On Demand
Leadership and Management


Presentation Description: In 2019 our 530 bed hospital suffered a fire in the Emergency department that ultimately resulted in approximately half of the department suffering damage. This presentation is a review of the events including the immediate response of the staff, activation of incident command, continuing care of the patients who were in the department, cooperation from our hospital administration of that day, and the recovery process. We will also cover the things that are required for documentation of such a disaster. we will cover the core capabilities of preparedness, prevention, mitigation, response and recovery, and discuss lessons learned, and how to train your staff to be ready.
