"This can show up anywhere at any time, so you just have to be prepared for it," says Eric Alberts, head of Emergency Preparedness for Orlando Health.

Fortunately, when the patient with MERS-CoV arrived, Dr. P. Philips Hospital was already on the lookout for the virus because Community Hospital in Munster, Ind, had seen the first US MERS case just a week before. In addition, thanks to the efforts of Alberts in pushing for a MERS drill the previous Summer, hospital staff memebers had already practiced what to do when a potential MERS patient arrives.
...
Although the Joint Commission requires accredited facilities to prepare for a mass infectious disease event, facilities do vary in their individual level of preparedness, Alberts says. In addition to reviewing the CDC's preparedness checklist at as well as the World Health Organization's most current information, consider drills to test your own facility's preparations.
Alberts relied heavily on the CDC information when planning the drill at Dr. P. Philips Hospital and says that it was one of the best drills he'd ever organized because of the involvement he got from local government agencies that work with Orlando Health on regular hazard vulnerability analysis. In July of 2013, the hospital administration, along with local fire rescue, law enforcement, emergency preparedness and health agencies had done a table-top exercise. This was followed by an August of 2013 full-scale exercise.
Part of the reason Dr. P. Philips Hospital ranks the threat of mass infectious disease so highly is that it is one of the closest hospitals to the major Orlando tourist destinations of Disney World, Sea World, Universal Studios and the convention center, Alberts and Crespo say. However, any healthcare provider may potentially see a MERS patient.
"The lessons learned from this drill were huge, not only recognizing the threat as real but also what we had to do within the hospital when triaging patients," Alberts says.
...
"People were pretty scared about it," Alberts says.
...
"One of the big things we learned during the exercise was that our infection control and prevention folks had to be there engaged and proactive in the response to this situation," Alberts says. He adds that after the drill, the hospital made it a practice to station a member of the infection control team outside an isolation room to monitor infection control precautions such as tracking of staff and visitors entering the room, donning the appropriate protective clothing and adhering to hand washing protocols.
...
Even though the patient was identified relatively quickly, tracking all the potential exposures was one of the big challenges, Alberts says.
