HOSPITAL EMERGENCY CODES
Emergency codes are color-coded indicators used to alert all members of potential problems that may arise in healthcare facilities. These codes include criteria on how to respond to a specific situation, from direct attacks on staff members, extortion events to cardiac arrest.
Emergency codes help hospital staff understand how to manage emergencies effectively. Depending on the type of facility, emergency codes may be generated by internal administrative or surveillance personnel.
The emergency code can be initiated by dialing the set numbers from all the internal phones of the hospital. The system can serve economic, safe and different purposes by using the existing telephone infrastructure of the hospital. These systems consist of hospital infrastructure, pager, system switchboard and web software. Emergency codes are initiated by hospital staff, not by patients. Status reports, call quality and performance statistics, emergency code dates and time can be examined by entering the system from authorized computers connected to the hospital computer network.
The blue code is intended to ensure the successful resuscitation of patients with impaired or disappearing life symptoms and in need of urgent basic life support by trained personnel. Therefore, the blue code status and the procedure to be followed are much more urgent and important than others. Since it is not clear when the event will take place, it is necessary to be prepared at any time. The arrest of vital functions can be in the wards or in the departments such as radiology unit, polyclinics, even the refectory or the maintenance department. Since there are no doctors or nurses in such administrative units, calls from these places are much more important. For this reason, blue code calls (like all other color code calls) can be made not only in clinics, but also in any unit of our hospitals (including the additional building).
The pink code (child safety) is a system for informing security personnel in cases of abduction, disappearance and similar situations that may be directed to infants and children. In this way, the security team is quickly transferred to the scene and a controlled passage is applied at the entrance and exit of the hospital and preventive interventions are provided.
The aim of the white code is to ensure that the security personnel are informed and directed to the scene as quickly as possible in case of theft, physical assault and sexual harassment that may happen to the patient/relatives and employees in the hospital.
The red code is to ensure that security personnel are informed and directed to the scene of a fire in the hospital.
It is an automation system that enables the authorized personnel in the hospital to make consultation calls from the emergency call panel and room control units located in the patient rooms for a consultation branch they need in the emergency room by using their smart cards, and forwarding the address of these calls to the consultation deck telephone devices and ending the calls with the consultation team. All these calls can be recorded and reported.
