HAYS, North Carolina, September 29, 2021 / PRNewswire / – What Happens When Medical Equipment Operates Erratically or, Worse, Breaks Down? Jay barlow, a biomedical electronics technician (BMET) at Kirkwood Medical Center, discovers firsthand that a defibrillator he’s testing almost kills him. He is puzzled when he learns that there is nothing wrong with the defibrillator, but suddenly reports come in his department of other failing equipment. He begins to realize that something is seriously wrong.
Jay enlists a small group of hospital workers to help him solve the mystery of the faulty equipment. It quickly becomes apparent that someone is deliberately sabotaging medical devices throughout the hospital. The team must now rush to find the saboteur before anyone dies.
Kirkwood is not just a mysterious murder; it also illustrates how a large hospital works and how the many staff and departments coordinate to treat patients and save lives. The story is based on John Alvah Barnes, Jr. real experiences as a BMET in a large hospital.
“The premise of Kirkwood is about an idea I had years ago and always felt compelled to write down, ”says Barnes. “Working as a BMET in a large medical center gave me the opportunity to bring this premise to life. Most of the story is based on real events, and many of the characters in the story are based on real people. “
“After our success with Road works, I was asked to help write Kirkwood bringing a woman’s perspective to complete the story, ”Ms. Barnes said. ” I found Kirkwood fun to write, and I think readers will find it entertaining. “
Kirkwood is the first novel in a triology by John Alvah Barnes, Jr. Mr. Barnes has spent over 15 years in the healthcare industry, first as a BMET and then as a First Responder (EMT). The following novels in the trilogy are Esbenshade, which will be released soon, and To roll, which is currently available. To roll is based on his experience as a guide at the National Air and Space Museum following his disability.
Kirkwood is Naomi Lynn Barnes’ second collaboration with M. Barnes. Ms. Barnes has been an educator for over 50 years. She began her career teaching English in high school and gradually moved into the field of medical education where she headed education departments in medical societies, including the American College of Physicians, and medical communication agencies, including the clinical affairs division of Cardinal Health.
