Abstract

A “phased” Emergency Operation Plan is designed to meet, with a flexible response, the demands of any serious casualty situation. Such a plan has been established at Brooke Army Medical Center. Traditionally, hospitals have indiscriminately mobilized all medical staff and support personnel to pre-assigned locations regardless of the extent of the crisis. In a large medical center or teaching hospital, this “all or none” response results in a tremendous expenditure of effort and personnel. The Brooke Plan distinction, is based on a rapid but graded manpower and facility mobilization in response to variable groups of injured patients. The plan is divided into three phases.
