Active Shooter Recommendations and Resources

An active shooter in a hospital? It’s a situation you hope to never face. However, taking these active shooter recommendations prepare you just in case.

Hospital Active Shooter Recommendations

Recently we detailed active shooter recommendations from Perspectives. EC News duplicates much of that content. However their lead article is thought provoking. It provides 8 solid recommendations, including a table of resources and references from:

  • Joint Commission
  • Homeland Security
  • FBI
  • AHA
  • CA Hospital Association
  • UCSF

A recent active shooter situation in a New York hospital puts us on notice. Accordingly, develop a plan using these active shooter recommendations. In addition, it’s a good subject for an emergency management drill.
