Ontario Critical Care Moderate Surge Response Guide

 |  Guides & Toolkits

This document presents the tools and protocol for declaring a moderate surge when at least one hospital in the LHIN is unable to sustain their critical care services, and requires the resources of the LHIN to ensure patients receive safe and timely access to care. Moderate surge plan is the natural escalation from minor surge planning which involves hospitals managing surges within their own institutions. Building on the same elements and principles, this response guide outlines the frameworks and tools for hospitals to prepare for managing moderate surges.
