CHA Hospital Activation of the Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) Checklist
Wildfires, landslides and influenza surge are only some of the
incidents to hit California hospitals this past year. The
initial response to an emergency begins with recognition that an
incident may (or has) occurred.
In cases where the incident is likely to impact or disrupt
routine operations, and may require coordination of efforts and
response involvement among hospitals, Health Care Coalition
partners, EMS, public health, and environmental health.
Key management issues involving situational status, incident
characteristics and resource capabilities must be quickly
determined and communicated amongst response partners in order to
establish a common operating picture.
