A mass shooting puts your healthcare facility in a combat situation – which goes on for maximum 8-minutes. So many cities and states have experienced the mass shooting catastrophe including – Orlando, Maryland Malls, Wisconsin etc. and are perfect examples of kinetic and chaotic situations.
Unique challenges are presented if there are active shooting incidents in a healthcare facility. Healthcare professionals may have to face the challenge of making a decision to stay with or leave the patients and visitors who won’t be able to evacuate fast enough due to age, injury, illness etc.
With many such incidents happening more and more, research reveals that the activities have quadrupled in last few years. Killing might be over by the time police enforcement can respond, and you need to know how to respond in the first few seconds so that the consequences come under your favor. You and your healthcare team needs to be proactive, quick and respond correctly. Also, healthcare professionals do have a duty towards their patients and they are responsible for them. As mass shooting incidents are highly dynamic, there should be certain ethical decisions made in this regard to ensure minimum loss of life.
In this session, expert speaker Bo Mitchell advice you on how to prepare yourself and your healthcare team and respond in a mass shooting scenario in your workplace or in any other public place. You need to continue caring for your patients, but if it becomes impossible without putting others at life risk, you need to make certain decisions to avoid it completely.
