In-Place Patient Decontamination Training

1 Mins read

I came across a great example of using social media for disaster preparedness activities.  It is a YouTube video of Vandenberg’s 30th Medical Group training on In-place Patient Decontamination. Beyond just sharing the video with the world, this is also an opportunity to enhance the after-action (debriefing) conversations and the actual exercise report.

I came across a great example of using social media for disaster preparedness activities.  It is a YouTube video of Vandenberg’s 30th Medical Group training on In-place Patient Decontamination. Beyond just sharing the video with the world, this is also an opportunity to enhance the after-action (debriefing) conversations and the actual exercise report. It goes beyond just describing what happened, to actually being able to show what worked well or needs improvement.

I think having a social video also provides an opportunity to share the story with employees who might not have been involved in the actual exercise.  I think back on my Maintenance guys at Ventura County Medical Center and Santa Paula Hospital who could set up a decontamination tent really fast. It might have been nice for others across the organization to see them in action, as well, by making the video available on a hospital blog, the Intranet, or even on a YouTube channel. 

Making the video publically available is also an excellent way to share some of the behind-the-scenes work that hospitals do for the benefit of their communities.
