Trauma Ward is where patients who require emergency surgery done for both traumatic and non-traumatic events. All patient's come from the ED for a level of care they cannot preform. From there patient's are normally found in ICU depending on the severity of the surgery. From shattered bones to ruptured organs, to removal of several bullets to reattach a severed limb, there is no surgery too great for this team.

Inpatient Care

No Caption Provided

Inpatient care means you are admitted to the hospital on a doctor’s order. You are classified as an inpatient as soon as you are formally admitted. For example, if you visit the Emergency Department (ED), you are initially considered an outpatient. However, if your visit results in a doctor’s order to be formally admitted to the hospital, then your status is transitioned to inpatient care. The hospital care that you receive is considered inpatient until the day you’re discharged. Test ranging from x-ray, CT, MRI, blood work and such can be done while you’re in IP (inpatient).

Intensive Care Unit (ICU)

No Caption Provided

The ICU is a special department that provides intensive treatment medicine. ICU cater to patients with severe or life-threatening illnesses and injuries, which require constant care, close supervision form life support equipment and medication in order to ensure normal body functions. They are staffed by highly trained physicians, nurses and respiratory therapists who specializes in caring for critically ill patients. Common conditions that are treated within ICUs include acute respiratory distress syndrome, hypertension, metastases and other life-threatening conditions. Patients are usually admitted to the ICU through the ED but are known to come from different areas of the hospital if they rapidly deteriorate or immediately after surgery if the surgery is very invasive and the patient is at risk of complications.

Security

No Caption Provided

There are security guards located all over the hospitals. Because of Gothic City’s reputation of violence, Ashley took it upon herself to hire either retired vigilantes or retired military personnel to be her guards. They drive around the campus, guard rooftops, and patrol the hallways. There are cameras located all over the hospital inside and out. All visitors must have their picture taken before walking into the hospital and have a visitors badge on at all times. All guests must be escorted by security to their destination. The only way around that is to have them ordered by Ashley herself not to escort them. They are armed with stun batons, pepper spray and knives if necessary. They are equipped with body armor and protective eye gear. There are also security dogs that roam more along the outside perimeters and rooftops but will rush inside if needed.

Staff

Aside from Dr. Ashley Knightfall, there are other doctors on staff who help carry the load when Dr. Knightfall isn't available. These staff members were chosen by Dr. Knightfall herself.

Dr. Amy Hladik

No Caption Provided

Dr. Amy Hladik is head of the ED when Dr. Ashley Knightfall isn’t around. She worked at Parkland Health and Hospital System in Texas which is known to be the second busiest hospital in the USA for the last 15 years. While she has a sense of humor, it can be rather twisted and dark. Dr. Hladik is not afraid to get her hands dirty and is normally the first one out of the ED staff to jump up at a code coming in. She knows how to save a life efficiently and quickly while using half the resources that most other ED doctors do. If you need something done stat, Dr. Amy Hladik is your doctor. Her Emergency Medicine knowledge rivals against Dr. Knightfall and it shows when the two are working together. Dr. Hladik is known to always bring a bag of sour patch kids, a tube of Pringles and three gatorades to every shift.

Dr. Vincent Cooper

No Caption Provided

Dr. Vincent Cooper is the Chief of Surgery and in charge of the Trauma area. Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore Maryland is where Dr. Cooper came from with 10 years of experience. Despite his stern looks and quiet demeanor Dr. Cooper is a rather lighthearted man who enjoys roaming around down in the ED to see if they need any assistance when he’s not busy performing surgery. He enjoys listening to 80’s rap, artists such as Heavy D. & The Boyz, LL Cool J, Marley Marl, Sugar Hill Gang and more… only downside to this is that sometimes Dr. Cooper will try to rap along… which he’s not very good at. It’s not difficult to admit a patient into surgery with Dr. Cooper as he’s always willing to take a patient even when he’s overflowed with work. Dr. Hladik is known to sometimes not call the on call surgeon and call Dr. Cooper directly because she knows he’ll get the job done without any fuss.

Dr. Anar Patel

No Caption Provided

Dr. Anar Patel is the head doctor of Inpatient Care. She is a doctor on staff streight from residency from Stanford University and is already in charge of her own area of the hospital. This is because (even though she is very young) Dr. Knightfall states she is able to fit the role of Inpatient Care Physician better than other doctors she interviewed. Dr. Patel is a headstrong and sometimes stubborn but is always looking out for the patient. She will not give medications to a patient unless she is 100% it’ll help them as she feels adding medications the body doesn’t need will harm them more than help them. Dr Patel is known to be very sympathetic with her patients and kind but is known to be a little more rough (but not rude or mean) with staff. She’s known to always talk with her hands.

