ABSTRACT

Arizona Crisis Standards of Care Plan: A Comprehensive and Compassionate Response, 3rd Edition   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Introduction: "The Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) worked with public health, emergency management, first responders, healthcare, legal, and other partners to create this Crisis Standards of Care (CSC) Plan for the State of Arizona. This collaborative, multi-year project included strategic planning sessions, interagency workgroups, and a public engagement campaign. [...] During a public health disaster, the State Disaster Medical Advisory Committee (SDMAC) will convene to develop incident-specific priorities and guidance for the delivery of healthcare and use of scarce medical resources. This guidance may address: [1] Triage for emergency medical services (EMS); [2] Primary, secondary, and tertiary triage for healthcare facilities; [3] Expanded scopes of practice, as approved by regulatory authorities; [4] Priorities for medical resources including space, staff, and supplies; and [5] Considerations for healthcare access points, including hospitals, out-of-hospital facilities, and alternate care sites."
