Hospital evacuation provides many challenges with maintaining the continuity of care during patient movement. Patient tracking and information management becomes difficult due to multiple hand-offs between clinicians. A hospital’s top evacuation priority is to maintain a high level of care for patients. That's why DQE created a new group of evacuation products that contain tools that organize a patient evacuation process, so evacuation is complete in a deliberate, orderly manner to help eliminate unknowns and limit liability.

The following are some of the featured products in the new hospital evacuation line:
PACE Evacuation Toolbox - PACE stands for Patient Assessment & Command Essentials. This toolbox is a flexible system that is designed to be easily integrated into your facility's existing evacuation capability. Its contents organize an evacuation response effort and include items that focus on patient preparation, incident management, and evacuation support.
Patient Evacuation Go-Pouch - The Go-Pouch maintains continuity of care by consolidating vital information and supplies into one location. This gusseted Tyvek envelope holds a medical transfer bag, patient assessment door sign, and patient mobility level wristbands. Also included is the Go-Pouch clip, which secures the Go-Pouch to the patient, so necessary items stay with the patient throughout the evacuation process.
HICS Vests - Evacuation Branch - Easily identify staff members of the Evacuation Branch with these HICS-style vests. The position names are printed on both the front and the back with a reflective strip sewn on both sides. Constructed of a non-woven, breathable synthetic material, these vests are durable enough for repeat use during evacuation training, but economical enough for disposal.
