Healthcare environments face a unique set of risks from the diverse and often stressed collection of people on site at any given time. Safety officials within a healthcare facility must be prepared to manage this population in a variety of crisis situations – including violence requiring a lockdown, increased patient volumes resulting in elevated staffing requests, and large-scale community disasters.
Crisis situations ranging from severe weather, community disasters, violence, and critical system failures take center stage daily at healthcare facilities. When it comes to response, it’s not just the potential for loss of life. A slow or ineffective response can also result in regulatory penalties, financial losses, diminished reputation, and civil liability. The manner in which your facility responds to such events can have a profound effect on the outcome – and on you personally. Of course, it can also spell the difference between life and death.
Mitigate Your Environmental Exposures
Whether it be severe weather alerts sent to employees or mandated notifications communicated to your surrounding community, the environment is a driving force in the implementation of an emergency notification system and preparedness program. Healthcare facilities are at the core of our communities’ disaster recovery plans and must be prepared. In addition, hospitals and clinics have both compliance and regulatory requirements, as well as a general duty to provide a safe working environment. You can automatically initiate Omnimodal Notifications using predefined Scenarios in an effort to mitigate risk.
Be Prepared for Violence
Although you can’t always predict or prevent threats and violent acts made by employees, visitors, patients, or strangers on your facility property, you can plan to limit the impact. And, unfortunately, healthcare facilities are often a target. By sending Omnimodal Notifications in a timely manner, along with the associated procedures, you can be better prepared and limit the potential impact of any emergency.
Resolve Infrastructure Outages & Interruptions
Power and network outages and technical failures can all hinder the ability to continue conducting hospital operations. When it comes to mission-critical systems, downtime can impact patient care. You can get a jump on resolving these threats to your infrastructure by automatically connecting your systems to your emergency notification initiatives. Your team will gain valuable time by being alerted immediately when your systems go amiss.
You can send an emergency notification to not just many, as multimodal would suggest, but to every available communication channel to assure it reaches your audience – thus, Omnimodal. Learn more
You can initiate any series of actions to notify, mobilize, and collaborate with your team within seconds – all while providing them the documented procedures to follow. You can capture your team’s response plans in a sequence of predefined actions to be initiated in one step; in one click, through the web or from mobile devices. Learn more
You can connect other autonomously monitored systems to Omnilert, which is a major key to speed when it comes to implementing your response efforts. Whether it be integrating notifications from infrastructure intrusions, severe weather, or other safety-related conditions – Omnilert can tie it all together for you – automatically triggering a predefined series of actions. This eliminates the additional time required to take action during a critical incident and further reduces the margin of error and period of vulnerability. Learn more
