The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Emergency Preparedness Final Rule requires dialysis facilities to participate in two preparedness exercises each year. The first must be a full-scale exercise, while the second can be a tabletop exercise. A tabletop exercise is a group discussion led by a facilitator, using a narrated, clinically-relevant emergency scenario, to challenge an emergency plan.
These FEMA tabletop exercise documents will assist dialysis facilities with completing a facility-based tabletop exercise to satisfy the exercise requirement that is part of the CMS Emergency Preparedness Final Rule.
FEMA’s Preparedness in a Pandemic Exercise Starter Kit helps whole community partners by providing sample documents state, local, tribal and territorial governments can use to conduct their own workshops on preparedness in a pandemic.View Resource
