There has been some down time between R5 classes this year. Before this week, the last 2-day class was on March 5th and 6th. Yesterday and today we had a guest from Baylor University Medical Center. Donald Sims worked on ASCOM and a few other nurse call systems. He knows and has worked with some of our LSC staff like Justin Bailey, Pat Harvey, and Mike Traylor.

A couple of weeks ago we had a unique R5 class designed just for Clinical Application Specialists. Our first two attendees were Dr. Donna Montgomery (Chief Informatics Officer) and Sharlisa Raley (CAS). This included a Q&A session with our Responder 5 training system in PITCO. We also looked behind some of the devices just so we could see how they are connected. We finished the day with a "CAS" scope of the Responder 5 Power Point.

Looks like we have ourselves a chili cook off!!! The weather is already cooling down for us too, maybe tonight.

We have 7 signed up in Little Rock, 3 in Springdale and I heard from 3 brave souls in the GP office who will battle it off for the title of “Grand Prairie’s or Little Rock’s or Springdale’s Best Chili of the year."

Oh but wait, did I mention your pot of chili gives you an entry for a chance to win a $25 gift card, bragging rights and a little jingle in your pocket (Hmmm, I should enter?).

All you have to do is serve up the best tasting chili. Bring any fixing you need to ensure your bowl is the TASTIEST.

Your peers will be the judges. May the best pot win.

You want to enter, but not sure yet. Don’t fret! There is no deadline.

If you want to enter the chili cook-off, simply email me here letting me know you want in on the battle. If your going to compete in Little Rock or Springdale, email Melinda Gibbs,

Then come October 30th with a pot of your best chili.

We will make sure you can plug in your slow cooker. You will be in charge of monitoring it.

Lunch is served at 11:30 am.

This event is brought to you by SEC (Special Event Committee) and Lone Star Communications Arkansas LSAR. We are always looking for more ideas.

If you would like to join, please see any of the following members for more details: Kelsey, Anna, Erika, Kara & myself.
