All FHS staff working in a hospital environment are required to review the Emergency Code Awareness information and complete the associated quiz.
Submit the completed quiz to the FHS Safety Office and we will record the information in your safety education record. We are located in room 1J11A of the Health Sciences Center and our fax number is 905-528-8539.
For a complete listing of Hospital Emergency Codes review the document posted here. It is important to note that not all codes require a response from FHS staff. Always refer to your local protocols for the appropriate response during a code call.

An on-line information session on what to do during a Lockdown event on McMaster campus is offered by McMaster Security Services. FHS staff are encouraged to review the information as it does apply to the main campus.
There is no quiz associated with the Lockdown information.
