Field Drill-JEMEx 2013

1. FIELD DRILL AND HOTWASH:

A mass casualty accident has been designed which will be conducted after training on all the tracks. This is to be simulated at the Kachari Playground, Jorhat town with over a 100 injured victims & the town’s response agencies is expected to respond accordingly.

A triage area is planned to be set up at the site of the “disaster” where all injured would be triaged, applying the skills learnt during the training sessions.

Every single victim’s triaged is intended to be monitored by local evaluators trained at JEMEx.

The colour coded patients (red, yellow, green, black) is then to be transported by GVK- EMRI 108 Ambulance Service to Jorhat Medical College, District hospital & other prominent private hospitals with realistic time delays built into the system.

At each hospital, the hospital emergency plan is to be set into motion, and doctors, nurses, stretchers, pharmacies and equipment is expected to be mobilized to accommodate the additional flow of patients.

Doctors trained at JEMEx2013 is intended to run the casualty wards applying their newly acquired trauma care skills to patient care.

The entire drill is going to be monitored by local evaluators in addition to the faculties and will be recorded on video. A final report will be prepared under the supervision of ASDMA to examine areas of strength and improvement.

Following the drill a debriefing session called “Hot Wash” is planned to be conducted. In this session, all participants will self-scrutinize & work on their respective areas for improvement.
