Well, maybe not an oasis exactly but I’m referring to the swimming pool on the campus at the hospital.
An absolute joy to the eye and an even greater joy to plunge into, after a day of stressful or perspiration inducing work at the hospital.
The stationary engineer at the hospital, Jimmie Tinsley, has let it be known that some of the critical
equipment that keeps the pool running and sanitized, has reached the end of its functional life. To
be blunt, it is barely possible to run the machinery. Jimmie reports that replacement parts for the
necessary repairs will cost approximately $1400 USD. His regular maintenance budget is of course to be
applied to fund maintenance related to patient care, not leisure for staff. However, there is no doubt
that the pool represents an invaluable off-duty amenity for staff at HAS.
