HEALL Evacuates the Collier Building!
Pictures from the Hospital Evacuation exercise that included medical students from the Health Education Across Latitudes and Longitudes (HEALL), nursing students, and public health professors as part of interdepartmental learning experiences.
Dr. Paul Rega, MD, designed this exercise that compared the Iserson method of evacuation (using bedsheets and mattresses) to the Paraslide method. Participants evacuated from the fourth floor of Collier Building down to ground level, strategizing on how best to do the evacuation, how many people it takes, how to carry, pros and cons of each method, etc. From the session, the Iserson method was found to be the preferred method and the one more likely to be employed in a crisis situation. These pictures are great examples of the interdisciplinary learning that takes place among the Department of Public Health and Preventive Medicine, Department of Medicine, and College of Nursing.
