"The San Francisco Pandemic Influenza Infection Control Tabletop Exercise was conducted over a 4-hour period on September 14, 2006. All nine San Francisco Hospitals and Seton Medical Center of San Mateo County were represented at the exercise. The goal is to practice coordination and communication activities in a pandemic influenza scenario among hospital infection control professionals, hospital emergency preparedness coordinators, and Sections of the San Francisco Department of Public Health. The objectives are: Identify thresholds that would trigger an emergency response activation or a change in infection control standards within each hospital before and during an influenza pandemic; and improve communication between emergency preparedness coordinators and infection control professionals as they prepare for their hospital's infectious disease emergency responses."
