This is the 4th module DVD in the Hospital First Receiver Series. It explains the importance of hospital decontamination plans for large numbers of casualties in the event of a major terrorist, hazmat or natural catastrophe resulting in contaminated patients. Without a plan, hospitals risk contamination of staff, patients and the facility.
This program, which follows the Joint Commission's accreditation standards for decontamination and emergency planning, outlines the process of quickly mobilizing a hospital decon team. It is ideal for training new decon teams as well as for refresher training.
