Track 4: Enhancing Public Health, Healthcare, and Emergency Management Systems
Part A: It's Three, Three, Three Exercises in One
The thought of a hospital evacuation may make you anxious, but what about a Level 1 trauma center, mental health hospital, and 20 hospital surge events simultaneously? Does this sound impossible? It's not! Session presenters will show you how to conduct three exercises in one, evaluate multi-event coordination, and gather invaluable data.
Part B: Run or Protect?: Code Silver Activation Planning for Hospital Shooting Events
Hospital-based shootings are sudden, unpredictable, and require immediate action before help arrives. The presence of vulnerable patients elevates the seriousness of this challenge. This session will feature real-life experiences of hospital-based nurse executives who observed how nursing staff acted during an actual onsite active shooter event.
