Emergency Management scenarios?

Mar 08, 2018

Hello all, 

I am building a yearly requirement course for our employees in healthcare. I would like to read some thoughts on Emergency Management scenarios that I might be able to use.. 

Thanks in advance

Matilda - here are some possibilities

Code Orange, Building Evacuation, Emergency Transport of Units to surrounding hospitals, data breach of medical records, active shooter, lockdowns for disasters, bacteria or virus outbreaks, external factors (explosions, bridge closure, water main/gas main breaks, etc.) that curtails 25-35% of hospitals employees from coming to work, hostage taking, electrical outage beyond the power backups, etc. regards.

Hi Allison, 

I am trying to come up with an exercise or two within the course to challenge learners. I guess I am trying to find out how can I create a game within the course to have the learner know about code blue, code orange etc and release what's at stake if do not prepare and respond in a timely manner. I hope this makes sense...

Hi Matilda,

It sounds like you should create a scenario where you ask the learner to make decisions that rely on their knowledge of code blue, code orange, etc. Based on their decisions, they'll see what the consequences are.

Here are a couple examples of scenario-based courses to inspire you:

You mentioned "Active Shooter" as a topic. One of the more compelling training videos I've seen is the FBI's "Run. Hide. Fight" video on what to do if you are caught in an active shooter situation: https://www.fbi.gov/about/partnerships/office-of-partner-engagement/active-shooter-resources/responding-to-an-active-shooter-crisis-situation

This is a great example of a memorable video because of how it engages your emotions. It is actually kind of scary and does a good job of helping you imagine yourself in the situation. That makes you pay attention in a way that a boring page-turner e-learning never can.
