Highly Infectious Disease Tabletop
April 27 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
This is a facilitated discussion Tabletop intended to probe and explore the healthcare system’s ability to identify and stabilize a patient potentially infected with an airborne transmitted highly infectious disease; to initiate care and implement special protocols that may be required for the protection of the healthcare facility staff; and to coordinate such care with other Coalition partners, including emergency medical services (EMS), public health and emergency management.
The purpose of this exercise is to evaluate, review, and measure the regional response elements related to CVHC, in which the coalition must: 1) Ensure that the EMS system is capable of safely transporting patients with a highly infectious, airborne disease, 2) Enhance the competency of health care workers, including EMS personnel in the coalition, and clinical laboratories, and, by supporting annual training and exercises, 3) Rapidly communicate the presence of a PUI across the health care coalition, including health departments, and 3) Assess and report on PPE supplies from/for their members. The results of this exercise may be used to support fulfill the coalition-related HPP measures.
