=/\=Medical Pod Deck A=/\=

Lieutenant Junior Grade Phaedra walked nervously through the surgical bays of the Medical Pod. After the recent departure of the majority of the medical staff, she was essentially flying blind. Nervously, she rubbed her right lobe in frustration, then made a decision. If no one was going to check in on her, she would do it herself. Clearing her throat, she said "Lieutenant Junior Grade Phaedra to Lieutenant Commander Jekkar. Sir, I would like to speak to you regarding medical preparations for the mission. Please join me in Medical Lab one, on Deck A of the Medical Pod."

"I'm on my way Lieutenant." Jekkar said as he got up from his desk. He took the nearest Turbolift and headed to the location. After a few moments walk he arrived at the location. "What can I do for you?" He asked curiously.

Feeling a bit nervous, but standing straight, despite her small stature, she replied "Sir, I understand that when I came aboard at the station that we didn't currently have a Chief Medical Officer, but that we had some staff filling in. I don't see them around however. I know we need to prepare the treatment bays for the aquatic patients, but no one has started doing so." Pausing, she took a breath and added "Permission to speak freely sir?"

"Permission granted." Jekkar said as he folded his arms and waited to hear what the Lieutenant had to say.

Slightly annoyed at the Commander's tone, Phaedra took a moment to calm herself and replied "We need help down here to prepare the bays for the wounded. I myself have never worked on an fully aquatic patient before. I am asking for permission to recruit anyone with a medical background, and also have engineering help modify some EV suits for the staff. I know I'm not the CMO, and don't wan to me right now sir. I just want to do what's best for our patients."

Jekkar nodded. "You took a big risk coming to me in the absence of the Chief Medical Officer, but having said that you were the only one who showed due care to your patients." The Andorian unfolded his arms. "Permission granted."

Smiling slightly, she replied "Thank you sir. I will get to work and keep you up to date." After receiving a nod, she waited for the commander to leave, then tapped her combadge "Phaedra to any available medical staff. Please report to Deck A of the Medical Pod. Phaedra out" As she waited for people to arrive, she began planning the immense amount of work that needed to be done.
