Its our 7th day live on Epic in our inpatient areas, and at 1522 we lost commercial power. The rumor so far is that PG&E has had a substation go down and power is out for several blocks at least. Our clinical areas are equipped with multiple layers of emergency power and are fine, as is our phone bank for supporting clinicians, but here at the Command Center in UC Hall we’re in the dark for now.
Update – the word on Twitter is that power is out all the way to 19th Avenue (we are at 3rd Avenue) with 11,000 customers blacked out.
Update #2 – San Francisco Chronicle confirming.
Update #3 – power is back on after 55 minutes.
