Code Gray drill to involve every hospital department

Wednesday, May 1 will see all six hospital campuses participating in a safety drill for Code Gray emergencies — specifically threats posed by a combative individual. To reach all employees, a mini drill will be conducted in every unit/department with area-specific teams. The participating locations are Medical Center, East Campus, Surgical Hospital, Children’s Hospital, Behavioral Medicine Center and Murrieta. 

Department heads must select a point person who will be responsible for facilitating that department’s mini drill. This person could be a safety coordinator, educator, charge nurse or another capable individual. Please submit your department's designee information no later than Thursday, Feb. 7.

The goal of this drill is to help employees better understand Code Gray situations and support offered for potential situations of workplace violence.
