Active Shooter Readiness of Health Systems: A New Patient Safety Issue
TMIT is delighted to have Greg Botz, MD, Professor of Critical Care at MD Anderson Cancer Center, brief us on a new and critical issue: "Active Shooter Readiness of Healthcare Systems." There are issues that are unique to hospitals and health systems that differ greatly from those at schools and other public places. Both patients and caregivers are vulnerable to both shooters and standard operations of law enforcement. For instance, an SOP is shutting down the power to a facility combating an active shooter. This is another dimension of work place violence that deserves attention. Dr. Botz will be joined by leaders in healthcare security and law enforcement, who will underscore the unique and critical issues in healthcare that support a multi-disciplinary approach. A second topic will be "Patient Safety for Children Undergoing CT Imaging." The contributions of Dr. Steve Swensen, Professor of Radiology at the Mayo Clinic, and others will be addressed, and a "call to action" will be made to support reducing preventable exposure of children to ionizing radiation.