Dr. Trevor Dickerson

No Caption Provided

Dr. Trevor Dickerson is in charge of the ICU of the hospital. He’s also a younger doctor but worked at Mount Sinai Hospital, New York for about five years at the ICU there. He is rather loud when he speaks and isn’t aware of the fowl language he uses when around patients and patients’ families until the words have already left his mouth. He is very passionate about his patients and (unlike Dr. Patel) will try whatever possible to get his patient’s better. He tends to talk things out to himself a lot and some nurses will mistake that for him giving orders to them. Dr. Dickerson doesn’t like sitting around and waiting and if his patient’s are doing will, he will go to one of the other levels to see if they need help. Dr. Dickerson always makes time to speak to patient’s families and explain things as simple as he can so they can understand what’s going on with their loved one. While his primary focus is the patient, the patient’s family is right up there for him.

Rules

  • CVnU Rules apply

  • No destruction of any part of the hospital without permission.

  • No hacking into system without permission

  • This is a medical center, so please no combat. If you do engage in combat with another patient or staff member be prepared to also fight off the security (who are trained for combat).

  • All who are injured are welcomed into KECC (doesn't matter if you're blue, grey or red).

  • All doctors and Nursing staff are NPC’s as of now. I’ll be adding more staffing in time but until then, I simply put up the lead doctors for now.

@ashley_knightfall: Convenience, or lack thereof, isn't even a factor for me with this.

But I guess I'll just decide when I get to it. Or flip a coin. Or just use this because it's your own shiny new thread with your name on it.

@feral_nova: @ashley_knightfall: All things considered, I think I adapted well.

In small, shuffling steps Juniper ambled toward the front desk, while around her noted professionals in their respective fields rushed past, assistants responded to urgent calls, and families of prospective patients waited anxiously for direction or updates. Several phones were ringing at once.

As usual her ever-present criminal subconscious made note of the security professionals, cameras, pathways and exit points, and antagonistic-on-principle desire to upset the establishment prodded at the veil in her mind. June marvelled at how similar yet different the KECC was to the Catholicon, while Valentina made note of potential marks—targets for any of the various antisocial plots hidden away in her mind. The Soul Lavaliere growled. This was a place where the delicate balance of life and death was always on edge; a place from which ripe fruit could be plucked, and no suspicion aroused whatsoever.

Before she knew it June was standing at the desk, a kindly brunette looking expectantly up at her with an expression that indicated she must've just asked a question. June cast one more look around the area, shuddering at the memories of her own traumas welling up within her, and leaned over the desk as she spoke lies that came so naturally they registered as physiological truth to her extraordinarily malleable brain. "Yes, hi, it's Junipuh, June here for Dr. Knightfall? I know she's probably busy but she should be expecting me. About the case-study surrounding latent X-genes and their potentially significant manifestations in high-stress situations."

The woman's eyes went wide and with a not-inconsiderable note of panic she fumbled for the phone. June's expression fell as she meekly stepped aside. She hadn't meant to imply a threat, but the attachment to Dr. Knightfall came with the annoyingly (occasionally infuriating), perpetually inconvenient side of her busy schedule and workaholic dedication. In a place like this? She'd have to have an A-tier emergency to be moved to the front of the line.

“Now, I need you to promise me that you’re not going to be jumping off rooftops anymore and into an inflatable pool.” Dr. Knightfall spoke as she examined the cast that she placed on her patient’s leg.

The young teen sat in the wheelchair with crutches laid over his lap. His head sunk in between his shoulders as he nod his head in embarrassment.

“Well it looks like we’re all done here. I’ll put in your discharge paperwork and your nurse will be with you shortly to discharge you, ok?” She gave a small smile before standing up and walking out of the patient’s room. It was in that moment, her phone began buzzing.

“Dr. Knightfall speaking.”

“Doctor Knightfall, I have a June here in the front for you-”

Before the front desk could finish, Ashley interrupted her. “Oh wonderful! Tell her I’ll be right there.” She turned off her phone as she began walking towards the front. “Hey, Hladik, I’ll be back.” Dr. Hladik simply waved her hand to show acknowledgement of the statement as she was speaking into a microphone that was dictating her words for her into a patient’s chart.

It had been… a while, since she saw June. She had to admit, she missed her. While their friendship was not a usual one (or particularly healthy one if you asked anyone else who knew the background of how their friendship began) it was one that Ashley held dearly to her heart. Opening the door that separated the Emergency Department from the lobby The Knightfall Saint’s Cobalt blue eyes scanned the area until. Patient’s and family members of those in the ED sat and stared at the doctor intensely, as if waiting for her to call upon them specifically to take them to the back. Instead, her eyes fell upon the all too family face as she gave a small smile. Walking forward, gently pressing her hand against June’s back. “It’s good to see you June.” Ashley greeted her friend as she looked over to the front desk woman for a moment, thanking her for a brief moment before escorting June to the back with her.

