Code Black: Bomb Threat Emergency
A guide to using automating in the communication response to bomb threats at hospitals.
Hospitals' code black emergencies require a very quick response and an organized plan for handling the situation. When hospitals receive a bomb threat or a suspicious package is found, the response needs to be handled with extreme care. This type of emergency requires staff to remain calm, and clear communications are critical for helping them do just that.
SimplyDigital Hospital offers the Code Black use case, a solution which ensures all staff are made aware of the situation. It then communicates the instructions and proper steps they need to take for their safety and patient safety.
Using a code black response automation, hospitals can launch alerts to their staff. Doing so ensures that the incident is resolved with minimal panic. Automated alerts and tools can be extremely useful in a situation like a bomb threat. They can help ensure safety, communicate with other facilities in your area, and help hospitals to monitor the situation.
Steps to Success
- Organize all staff contact information in one central location.
- Provide near real-time reports during and after the emergency.
- Ensure all necessary staff are made aware of the code black as soon as possible.
