Disaster Available Supplies in Hospitals
ASPR TRACIE. (2022). Disaster Available Supplies in Hospitals (DASH) Tool.
Disaster Available Supplies in Hospitals (DASH) is an interactive tool that can help hospital emergency planners and supply chain staff estimate supplies that may need to be immediately available during various mass casualty incidents and infectious disease emergencies based on hospital characteristics. Comprised of four modules (pharmacy, burn, trauma, and personal protective equipment), DASH recommends average par levels for specific supplies that acute care hospitals may need to have on hand to respond to a disaster in their community until resupplied. Recommendations are based on user inputs about the size of the hospital, risks in the community, regional role/designation of the hospital, and other factors.