“I’ve been waiting for you to arrive.” She spoke as she reached into one of her many pockets that her white coat held and pulled out a badge, handing it to June. It was labeled as a ‘Student’ badge with very basic information on it. It had the name of the facility, what department (ED), her name (June) with a barcode underneath. “This will give you access to the back without having to go to the front desk every time as well as to my office and to the other floors” As the reached the door to the back Ashley swiped her own badge against the digital lock as it beeped and a tiny light flashed green, showing it was unlocked.

The two began walking towards her office, but going through the ED in order to do so. Many staff members could be seen walking through, most of them in scrubs as Ashley continued to lead the way until they made it to her office. Opening the door for June before walking in herself. Her office (just like all of her others) had the bitter smell of coffee heavily in the room. Ashley walked up to her coffee pot with the black coffee still lingering inside it for the last who knows how many hours. “Would you like some?” She offered June, willing to pour her a cup of she wanted some.

“How have you been?” She finally asked, taking a seat at her desk and motioning for June to take a seat as well. “I haven’t seen you since our meeting in Halo Corp.”

@ashley_knightfall:

Dawdling absently in her phone until then, June's face lit up when she heard the familiar voice break through the rest of what had become pure background noise. Slightly concerned, she scanned Ashley's features for signs of distress. "Waiting for me? Sorry, I didn't know. I meant to come down but it's been busy getting back on my feet after...my accident." She also harbored silent fears by the myriad directions their conversation had taken, and the Lavaliere had suggested taking time away from the doctor to be sure she wouldn't wear out her welcome. The absence would make both hearts fonder, or at least allow her and the doctor to truly ascertain what they both wanted from each other.

"Thank you so much," she said with a bow as she took the badge. Her eyes fairly glinted as though she'd been given the key to unlock a bank vault by the owner of the establishment herself.

"Actually, bean water would be perfect! Thank you." And as Ashley poured, she turned her back and filtered several pills from an unmarked bottle, to be taken in conjunction with the beverage. "I'm...good. I think. Maybe great. Honestly, I've been...well, a little nervous after the last talk we had. But I'll be ready to start working again soonthat is, if my internship carries over from the Catholicon to here. But there's also something else I wanted to see you about as well."

Pouring herself and June a cup of coffee she walked it over to her, careful not to spill it. “Careful, it’s hot.” She warned her before handing it to her. Walking back to her chair, sipping her own coffee as she carefully sat in her seat, not wanting to spill her newest cup of coffee even though there was already a mug of stale coffee sitting on the side of her desk.

She couldn’t help but give a soft approving smile hearing that June was actually doing well. Then the last time they spoke came up. Ashley had actually been going over the last interaction the two had. June was very different now compared to that night. She couldn’t help but know that she was simply playing out her June persona now rather than the very different persona she saw that night… or the night of The Purge. Slowly, little by little, she was piecing together who Juno was. Or so she thought. But it wouldn’t be something she would bring up, at least not today. “That night was…” She cleared her throat, her cobalt eyes shifting away from June, remembering how upset she was that night and how poorly she spoke to June. How she triggered something in June to withdraw herself from her. It wasn't a fond memory. “a complicated night, let’s put that behind us and move forward.”

June then brought up her internship as the good doctor set her cup on her desk, still cradling it with both her hands as her eyes focused back on the young woman. “Of course your internship carries over. Whenever you’re ready just bring your badge and come in. I’ll most likely be here either on the floor or in here doing paperwork.” Then there was the other subject that June wanted to talk to her about. Curiosity was seen her eyes as she slightly tilted her head. “Oh? What is it?”

@ashley_knightfall:

"Oh! Do you...maybe have some ice for it then?" she asked, her visage the very portrait of innocence as she clenched her remaining fingers around the downers for concealment. Doing her best to mask her ambivalence, she offered a weak smile in response to Ashley's suggestion. She wasn't quite ready to just drop the night as though it hadn't happened, but if that was what Dr. Knightfall desired June was willing to oblige, at least for now. But her concern remained for the threat of the being who dwelled in the Black Hallows, the possibility that he might still be coming for one or both of them in time.

"I don'tthink," she mused, "I have ever seen you do anything but work. Are you even really human? Have you ever heard the word fun?" As if to demonstrate, in a showing more typical for her age, Juniper leaned back in her seat and kicked her feet up on the edge of the desk. "And at the risk of being a hypocrite...what I want to see you about is a favor. Well, aside from just seeing you. You see, I'm having a class trip"—it was the second time she'd used that codeword—"to a facility where Elsa Beremud makes her metahuman cure thing. They're allowing us to take home samples, and I thought it'd be really cool if you could analyze my samples to determine how it works...and possibly one more thing after that, which shall remain unsaid until we actually bring it back. Would you do this for me?"
