Hospitals need to handle hazardous materials carefully, and have a concrete plan established in the event of a spillage. They need to ensure that everyone in the hospital is notified of the exposure they are facing, while also trying to contain the materials. This is why manually spreading the information isn’t the ideal situation. In certain cases, an evacuation may be necessary which requires a lot of coordination between staff members and patients. So how can these hospitals mitigate the challenges that come along with a chemical spill, without creating additional chaos?
SimplyCast presents the Hospital Code Brown use case, a personalized solution for handling hazardous material exposures in medical facilities. These emergencies can bring on a lot of stress and challenges for everyone involved, including finding all of the staff members' information quickly, and ensuring that everyone is kept safe and is evacuated if necessary. Automation can take control of these aspects and confirm that the right people are being contacted, using methods that will reach them effectively.
We have gathered a list of our top 3 benefits of the digital Hospital Code Brown solution, and are going to give you a brief rundown of each.
The Benefits of the Digital Solution
SimplyCast anticipated the need for an improved Code Brown protocol in hospitals, that keeps everyone on the same page without creating additional manual work. In times like this, it is important to get things done quickly and in an organized fashion that does not provoke panic. Communicating the details to coworkers and any other required professionals is made much simpler using a pre-established automated system. Through 4 easy steps, hospitals can ensure that they have a plan in place for handling hazardous materials that have been exposed, and can rest assured that the system will contact the right people.
Alert message templates are created ahead of time, to ensure all of the right information is sent to or requested of staff during the code brown. Alerts can include anything relevant to the situation, such as whether an evacuation is necessary, gathering locations, and locations of the spill.
Central Staff Registry
A centralized database can be built, containing names and details of those you want to receive notifications when a code brown occurs. This data can be easily collected via an online form, or integrated from a previous list. This registry helps keep all important information in one place, and readily available for use when an incident occurs.
Time is valuable during any hospital emergency, so this automated launch allows for quick and convenient communication. All it takes is the press of a button to send out word to other staff members, informing them of the code brown situation.
That’s the summary of what it takes to create a digital solution for a hospital code brown, and it’s only scratching the surface of what is possible when it comes to using automated technology to handle a hazardous spill.
