Yesterday I participated in the Region J GA Hospital Coalition Simulated Emergency Exercise. The event was a Hurricane coming from the Gulf so the effects hit the center of the State and Patient evacuation would be towards on near the coast.
I was working out of Memorial Hospital in Savannah, which is the Region Coordinating Hospital. We actually had a team of 5 working the event with us and we logged in other Hospital check ins and passed messages back & forth. in a couple cases, where a Hospital could not reach us we had to work via Relay.
It went well, we learned a lot… and we were highly commended for our professionalism and ability to get communications in and out… Later in the month I will be attending a statewide seminar in Atlanta.
