VHASS Communications Drill – Medically Vulnerable Populations (Non-Hospital)
November 3 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
An event every month that begins at 9:00 am on day First of the month, repeating until December 31, 2021
The Regional Healthcare Coordination Center (RHCC) will be conducting a regional emergency communications drill with all healthcare organizations that serve medically vulnerable populations (Long Term Care, Dialysis, Hospice/Home Health, Ambulatory Surgery Centers, ICF/IID, etc.).
At 9AM the RHCC will create a VHASS Event called “Regional Communications Drill – Date” and send a text message alert to all users with an active VHASS alerting profile. Participating organizations will have a 3 hour window to participate in the drill. Completing the communications drill takes approximately 2 minutes.
To assist with regulatory and accreditation documentation, organizations who complete the below steps will receive written certification of their participation in the emergency communications drill from CVHC.
To participate in the drill:
- Post a message acknowledging the drill in the VHASS Event Log by 12PM
- Long Term Care and Dialysis Organizations will also need to post an update to their respective VHASS status boards (Dialysis job aid / LTC job aid).
