Emergency/Disaster Planning for Physicians

Friday, March 25, 2011 at 11:41:17 AM

Providers should be aware of their role and the procedure to take place in the event of a local emergency or disaster requiring mobilization of resources. The hospital will establish an Emergency Operations Center where the Chief Medical Officer, Rajesh Davé, MD, or his designee will determine what the provider needs are. If you are contacted to respond to the disaster, you will be told where to proceed for staging, and you should respond immediately. Hospitalists, Emergency Room physicians, and Resident Staff will be utilized if possible, but depending on the need, other members of the Medical Staff may be called. Please keep your emergency contact information current with the Medical Staff Office to insure that you may be reached in the event of a disaster.
