Staff Education Tool: Hospital Emergency Response Checklist From WHO

Share on Facebook

The World Health Organization Regional Office for Europe has developed a free, downloadable hospital emergency response checklist.

 

The tool, geared toward hospital administrators and managers, "comprises current hospital-based emergency management principles and best practices and integrates priority action required for rapid, effective response to a critical event based on an all-hazards approach," according to the WHO.

 

The tool addresses nine key components of emergency response. They are as follows:

  1. Command and control
  2. Communication
  3. Safety and security
  4. Triage
  5. Surge capacity
  6. Continuity of essential services
  7. Human resources
  8. Logistics and supply management
  9. Post-disaster recovery

 

Download the hospital emergency response checklist (pdf) developed by the WHO for use by your facility.
