What emergency preparedness protocols does your ASC have in place?

A.png

Our center updates and trains our staff on several emergency preparedness protocols, including those for medical emergencies, fire, bomb threats, severe weather, active shooter/hostage situations, autoclave failure, electrical failure and medical vacuum failure. Our full emergency operations plan was developed by myself, our nurse manager and members of our nursing staff. We often have live drills to ensure that our staff knows what to do in any of these situations.
