The August edition of EC News has an article on active shooter drills.
Active Shooter Drills
It recommends a two step process. One, a formal large-scale drill. And two, brief mini drills conducted in departments and units to prepare staff for the larger scale drill.
The September edition contains further information on this topic. It details what to do if your hospital is the crime scene. For example, how to manage the process including working with law enforcement and the media.
Analyze both articles and incorporate as needed into your emergency management plan.
