Recent Drills Help The Johns Hopkins Hospital Prepare for Emergencies


A drill of the Johns Hopkins Biocontainment Unit was held
on Thursday, Nov. 30. 

Staff members at The Johns Hopkins Hospital prepared in recent weeks for two emergency scenarios in different areas of the hospital.

A drill was conducted by the Johns Hopkins Biocontainment Unit on Thursday, Nov. 30. The drill began with a mock obstetrics patient with an unknown respiratory illness at the Johns Hopkins Outpatient Center, who was then transported by a Lifeline ambulance team to the biocontainment unit to deliver a baby.

On Thursday, Dec. 7, the emergency departments organized a separate exercise during which dozens of patients were rushed to the hospital after a mass shooting in downtown Baltimore. Along with teams from Johns Hopkins, local high school students also participated by portraying the mock patients.

Both drills involved departments throughout the hospital.
