Weather proof exterior sealing approvedThe Southern District Health Board has endorsed further deal with the system to weather proof the exteriors of the Dunedin Hospital Clinical Services Block.

Southern DHB Chief Executive Carole Heatly said that they started the work a month ago and now have to proceed to finish the undertaking.

The work, with a 7 story square scaffolding will cost $1.75m and is required to be finished before the year is over. It includes fixing outside cladding, windows and parts of the top, to guarantee the building's outer surface is water tight.

Southern DHB CEO Carole Heatly said that after late issues with spot spills around the building, incorporating in the territory outside out theaters, it is key for our staff and patients that this work be finished.

The work would be subsidized from one year from the budget assigned to the next year and the Board will work through where the stores will be apportioned from.

A report on the breakdown of Southern District Health Board's machine framework says it was brought about by a staff part mis-writing a code. The IT system was shut down for over 34 hours, leaving Dunedin Hospital unable to see any electronic records this February.
