  • Description: Safety has a high priority in any healthcare facility and communication is an essential part of any safety program. Making sure that all employees know the specific fire plan for their department is essential to successfully executing that plan in an emergency. Here, Whitlock and Boone present their ambulatory unit's simple process to improve evacuation in a fire-related emergency. This process has helped them to ensure the safety of not only their patients and visitors but also their department's employees. 3 references
