Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
Given the important services that healthcare organizations provide, responding resources should be demobilized as soon as they are no longer needed for emergency response. The process for returning them to their day-to-day function should be expedited. Some organizations, as well as elements of the HCRT, may be demobilized while other elements are still operational. Individual organizations manage their own demobilization actions, but they should inform the HCRT of their status so that situational awareness can be maintained across the Coalition.
The HCRT should define procedures for demobilizing its resources. These procedures can be listed in a checklist and included as a tool in the Healthcare Coalition’s EOP. Some examples of issues that could be included in a Coalition’s demobilization checklist include the following:
