We all loathe software updates regardless if they are Windows updates, phone updates, etc. They interrupt our train of thought and sometimes they commandeer our devices and restart them on their own. A Norwegian hospital, Ostfold Hospital, experienced the nightmare of a lifetime as a patient who had already been administered anesthesia was unable to be examined because the hospital's PC decided to start a software update. This of course ended the anesthesia treatment and the subsequent examination had to be rescheduled. Luckily the patient was only in for a scheduled exam and the situation was not an emergency. Regardless it was surely a black eye for the hospital rated as one of "Europe's very best in the use of new technology in treatment." The hospital has subsequently modified routines so that such events can not happen again. - The routines have been reviewed and changed, and in principle it should not happen again. This type of PC should no longer be able to go to update without getting started manually, says Vist.
