The best defence in an emergency situation is well trained people. A well rehearsed and practiced evacuation drill can save lives. It was the real-time evacuation to take place in Madinah Teaching Hospital on January 25, 2018. Emergency evacuation drill conducted at MTH to prepare hospital staff and care providers for a major crisis took about an hour to complete.
This drill was conducted in the framework of the efforts made by the Hospital management and the Health & Safety Department in educating hospital staff and patients ensure readiness to deal efficiently in emergency situations.
