Welcome Back Fundraisers for Student Nurses’ Association (SNA)

To kick off the school year, Student Nurses’ Association (SNA) will be promoting two fundraisers – the Standris equipment sale and the Clinical Scrub Jacket sale. Both fundraisers will last from Tuesday, August 20 to Tuesday, September 3.

In addition to stethoscopes, the Standris sale offers clipboards, blood pressure cuffs, penlights, and more! They offer a variety of clipboards that are foldable and contain vital sign ranges, lab values, and drug calculation info! Below are the Standris equipment forms:

Voicemail System – User Action to be Taken

As you are well aware, we had a crash and recovery of the voicemail system over the past week.  Although most items a have been recovered, some of the programming features on many extensions may have been lost.  There are 2 items that seem to need the most attention:

  1. Unified Messaging (Voicemail to email) accounts have been lost.
    • Please contact telecom@desales.edu with your name, extension and email address.  We will enable this for you.
  1. Message light is on and there are no messages
    • Please contact telecom@deales.edu with your extension and we will reset the indicator light on your phone.

There may also be other small things you notice and we appreciate your help with letting us know about them so we can make note.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions.

Is Your Recycling Contaminated?

When non-recyclable items end up in our recycling, they have the potential to turn the entire load into trash. This is called recycling contamination. Currently, DeSales is experiencing high levels of trash in our recycling, which means we’re sending otherwise recyclable materials to the landfill. It also means we’re spending additional disposal costs.

Remember, recycle all empty bottles, cans, paper, and cardboard. Please take EXTRA care to keep all plastic bags, food, and liquids out of the recycling bins and dumpsters. Thank you for your cooperation!
