Posted: 23 October 2013

Holy Spirit Hospital has partnered with local emergency responders to plan a full-scale disaster exercise on Sunday, October 27, from 8 a.m. until noon. This exercise will be held to test the emergency response of the hospital, as well as responding agencies.

This disaster exercise will involve many hospital departments, including the John R. Dietz Emergency Center, and will include staff who will be acting as patients. These staff members will be wearing makeup to simulate injuries. Emergency responders will be staged in the main parking lot of the hospital before and after the exercise.
