Hospitals take hostage situations very seriously, and need organized and effective ways of communicating to those who are affected. A two-way communication system is required to reach those who have been taken or are stuck in the area of the incident, as well as receive confirmation of their location and safety. Using automation for these code purple emergencies not only ensures that all staff are alerted of the situation, but also actively tracks the emergency as it progresses and keeps everyone informed of the danger.
This is why SImplyCast introduces the Hospital Code Purple use case, a personalized automated solution that streamlines the communication process between hospital staff members, keeping everyone safe in times of urgency.
There are many benefits to incorporating an automated solution, but we have chosen to share our top 3 in this blog.
SimplyCast developed this solution to keep hospitals free of miscommunications during these serious and high-pressure situations. Making as many people in the area known of the hostage situation as possible, is key to ensuring that nobody else puts themselves in danger. Hospitals are busy environments, and there are many staff members that may enter the area of danger without knowing about the situation. This is why the digital solution makes sure no name is missed when sending out alerts, and keeps everyone informed while the proper authorities arrive.
Easily Send Alerts
During a code purple, or hostage situation, getting notice out of what is happening and what areas to avoid is crucial. Using this system, all the administrator needs to do is press a single button to launch the messages, once the incident has been detected. These alerts will be sent out via several channels, including email, SMS, and phone calls.
As the situation progresses, authorities will want to collect as much information as possible. Using a shortcode, the hospital administrator can send all collected details which will be stored in a central dashboard. The alerts that everyone receives will prompt them to submit any knowledge they have of the situation, which helps gather information from the inside.
The entire code purple situation is bound to be stressful, and issues may arise as it unfolds. Having a way to look back and determine what went right, and wrong, is a valuable tool that automation can provide. Messages can be reviewed and tweaked to improve the process, and ensure emergency responses are as effective as possible.
That’s the summary of what it takes to create a digital solution for a hospital code purple, and it’s only scratching the surface of what is possible when it comes to using automated technology to help during hostage situations.
