Ep058: Implement Emergency Response Plans

nclex prep nursing podcasts
  • Nurses frequently use a color-coding system to triage patients, as identified by the facility
    • Example:
      • Red: highest priority, life-threatening yet survivable injuries
      • Yellow: medium priority, injuries but not life-threatening
      • Green: low priority, can wait an extended time, non life threatening
      • Black: deceased on arrival, or actively dying
    • Have both an internal and external plan
      • This is what you do when you’re already at work
      • This is what you do when you’re at home, but a disaster has occurred and aid is needed at the facility
