This article reviews the adaptation and use of the Incident Command System (ICS) to manage patients with high-consequence infectious diseases, and how this Biocontainment Unit ICS interfaced with the overall hospital ICS to limit negative effects on hospital operations. The authors describe how it was tested and refined through functional and tabletop exercises.
