Medical Facilities

Medical Bay

One of a few perpetually active locations on-site, the medical bay’s scale and restless nature assures it a top spot when it comes to ‘most active facilities by combined man-hours’. Site-15’s medical bay houses wards not only for critical and non-critical care, but also quarantine cells, and connects to laboratories dedicated to virology, pathology, and much more.

Internal Structure - Summary

The ward’s largest section is divided into two main areas — critical care and non-critical care. Branching off from these two main zones are the laboratory and quarantine sectors, each of which are accessible only through keycard-access airlock doors; assurance of integrity is most vital in regards to these sectors, and any unauthorised personnel found within laboratory ‘yellow’ zones will subsequently be detained.

Sectors

Offices

While not so visibly active in comparison to the medical wards at large, the offices offer the comfort of confidentiality when agents are required to consult with medical staff - be it for long-term treatment of the physical kind, or the psychological kind.

Dispensary

Also known as Non-Critical Care, the Dispensary serves its purpose in providing minor treatments for day-to-day ailments — cuts, bruises and bumps, headaches or all-over aches, the staff have you covered. They even do dental!

Infirmary

Also known as Critical Care, the Infirmary deals with the far more…serious outcomes of day-to-day life with the Foundation. Whether an agent’s been unfortunate as to which end of the gun they were on, or their life has been left hanging in the balance, the staff and their advanced tech are here to save the day.

Advanced Treatments

Tech nicked from the Promethean Industries has seen use in the medical wards in the form of healing pads which, when used on damaged organic matter, accelerate the patient’s healing factor — however these can only be used for a few hours at a time, as an unfortunate side-effect is that this accelerated healing process exhausts patients.
For injuries of a far more life-threatening nature, patients will be submerged in regenerative tanks; based on prototypes initially developed circa. 19██ for the US government, Foundation scientists believe they have created what’s considered ‘the pinnacle of cytological regeneration’. The long-term effectiveness of this is, as of yet, uncertain.

Laboratories/Subsections1

Pathology

Pathology - or more specifically, the Clinical Pathology Laboratory - is dedicated to diagnosing disease through careful analysis of bodily fluid samples collected from anomalies and mundanes alike. While the staff’s work often goes towards checking the general health of Site-15’s occupants, personnel are also well-trained in protocols for ‘anomobiology’; any unknown anomalous biological material is subject to BSL-3-standard protocol, as opposed to the BSL-2 protocols typically observed in the laboratory, in order to mitigate any potential risks - no matter how minor.

Virology

For safety reasons - both relating to the Foundation site and the state of Nevada itself - this laboratory is kept relatively small, is airlock-secured on multiple levels, and observes BSL standards no lower than level three for a minority of cases. With BSL-4 being the more commonplace procedure, it’s safe to say that what this laboratory and its personnel handle is…no laughing matter. Whether it’s an anomalous or mundane pathogen, it’s guaranteed to be one of the deadliest things known to mankind.

Quarantine Cells

In the event that personnel are exposed to highly contagious diseases, they are placed into quarantine — these cells are designed in such a way as to allow doctors to examine and administer treatment to patients without posing a risk to the rest of the site, as a site-wide epidemic has the potential to be disastrous.

Morgue

The Morgue, the Coldroom, or Corpse Freezer - whatever you would like to call it - is more than likely the section of the facility with the most ill repute. Specialising in…well, what’s left behind after personnel and anomaly death, the staff occupying this area carry out the autopsies and appropriate disposal of human and anomaly remains. Basically all the dirty work nobody wants to think about. Ever.

Notable Staff

DIRECTOR OF MEDICAL - Doctor Max “Brain-in-a-jar” Yates

Described as unusually jovial and, strangely enough even cocky despite all things, Dr. Yates is considered one of the site’s best surgeons it has to offer.
Having been maimed during a containment breach in ‘68, Dr. Yates’ body was salvaged in an experimental surgery and now boasts one of the most complex cybernetic systems known to the Foundation. Although his senses have been left quite dulled, along with significant reduction in motor control, his ability to interface with surgical tools and machines alike has ensured his skills are unmatched.

HEAD OF DELTA-4 - Sonya Naumov

One of the friendlier faces (although by no means comforting, much) Sonya heads the Delta-4 taskforce known more informally as ‘Blue Genes’. Having defected from GRU-P - perhaps finding their immorality too undesirable - she brought to the Foundation knowledge of GRU-P’s own experimentation programs, and was hired on the basis of the Foundation requiring more personnel for their own examination and experimentation endeavours.

HEAD OF HUMAN RESOURCES, ON-SITE PSYCHOTHERAPIST- Adileh Khayyam

Initially brought under the Foundation’s wing due to a need for respectable ethics regarding sentient anomalies, Adileh was responsible for the psychological care of anomalous humanoids within the Foundation’s care. After some research - the results of which were quite promising in regards to coghaz-affected personnel - she accepted a position in Site-15 in order to continue aiding staff; and while her stiff demeanour makes her actions seem as if they are by rote, this is usually quite far from the case.
