Facility staging for a non-Decon Disaster is more straightforward, requiring less equipment,
personnel, site security, and safety precautions.
Patients with Minor Care injuries, statistically the largest group, will be staged at the
northern-most area of the parking lot, with hospital entrance via doors on the Loma Vista
side of the facility. This plan additionally facilitates the transfer of Minor Care patients to
buses for transport to CFH Clinics and other off-site treatment areas.
Immediate Care patients will be staged adjacent to the Emergency Department ambulance
bay for rapid access. Delayed Care victims will be staged between the Loma Vista parking
garage and the MRI building, with hospital access via the main ED entrance and/or the
ambulance bay, depending upon numbers of Immediate Care cases.
With inclement weather, staging will occur within the Loma Vista parking garage.
