Computers down at Vermont's largest hospital

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

A major, systemwide computer problem at Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington Friday.

The hospital says the computer system went down at 9:45 a.m. The glitch means doctors and nurses could not enter patient information into computers.

Hospital spokesperson Mike Noble says information is now being recorded manually. Noble says the staff continues to provide the same care as normal and no surgeries were canceled because of the computer issue.

Noble says the issue appears to be an internal problem and not something from an outside computer provider.

It’s not known when the problem will be corrected.
