All FHS staff working in a hospital-hosted building are required to review the Emergency Code Awareness information and complete the associated quiz. There are two presentations and you should review the information appropriate to your environment.
If you are in a McMaster area of a hospital-hosted building review this information and complete this quiz.
If you are in a clinical area of a hospital-hosted building review this information and complete this 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.

There is no quiz associated with the Lockdown information.
