Sleds, chairs and stairs

drill

Evacuating a mock patient from the Transplantation Center (WP 9) were Anthony Cardona, Facilities (top left), Brian Givens, Patient Transport (top right), and Jim Atwood, Facilities (bottom). The Saint Raphael Campus will hold a drill April 10.


During a March 20 evacuation drill at the York Street Campus, staff from Facilities, Environmental Services, Patient Transport, Food and Nutrition and Materials Management transported mock patients on special sleds and stair chairs. During the drill, the hospital activated its Incident Command Center and four nursing units evacuated mannequins and people posing as patients. Staff   from all other units completed Department Rapid Assessment forms and some patient tracking forms  to familiarize themselves with the evacuation process.
