Pediatric Hazard Vulnerability Analysis Template
Emergency Medical Services for Children Innovation and Improvement Center. (2021). Pediatric Hazard Vulnerability Analysis Template.
This downloadable Excel template can help regions determine hazards’ impacts on a region and how prepared regions and/or hospitals are for the pediatric consequences of each hazard. The tool categorizes hazard impact along three dimensions, each with specific pediatric considerations, allowing users to produce an overall vulnerability and risk score for each hazard. This tool is not meant to be a thorough checklist of preparation, but instead spur the inclusion of general pediatric considerations into risk analysis, disaster planning, and emergency response. It is not intended to replace a hospital HVA with facility-specific processes.
