Patient Care Service/Unit Emergency Response Plan (ERP)

This Template and appendices are provided to assist in the development of Department/Unit Level Emergency Response Plan (ERP). An ERP is generally required for each Administrative and Patient Care work space, and should be considered part of every Department/Unit’s basic health and safety responsibility. Department/Unit Emergency Response Plans are the building blocks of the Service Business Continuity Plans (BCP), which provides the structure for the Health Care System Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP), as part of the broader Comprehensive Emergency Management Program.
