Hospital incident command system

The (HICS) Hospital Incident Command System

During floods, fires, hurricanes, earthquakes, man-made emergencies, threats, or even planned events, hospitals have to respond in a way that meets the needs of patients, staff, and visitors. Hospital Incident Command System (HICS) gives them a framework on which to build a response quickly and scale it to fit the magnitude of the situation. It’s important because managing a large-scale incident is not something most nurses, doctors, or administrators do on a day-to-day basis.
