Building a Successful Code Captain Program
Too often Emergency Preparedness programs in hospitals are under staffed and under resourced (the mighty team of one). Launching and operating a volunteer Emergency Code Captain program can help expand the reach of an emergency manager and help build an overall culture of preparedness across all hospital departments. This presentation will go over setting up the program, creating buy-in and incentives, and how this initiative fits within an overall hospital's emergency preparedness program.
