Take-Away Points of the Lecture
1. BID-Needham utilizes an incident command structure during emergent events to organize work and link in with external response partners.
2. Medical staff may have many functions during emergencies depending on the event. They may triage or treat patients, hold a role in the command center as part of the incident management team, or coordinate patient evacuation in a last resort strategy.
3. The hospital faces many hazards; some are natural, man-made, internal (affecting the environment) or external (surge of patients).
