There is a need to test how hospitals can cope with a high influx of patients from an incident or daily flow. The Emergo Train System Hospital set is used to evaluate a surge in the medical capacity of Emergency department, Surgery department and Intensive care unit. A high impact on daily surge can influence the ability to maintain the normal quality of care. Decisions about prioritizations and medical ambitions are needed, whether other vice patients' health will be at risk or worse, there will be a risk of preventable death.
ETS Hospital set contains training material for setting up, running and evaluating Hospital exercises. The set includes:
- Staff symbols (doctors, nurses, other hospital staff)
- Signs to visualize the hospital
- Symbols for resources such as for example ventilator, bed with monitor
- Treatment stickers
- Different templates for example treatment time
The Hospital set is available in three sizes: large, medium, small. The large correspond to a University Hospital, medium to a regional and small to a local hospital. For exact content of the sets, please contact the ETS Competence center.
