Spotlight on Mass Casualty Training During Emergency Medical Services Week

Englewood Hospital First Responders Prepare for Burn Disaster Scenario

In their continued commitment to providing the highest level of patient care, first responders at Englewood Hospital took the opportunity to strengthen their life-saving skills in the event of a large- scale disaster. Staff members teamed up with other Emergency Medical Services (EMS) agencies in the region to participate in a Burn Mass Casualty Incident Triage program during EMS Week. Paramedics, Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT’s) and nurses of the EMS Department learned to treat, evaluate and prioritize patient care and transport based on the severity of a person’s injuries. Emergency personnel then assessed “paper patients” in the aftermath of a mock building explosion, in accordance with the new American Burn Association guidelines.
