Hospital: Code Amber

Hospital: Code Amber

Challenge

  • Hospitals have a variety of patients, many of which are children. When a child goes missing, a hospital has a code amber procedure that they follow. Existing code amber scenarios initiate a clear response but making sure all needed staff are aware of the event is critical to ensuring a fast and effective response.

We Can Help

  • Send alerts to all staff or a subset of available on-call staff
  • Launch pre-defined emergency response plans
  • Ensure all necessary staff are made aware of an amber code as soon as possible

Here's How

By utilizing alerts, surveys and response tracking to identify areas a missing child could be, the search for them can be easily coordinated and the search progress tracked.

  1. Alerting Staff

    When a code amber incident is launched by an administrator, they can launch a pre-defined event which includes all the required steps of a code amber response.

  2. Search Tracking

    As staff search the immediate area, they can respond to the initial alerts to confirm that they have searched their assigned area, as well as indicate if they have discovered the missing child.

  3. Search Monitoring

    During an active code amber incident, administrators can monitor responses from staff as they come in. When searches of a given area are complete, staff can be redirected as needed to other key search locations.
