Medical Disaster Preparedness and Recovery in the 2007 Minnesota Bridge Collapse

January 15, 2008, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CST

Bioelectronics Manager Phillip Gill, Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC), Minneapolis, explains how the most difficult thing during a crisis is “communication and transportation.” HCMC is the regional medical disaster center and was put to the test in the aftermath of the August ’07 I-35 bridge collapse. When the cell system was deluged, they relied on backup technologies including walkie-talkies and Vocera to direct activity. They describe disaster plans pre- and post-crisis, and other new technologies that are built into future disaster plans. THIS TELECONFERENCE IS BEING PRESENTED VIA WEBCAST. PLEASE ALLOW TIME TO DOWNLOAD THE PLUGIN BEFORE THE TELECONFERENCE BEGINS.
