Summary

These are the U.S.S. Valhalla's main medical facilities.

Additional Information

Location: Deck 5 - Saucer Section

Description:   

The Valhalla's Medical suite or sickbay is centrally located on Deck 5. It houses the main sickbay area for the general treatment of the crew, offices for the CMO and Chief Counselor, a small medical lab, and a surgical/recovery area called Med/Surg. In addition to this, there is a small physical therapy area and desk space for nursing and medical staff. 

Main Sickbay

As one enters sickbay through the main entrance, they can check in at the nursing desk immediately to their left. A small partition separates this desk from a second desk area which is reserved for on-duty doctors other than the CMO. This gives them an area to do paperwork as well as hold consultations.

Next to the doctor's space is a small physical therapy area for the treatment of chronic musculoskeletal problems, such as back pain therapy or post-surgery recovery exercises. Through a door in this area, one can access a small therapy pool.

Separated from this general area by a short wall is the biobed main treatment area. It includes seven biobeds for treatments. In extreme situations, these beds can also serve as surgical beds, although this is not ideal.

Lab

Immediately to the right of the entrance is a small lab. Having this lab allows for quick turn around for lab tests, which is critical in emergency situations.

Med/Surg

Med/Surg is a very large space. It has two surgical biobeds for surgical operations. Patients can be brought in from Main Sickbay via a connecting door, this saves time during emergency situations. Six biobeds line one wall for patient recovery. These can be assigned to surgical patients or non-surgical patients who need to be treated overnight. Dividers emerge from the wall at the touch of a button to give these patients privacy.

Sickbay benefits from a fully-qualified Emergency Medical Hologram (EMH), which is capable of moving freely throughout the ship thanks to Mobile Emitter technology.
