Implementation Guide: Standardized, Plain Language Emergency Alerts

North Carolina Hospital Association. (n.d.). Implementation Guide: Standardized, Plain Language Emergency Alerts. (Accessed 11/2/2017.)

The North Carolina Hospital Emergency Management Council and the North Carolina Hospital Association formed a task force to standardize emergency alert notifications. The proposed alerts are based on plain language communications, with three optional universal code color alerts remaining, and address the three types of events that occur in hospitals: facility alerts (e.g., hazardous material spills and fires), security alerts (e.g., active shooters and missing persons), and medical events (e.g., visitor falls, cardiac or respiratory arrest).
