Hospital Code Yellow Emergency Response

It is vital that medical institutions keep track of their patients and that they act quickly upon discovery that a patient has gone missing. A digital solution with a clear process for managing these scenarios can help streamline the missing patient emergency response.

SimplyCast presents the idea of the code yellow use case, a complete solution that has been designed to create a straightforward process for managing the response to code yellow emergencies.

The solution is intended to be used by administrators of hospitals and other medical institutions that need to have a missing patient response plan. Here is how each type of user would interact with an automated code yellow solution.

The Code Yellow Process

SimplyCast anticipated the need for medical institutions to have a straightforward and quick to launch process for handling missing patient emergencies.

Within this process, administrators have three steps to follow and hospital staff have just one:

Administrators – Step 1

An administrator starts the code yellow process by launching a pre-defined code yellow event and sends out an alert to staff with the details of the code yellow emergency, such as the description of the missing patient.

Hospital Staff – Step 1

Relevant staff receive the code yellow alert and begin to search the required area(s), sending status updates whenever they finish searching their designated areas or if they find the missing patient.

Administrators – Step 2

Administrators are able to monitor the responses and updates provided by the hospital staff as time passes, and can advance the scope of the search as needed as new information comes in.

Administrators – Step 3

When the missing patient is found and it has been verified by the appropriate personnel, hospital administrators are able to send another notification to alert all staff to inform them that the situation has been resolved.
