1.    Training Curriculum

Since this is a mandatory yearly course, we could have two versions: 1-yearly mandatory and 2-for new hires to cover detail specifics.

In our Subject Matter Expert interviews, some of the concerns raised were:

  Data isn’t sticking, “…when I go to the hospitals, people can’t tell me what RACE is.”

  Need more demonstration content, “…want video of someone putting out a fire.”

  People have taken this content over and over, “…they are not reading it anymore, and most are skipping and skimming.”

  “People need to understand how the building functions without making them feel nervous”. Debbie Mays, July 24, 2014. Jennifer added, “They get RACE, PASS and evacuation but they don’t get what to do when a fire happens in their building.”

1.1.   Measureable Goals/High Level Objectives:

Learners that complete the learning will have practiced how to:

1.       Call for help

2.       Get patients to safety

3.       Put out the fire

1.2.   Delivery Method – Online through the BJC Online Learning Center using an Interactive Infographic.

1.3.   Duration - No more than 30 minutes long if users get each answer wrong and are redirected.

1.4.   Module Description

Use branching scenarios, allowing learners who answer questions correctly to advance. If a learner doesn’t get it correct, there are different types of explanations and a new question before going forward. Scenarios will be delivered through our Interactive Infographic to allow for less text on the screen and more interactivity. This level of engagement will allow our learners to incorporate a building systems approach to staying safe in a fire.

We want learners to practice what needs to be done in the real world. To do this, we will focus on:

  What do people need to do?

  Closet alarm to your work station

  Communicate and alert Security (Reference: Floor Fire Plan - Emergency Preparedness Plan)

o    Get Patients to Safety

  Understand your position in the building, how this changes your response

         Where you enter/leave your work area (i.e. clock-in area)

o    _________________________

  When are you supposed to evacuate (RACE)?

         Wait for Signal

o    for lateral move (same floor)

  move patients beyond fire/smoke barrier doors

o    for vertical move (safe floor)

  Use elevator on the smoke free side of the fire/smoke barrier doors

  Use elevator if instructed to do so by a fire fighter

         Before moving patients, check exits in advance to be sure they are safe and useable.

         Make sure someone has secured proper documentation/charting needed for patients.

  What is the order for evacuation?

         Move patients in danger first

         Order for remaining patients

o    Ambulatory

o    In wheelchairs

o    Bedfast – equipment needs to be detached

  Use Portable assist devices

         Med sled steps

  If directed to do so it is okay

         To use elevators

         To use closed fire/smoke barrier doors

  Make sure you close all doors you pass through as you evacuate

         How can you get rid of at least one the three things a fire needs?

o    Triangle – Oxygen, Fuel and Heat.

         Understand your position in the building – where is the closest fire extinguisher to you? They are 75’ apart

         How do you use a fire extinguisher (use existing interactivity from current module here) Extinguish the fire (RACE) or Evacuate (RACE)

o    Pull the pin

o    Aim at the base of the fire

o    Squeeze the handle

o    Sweep from side to side

  Stand 6-8 feet away if possible
