#GMVEMSC: FW: Regional Quarterly Triage Day: September 22

The region’s next Quarterly Triage Day (QTD) Drill will start at 8 am September 22, 2018, and end at 8 am on September 23, 2018. 

·        During this exercise every patient should receive a triage ribbon and a GREEN triage tag.

·        Hospitals should apply the tag and ribbon if EMS does not or if the patient self-transports.

All hospitals need to monitor MCI radios from 1 – 3 pm and from 8 – 10 pm.  EMS crews transporting patients to a hospital during these times should provide a brief message to the hospital via the MCI radios.

All hospitals should update their GDAHA Surgenet MCI page at least once every 8 hours, and practice entering patients into the OhTrac incident, which will be created by GDAHA for the drill.

There is more information in the attachments, including an MCI Communications Drill Job Aid, and a QTD flyer.  POST THE FLYERS.  Please help us get the word out to all line personnel, both in EMS and in EDs.

If you need additional GREEN triage tags or triage ribbons, contact GDAHA or Dayton MMRS.  Training materials (with CE) for both EMS and hospital personnel continue to be available at http://gmvemsc.org/training-mcicomm.html

Thank you for participating in QTD drills. You are helping the region better prepare.
