ED Preparedness Discussion

Preparedness-DiscussionLast month, Emergency Department physicians and nurses, department chiefs, hospital administrators and safety management personnel gathered together for the Annual Emergency Department Disaster Preparedness Round Table Discussion. Lead by course director Pete Sananman, MD, assistant professor of Clinical Emergency Medicine at PPMC, the conference gathered together key stakeholders in an effort to share and disseminate information which will aid in the improvement of Hospital Emergency Department (ED) Specific disaster planning. Attendees from the three main spheres of expertise (safety/facilities, administration and clinical) spent half a day interfacing and exchanging ideas on training techniques, and creating and implementing an ED-specific disaster plan.

Many thanks to all who participated and attended the discussion!
