The March 19th NSPA coalition meeting will focus on patient tracking - what it is, why it's helpful, and how it works in VHASS. This meeting will be in preparation for two upcoming table-top activities. One will be an internal exercise at the April 2nd Regional Workshop and the other will be at the April 16th coalition meeting in conjunction with a table top exercise being held in Patrick County.
This meeting will include general patient tracking information as well as some scenario based examples. It should be well worth your time!
BONUS: I have spoken with Kevin Rose from the San Mateo County Emergency Management Office. They were in charge when Asiana Air Flight 241 crashed on the runway at San Francisco International Airport. 181 patients were transported by EMS from that scene and patient tracking was used. Kevin has given me a lot of information and hopes to be available to call in to our meeting and share his story from that day.
Here is the call-in information for the meeting - if possible, utilize the WebEx online platform - you don't want to miss the slide presentation!
