Code Triage Drill on 8/17/2017
Don’t be alarmed! Pardee is participating in a multi-agency safety exercise testing our Code Triage-Surge Plan. This means we’re working with local law enforcement, fire departments, emergency medical services, emergency management, MAHPC, SMAT II team, Hendersonville Health and Rehab, and Four Seasons Compassion for Life to provide our hospital personnel with guidelines and valuable training in the event of an influx of patients.
For a brief period of time this morning you might notice some additional activity. In addition to the Pardee team members engaged in this training exercise, you could see a Triage tent set up on the Emergency Department deck. This is a paper-based exercise; no actual patients or actors will be a part of this drill. Ongoing patient care will continue without interruption.
Thank you for your patience with us as we work to strengthen our team and our response time in the case of emergency situations. All media inquiries should be directed to Erica Allison at (828) 329-5089.
