The Phoenix National Disaster Medical System conducted a successful Full-Scale Exercise on Thursday. We sponsored the exercise (with our federal cooperative agreement funds) along with the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Health Care System. The NDMS is a federally coordinated system that supplements the Nation’s medical response capability when local resources are overwhelmed during disasters. The exercise tested several important areas of disaster response that affect the healthcare system in the Phoenix area, including the ability of hospitals to receive, triage, and transfer patients. Our team’s role was to assist with patient tracking, communications, and emergency operations center management. Well done.
