This 4-hour course covers the design, development, conduct, and evaluation of hospital exercises, with instruction on how to coordinate regulatory, accreditation and grant exercise requirements.
The course utilizes the concepts and tools from the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) and incorporates accreditation requirements (such as The Joint Commission) while focusing on the flexibility of exercise design and modification of available tools to meet specific hospital needs, and facilitating participation in an exercise that coordinates with local, state, and federal partners.
This course was developed under the CHA Hospital Preparedness Program for hospital staff responsible for exercise development, conduct, evaluation, and after action reporting.

This tool was was developed by the CHA Hospital Preparedness Program to assist hospitals in development, implementation and evaluation of their exercises.
Individual exercises are part of an Exercise and Evaluation Cycle under the hospital’s Emergency Management Program. These exercises may be isolated within the hospital, or part of a larger community, or even statewide, exercise such as the California Statewide Medical Health Exercise. It is the intent of the checklist to provide an overview, guidance and resources for hospitals which allows a more coordinated effort and can be tailored to the facility.
