Event description

Description

This is an 8-hour course that provides a working foundation of the HICS concept. The course is designed to train leadership personnel on HICS Staff/General Staff primary positions and concludes with a one-hour discussion-based scenario to walk personnel through activation of their position, role, and responsibilities.

The focus of the course is on organizing the hospital team, implementing command and control measures, and decision-making. HICS is intended to help hospitals respond quickly with structure and a focused direction during any emergency. The course is delivered to meet requirements from The Joint Commission (TJC). The course facilitator will introduce participants to HICS, describe the system's principal components and to provide a rationale for hospital application of a comprehensive incident management system intended for use in both emergent and non-emergent situations. Training objectives include:

1) Reveal an increased awareness of the impact that the Incident Command System has on healthcare facilities.
2) Describe the relationship of ICS, NIMS and HICS to the healthcare facility.
3) Understand the need for hospital planning and the use of a standardized incident management system.
4) Understand the HICS model and its integration into the current hospital organization.
5) Prepare individual staff members from emergencies
