SALT Triage First Receiver Train the Trainer
Resuming this project after COVID delay. Three facets of training/maintaining staff proficiency:
- SALT Triage First Receiver video, which should be viewed by anyone in your organization who might be put to the task of triage in the event that you have an MCI in your community that would result in self-presenting patients. Link: https://youtu.be/N7OG8a7vXnE
- Train the Trainer sessions for our Champions to review the concepts and receive training on our SALT ribbon bags, see emailed out April 27. We will distribute the ribbon bags for your facility to your Champion at these trainings.
- Your Champions bring their training and ribbon bags back to your facility, where they train your other staff on these SALT triage concepts, and how to use the ribbon bags, and maintain a regular competency program for your new hires and as part of annual training for current staff.
About half of hospitals have received their bags and participated in our SCWIHERC trainings in mid-May. Direct outreach to hospitals that haven’t is forthcoming. We really encourage all of our regional hospitals to join this project to ensure they have staff that know how to field triage self-presenting patients and their triage methods are consistent with EMS field triage.
CSC Updates: Doug Hill
Wisconsin Hospital Mutual Aid MOU- There is not a strong statewide desire to renew this document as a state. Opportunity to develop regional MOUs if desired, (what are next steps/follow up?)
CSC Concept of Operations- Doug Hill is developing as part of grant deliverables, but it leans more along the lines of allocation of scarce resources than crisis standards of care.
CSC Article: https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/15265161.2021.1925778 PDF of article available in Best Practices Folder of shared drive.
GE IV Contrast Shortage- Looks like we’re coming out of it. No current concerns.
TJC EM Standards Update Resources:
From Wakefield Brunswick:
AHEPP Webinar June 15 1100 recording will be posted to notes at http://www.scwiherc.org/june-15-2022-membership-meeting/ when available.
Lessons Learned and Best Practices from COVID-19 and other real events:
How are we remaining nimble for future variants/surge/vaccination/testing?
What else are we working on? Mass casualty drills, implementing SALT Triage in ED.
What else are we responding to? Current event in Dane County from June 13 storm, widespread power outages including some persisting into 48+ hours (as of the time of these notes being written). Compounded by heat advisory. More widespread severe storms anticipated tonight through whole region and state, be prepared! Current lessons learned: cell networks were jammed immediately after power outage, don’t forget basics like Wireless Priority Service, WISCOM radio, GETS cards, FirstNet. When SCWIHERC Responder has communication issues (Jennifer lost power during event and cell service was spotty for a few hours), that will be posted on EMResource under coalition header at top of page (hover over Jennifer’s name), and as out of office reply on email when possible, with further instruction.
