Code Brown Emergency Response

It is vital that medical institutions maintain control during hazardous material emergencies, as any contact with the material could prove fatal to staff and patients. A digital solution with a clear process for managing these scenarios can help streamline the hazardous material emergency response.

SimplyCast presents the Code Brown use case, a complete solution that has been designed to create a straightforward process for managing the response to code brown emergencies.

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

The Code Brown Process

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

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

Administrators – Step 1

An administrator begins the code brown process by launching a pre-defined code brown event template and sends out an alert to staff with the details of the code brown emergency, such as the location of the hazardous materials leak or spill.

Hospital Staff – Step 1

Relevant staff receive the code brown alert and take any necessary actions. These actions could include preparing patients for a potential evacuation of the hospital, or providing status updates regarding the code brown situation.

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 emergency response as needed as new information comes in.

Administrators – Step 3

When the hazardous materials leak has been contained 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 code brown situation has been resolved.
