Howdy! We’ve made some major changes to the hospital and asylum and wanted to update all of you on what we’ve been doing. This project began by gathering specific feedback from patients as well as former and current hospital staff. Believe it or not, executing this list of changes took three people, plus many helpers, nearly two months to develop, polish, and publish and it still only represents first steps toward making the hospital and asylum the RP destinations they can be.
Thank you to the following people for providing your inputs on how medical RP could be made better: Titi, Ming Yheng, Xelan Yheng, Barley Alsop, Kendall Alsop, Shade Manx, Jack Jameston, Rhyssa Panther, Lyss Ritter, Rhoslyn Ritter, Magnum Vectoscop, Vanora Blackheart, Eve Romana, Sarah Angelo, Alice Lambert, and more who I’ve almost certainly lost track of. Sorry if I missed you on this list!
Special thanks go to Ming Yheng (assisting in proof reading), Lyss Ritter (assisting in proof reading), Shade Manx (revamping Hospital/Asylum/PD work flow), Marty Kells (revamping Hospital/Asylum/PD work flow), Tarra Thornton (revamping Hospital/Asylum/PD work flow), Kendall Alsop (revamping Hospital/FD work flow), Madison Montana (Event DJ), Eve Romana (daily article support), and Braeden Daughtry (customizing our new mesh scrubs).
Our biggest goal is attracting and retaining staff because the lack of staff availability precludes many attempts at generating role play. As such, many of our changes have been internally focused and will be transparent to you. I’ve prioritized the changes to list the ones likely to affect you first.
We do have one thing to ask you, the community, to change. A lot of characters have developed affinities for certain doctors and nurses. While we do blush and appreciate those votes of confidence, role play will be much smoother if we can be more open to working with whoever is online. We’ve beefed up our guidance on what sort of information should be in the charts to make that change in habit easier on all of you. By all means role play with the staff member of your choice, but we ask that you keep in mind how hard it is for a brand new interns to role play when many cases go to the few players who have developed a following.
1. We’re refocusing on follow up care.
2. Contacting hospital staff.
The staff directory can be found by clicking the drop box located in the hospital lobby.
3. Clearly defined PD and FD work flows.
4. We’ve developed new role play!
We are also geared up to launch a storyline with the lawyer groups to encourage bad behavior and (unnecessary treatments, drugging, gropes, rapes, etc.). We also developed the Men’s Rights Movement invitation. When I originally wrote that, it was designed to be focused on hospital players… but then Cara was nice enough to take the DA job and put a female in the lead of every single pseudo-political position in DE. TL;DR: we are striking out on new paths so you can play with us in ways aside from the classic “I have an owie, make me better” role play.
Internal changes you probably won’t see but will benefit from:
With the new materials we have also expanded the guidance on the information to document in patient charts. This will help staff hand patients off between each other and continue the role play with whoever is present.
2. New, expanded, ranking structure.
3. Mesh scrubs!!!!!!
