LAU Medical Center Rizk Hospital has organized a live drill to reinforce its Emergency preparedness plan.
The primary objective of this drill is to train the medical center’s dedicated team of physicians, nurses, staff, and stakeholders on executing the set Emergency Preparedness Plan in the event of any potential war or disaster scenario.
With a focus on enhancing our emergency response protocols, the life drill will familiarize participants with different codes of alerts and zones to effectively accommodate casualties based on the severity of their injuries.
The drill involved approximately 100 mock disaster or war casualties, who have be transported to the LAUMC-RH Emergency Department by Red Cross ambulances or on foot.
One of the key aspects of this exercise is to train and assess the coordination and integration among various teams, particularly:
- The Command Center Team,
- The Incident Command Team,
- TheCasualties Coordinators Team.
By keeping their teams prepared and well-equipped to perform efficiently under emergency situations, LAUMC-RH reinforces its commitment to providing medical services to the community with care and excellence.
