Pandemic Flu Emergency Mock Drill

Release Date: March 11, 2008

MEDIA ADVISORY

WHAT:
PANDEMIC FLU EMERGENCY MOCK DRILL

WHEN:   
Wednesday, Mar. 12, 2008
1:30–2:30 p.m. and 3:30–4:30 p.m.

WHERE:   
Mountcastle Auditorium
Pre-Clinical Teaching Building
725 North Wolfe Street
Baltimore, MD

HIGHLIGHTS:  
Second year medical students at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine will participate in a drill simulating what would occur at hospitals during a pandemic flu outbreak.  

About 300 cardboard dummies will represent flu patients, as aspiring doctors must catalog each case and order appropriate treatments. This will take place in a high-pressure environment with limited resources to simulate real-world scenarios. Eventually, the exercise will call for some of the medical staff to feign illness, forcing remaining units to continue giving care with dwindling staff support.
