This 4-hour course covers the design, development, conduct, and
evaluation of hospital exercises, with instruction on how to
coordinate regulatory, accreditation and grant exercise
The course utilizes the concepts and tools from the Homeland
Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) and incorporates
accreditation requirements (such as The Joint Commission) while
focusing on the flexibility of exercise design and modification
of available tools to meet specific hospital needs, and
facilitating participation in an exercise that coordinates with
local, state, and federal partners.
This course was developed under the CHA Hospital Preparedness
Program for hospital staff responsible for exercise development,
conduct, evaluation, and after action reporting.

This tool was was developed by the CHA Hospital
Preparedness Program to assist hospitals in development,
implementation and evaluation of their exercises.
Individual exercises are part of an Exercise and Evaluation Cycle
under the hospital’s Emergency Management Program. These
exercises may be isolated within the hospital, or part of a
larger community, or even statewide, exercise such as the
California Statewide Medical Health Exercise. It is the
intent of the checklist to provide an overview, guidance and
resources for hospitals which allows a more coordinated effort
and can be tailored to the facility.
