Hospitals and other medical institutions have a wide array of potential emergencies that they need to be prepared for. Of those emergencies, one of the worst nightmares of healthcare professionals is a code white. Code white emergencies occur when a violent person is in the hospital and can be complicated to manage quickly and safely due to the amount of risk that communication may carry.
A digital code white solution can help by streamlining the launching and managing of such an emergency scenario and giving you access to responses and information from the ground, allowing you to adapt as much as possible to a dangerous, dynamic situation.
SimplyCast presents the idea of the Code White use case, a complete solution for managing violent person emergencies.
Steps to Improve the Code White Response
SimplyCast anticipated the need for medical institutions to create a streamlined code white solution to ensure that violent persons are found and isolated as quickly as possible.
When it comes to the ways a digital solution can help, we identified three key opportunities.
Step 1 – Alerting Staff
When a violent person is identified in a hospital, staff need to be notified as quickly as possible to get out of danger and get vulnerable patients to safety as well. A digital solution can help by allowing for pre-defined plans that can simplify the launching of such alerts to hospital staff.
Step 2 – Search Tracking
When a violent person incident is ongoing, there needs to be an easy way for staff to send updates regarding areas that are or are not safe and whether they have discovered any injured victims. They also need to be able to discreetly report evacuated or locked down areas as appropriate. A system that can handle dynamic responses can allow these status updates to be tracked automatically.
Step 3 – Search Monitoring
A central dashboard that can be customized to fit the needs of any given medical institution ensures all staff responses can be easily assessed, allowing administrators to manage the code white emergency via one centralized common operating picture.
These are the core opportunities we identified where a digital solution can improve the code white response, and where SimplyCast can help.
