Pressure mounts on hospital disaster response officials during every major hurricane.
These names may not mean much to you now, but chances are, seven of them will become house-hold hurricane names this season, with at least three of them reaching major hurricane strength: Alberto, Beryl, Chris, Debby, Ernesto, Florence, Gordon, Helene, Isaac, Joyce, Kirk, Leslie, Michael, Nadine, Oscar, Patty, Rafael, Sara, Tony, Valerie, William.
Mass casualty events are, unfortunately, something that every healthcare facility must now train and prepare for. No matter the size of your organization, steps can be taken to put yourself in a better position to react and respond to a major occurrence. The range and severity of threats vary by location and many outside factors, but what is consistent is the need for organizational communication and proper communication and preparedness.
Situational awareness is described in the United States Coast Guard training manual as: "the ability to identify, process, and comprehend the critical elements of information about what is happening to the team with regards to the mission. More simply, it's knowing what is going on around you." In the context of safety and security solutions on land and in the halls and rooms of your healthcare facility, applying this definition of situational awareness to your work is essential to the safety of patients.
