The key to evacuation readiness is the ability to quickly activate your evacuation plan on every floor. Evacuation activities should focus on patient preparation, assigning horizontal movement teams, establishing patient holding areas, and implementing a command support structure. To accomplish these tasks a standardized set of tools needs to be readily accessible in order for a healthcare facility’s evacuation plan to be truly operational. These tools are included DQE's Incident Solutions evacuation offering. The PACE Evacuation Toolbox contains items such as the Patient Evacuation Go-Pouch, Patient Mobility Level Wristbands, Evacuation Door Signs, Patient Information and Tracking Forms, Evacuation Group Vests, and more to provide a standardized process for organizing patient evacuation.
