2019 PDC Summit

Is Your Facility Management Team Prepared to Overcome a Catastrophic Event?

Mar 18, 2019 1:45pm ‐ Mar 18, 2019 2:45pm

Credits: None available.


Too often when a new hospital comes online or a new system or equipment is installed, facility management teams receive a PowerPoint presentation, video, or canned training material. These teams must know exactly what to do the moment an emergency event occurs; how does a video help prepare them? This panel discussion focuses on the importance of equipment training. The tools and tactics discussed will keep facility management teams trained and provide tips on how to onboard new team members.

Learning Objectives:

1.) List training criteria for specifications and RFPs.

2.)  Identify the impacts of unprepared staff in the event of a catastrophic event.

3.)  Describe case studies and scenarios through an interactive audience response session.

4.)  Develop training curricula specific to equipment failure and emergency preparedness.

I received information to take back to my facility to make changes to our program documents that may be lacking. Very good session.
