Hospitals

Introduction

Hospitals are primarily responsible for preserving and protecting the health of patients, as well as providing a prompt and adequate response to emergencies that may arise at any time. The first few minutes before an emergency in a hospital are critical, can mean a permanent physical and/or mental disability or death to the patient. In order to achieve the prompt action of hospitals, appropriate emergency protocols must be in place and in place, allowing quick action to deal with critical situations.

The objective of the hospital's health sector self-protection plan is to ensure the optimal use of human and material resources, in order to ensure the protection of people through emergency and evacuation intervention, minimizing possible human losses and/or materials, which may be derived from an emergency situation. In order to achieve prompt action, it is necessary to develop and apply the appropriate emergency protocol, in which the communication of information is fundamental.

Hospital Centers

Hospitals have a high concentration of patients and users who in many cases due to their illness are unable to act autonomously in an emergency situation without assistance from the center staff. For this reason, it is extremely important that protocols and drills be established for the continuous training of personnel and external assistance services, for effective action in cases of major crises such as an evacuation.

Hospitals must have multiple action procedures according to the level of urgency per incident and a deployment of immediate response operative personnel to respond and perform an initial assessment to the victims and the area of the event, determining the nature or type, characteristics and extent of the emergency situation through established evaluation protocols.

A hospital is particularly sensitive to any situation that threatens its energy or water supply, in the event of acts of nature (earthquakes, fires, etc.) that endanger the integrity of the building and the lives of patients, as well as that of the staff. In the repositories of chemical substances for hospital use there is a high degree of risk of leakage, explosions, pollution, etc. These being some of the main threats.
