#GMVEMSC: Regional Quarterly Triage (QTD Starts Tonight!

Don’t forget:  Quarterly Triage Day (QTD) Drill starts tonight, Monday, November 19, 2018, with a couple of changes: 

·         This time, QTD will start 8;00 PM (2000 Hours), and end at 8 PM (2000 Hours) the next day. 

·         All hospitals will monitor MCI radios from 8:00 pm to Midnight (2000-2400) on the first day and from 8 AM to Noon (0800-1200) the next day.  EMS crews transporting patients to a hospital during these times should provide a brief message to the hospital via the MCI radios.

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

All hospitals will 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 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 our region be better prepared.
