According to Capt. Scott VanDerhoof, USAF, MSC, CAAMA, associate engineer and military fellow, Standards Interpretation Group, JCAHO, health care facilities, including freestanding reference laboratories, need to prepare a hazard vulnerability analysis (HVA)-JCAHO Environment of Care standard EC.1.4A.VanDerhoof provides an example of mitigation prior to an event.He says, "You should do more than merely placing an alarm on refrigerators and freezers containing stored blood.These alarms should be connected to a location where someone can be alerted if there is an emergency and the refrigerators lose power."Practice Drills According to VanDerhoof, JCAHO requires labs within a hospital to have two emergency management drills per year.VanDerhoof says it is important for every employee in all departments to be involved in the drills to the greatest extent possible."You want to be able to stress the system to make sure that you can get extra supplies and other necessary resources in the event of an influx of patients," VanDerhoof adds.It is acceptable to coordinate a drill in the midst of a community-wide mock disaster.Activation of the emergency response plan in the event of an actual incident in the community also meets the drill requirement.Sawchuk and VanDerhoof do not recommend the exclusive use of tabletop exercises as fulfillment for both emergency management drills.
