AHRQ Tool for Evaluating Core Elements of Hospital Drills
Hospitals must be prepared to respond to public health emergencies that may create a sudden demand on services. Disaster drills allow hospitals to test response capabilities to these emergencies in real time.
AHRQ has developed this Tool for Evaluating Core Elements of Hospital Drills. This tool can be used by hospitals to identify the most important strengths and weaknesses in disaster drills. The results can be applied to training and drill planning.
