Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health. (2017). Nevada Crisis Standards of Care (CSC) Plan.
This state crisis standards of care plan supports state medical surge capacity and capability planning and provides a mechanism for expanding medical surge operations. It includes sections on: Statewide Concept of Operations, Clinical Concept of Operations, Healthcare Sector Adaptations and Considerations, Public Information, Communications Plans and Protocols, Legal Considerations, Plan Development and Maintenance, and several helpful appendices. While this plan serves as a replicable example of coordination, the critical care triage criteria uses SOFA cutoff levels; these need to be updated.
