On February 22 Middlesex Hospital faced a serious emergency and violent attack—a car was intentionally driven into the glass doors of its ED before the driver set himself on fire outside the hospital entrance.  What followed was a test of staff skills, planning, execution, teamwork, and extraordinary dedication and resilience.

At CHA’s request to share information about the nature and scope of the crisis including, Middlesex’s emergency planning process, how multi-disciplinary responsibilities were coordinated, what worked, and lessons learned, the Middlesex management team has graciously agreed to do a member briefing on Tuesday, May 8, 2018.  This program will be helpful to hospital security officers, engineers, patient care leaders, risk managers, public relations staff, human resources leaders, compliance staff, ED physician and nursing leaders, emergency planners, and anyone responsible for responding to a difficult emergent situation.  

Registration for this event is now closed.
