Emergency Management Training, Infant Abduction Drill (Code Amber)
November 14, 2013
On Thursday November 13, 2013 with the help of Mendota Police Department the hospital tested their Infant Abduction Policy. Testing this plan helps Mendota Community Hospital meet the Illinois Department of Public Health Emergency Preparedness requirements while providing valuable training for staff. The hospital is required to have community partners involved in testing and training of Emergency Operations Plans. Achieving good results in the event of an Infant Abduction (Code Amber) situation requires strong team work and good communication both internally and externally.

After the drill a critique of the event was held to learn areas that need improvement.
