Enhancing departmental preparedness for COVID-19 using rapid-cycle in-situ simulation.

Dharamsi A, Hayman K, Yi S, et al. J Hosp Infect. 2020;105(4):604-607.

This article describes the use of a rapid-cycle in-situ simulation (ISS) program to facilitate identification and resolution of organizational and systems-level safety threats (i.e., latent safety threats) involving a possible COVID-19 case. Identified threats fell in four domains: personnel, personal protective equipment, supply/environment, and communication. Most participants felt better prepared to provide care after the ISS training.
