3 Steps for Hospitals to Improve Utility Loss Response

3 Steps for Hospitals to Improve Utility Loss Response

Hospital Code Grey

When utilities go down hospitals need to act quickly to ensure that staff are made aware and patients are properly taken care of. The ability to mobilize quickly and determine where support is needed quickly can save lives.

A digital solution can help by allowing hospital administrators to prepare utility loss emergency response plans and launch alerts when they occur.

SimplyCast presents the idea of the Code Grey use case, a complete solution for managing the response to a utility going down in a hospital.

The solution makes use of alerts, fast-response live surveying, and powerful reporting to streamline the utility loss response.

The Steps to Create a Digital Code Grey Solution

SimplyCast anticipated the need for medical institutions to leverage a digital solution in order to ensure code grey scenarios are responded to as efficiently as possible.

The response to this challenge comes in three steps:

Step 1 – Alert Staff

The first step is making staff aware that a utility has lost service. Since backup generators and other fallback options can mean that staff aren’t immediately aware of a utility going down, they need to be informed that there is an issue so they can respond accordingly.

Step 2 – Active Monitoring

Hospital administrators can reach out to staff using live surveys which allow staff to respond to questions quickly. They can then review these responses to determine where resources need to be dedicated in order to resolve the situation.

Step 3 – Post-code Reporting

After a code grey event is given the “all clear,” reporting tools which log the time every message is sent and every response is received allow administrators to easily conduct reviews and create incident reports as needed.
