Whilst traditional MIMMS teaches a structured approach to responding to a mass casualty at the incident site, Hospital MIMMS (HMIMMS) is aimed at hospital staff involved in the major incident team within the hospital.

This 1 day course explores the priorities and responsibilities of hospital clinical and administrative responders facing a mass casualty incident. An all-hazard approach is adopted and the concept of the scaleable hierarchy is introduced as a fundamental concept in the hospital based response.

The course comprises of lectures, workshops and a novel interactive table top exercise, to simulate the challenges facing responders during the phases of reception, definitive care and recovery.

Course objectives include:

  • Type and incidence of major incidents and the need for an effective response and management planning.
  • Understand and able to implement and follow the seven principles encapsulated in the CSCATTT approach to successfully managing a major incident.
  • Understand the need for major incident training, focusing on those aspects of the plan which do not occur in day-to-day practice, i.e., command, control, communication and mass casualty triage.
  • Able to deliver the medical support needed for major incidents in the hospital setting using the concept of collapsible hierarchies.

Suitable Participants: 

This course is aimed at both clinical and non-clinical personnel who would be involved in managing a major incident in the hospital.
