Yikes. Our remote sensors had apparently been out since we started a remodel so corporate knew nothing until about 9 hours after the power went out.

That's gonna be quite an expensive replacement.

Someone's in trouble. Should have tested the crap out of everything before starting the remodel. Always an increased chance outages from cut wires and the like during building work.

Don't you use Primex sensors? Those should be remotely monitored. If you're just using a regular thermometer then you don't have anything valuable in there anyways

Supposed to be remotely monitored. Something happened that knocked out the communication almost a month ago and apparently corporate would have never noticed if we didn't call about our power being out. So whoever fucked it up originally and whoever monitors this at corporate both screwed up. You'd think no signal would set off a red flag.

We've lost 2 big fridges, a small fridge, and a small freezer.

Insulin, vaccines, a few topicals and random shit. Wasted. It's gotta be expensive lol.

most insurance companies are a scam anyway. they're happy to take other peoples money but when it comes to the bad times they hate to payout.

yeah, they also tend to fight tooth and nail (where does that term come from anyways?) against big claims like this.

It is not a good idea to put heroin and cocaine in a fridge.

We have all the usual stuff like that, but we also have IV bags that stay cold lol.

We do 3500 scripts a day.

Yeah we do like a third of that, but we have a lot of fridge stock. I'm definitely curious as to the total damage. The priciest things are always the most fragile.
