As of today, 1/19/2021, Mammoth Hospital’s status for admitting patients to the hospital is GREEN*
*Mammoth Hospital’s Hospital Incident Management Team (HIMT) has adopted the California Crisis Care Continuum Guidelines accessible via the following link here as well as the Crisis Care Guidelines Pre-Implementation Checklist located here.
This includes the utilization of the stages of the crisis care continuum indicated in the guidelines and in California Department Public Health All Facilities Letter 20-91, and shown below:
Mammoth Hospital’s HIMT utilizes the crisis care continuum classifications (green/yellow/red) as both a communications and planning tool. The classifications allow us to communicate our status to our local Unified Command Emergency Operations Center, and in turn, the public. In addition, the HIMT reviews current space, staffing, supplies, and level of care on a continual basis, at minimum once a week during HIMT meetings to ensure all members of the HIMT are aware of the hospital’s current crisis care continuum stage.
Dr. Howell, incoming Chief of Staff and member of the coronavirus response team at Mammoth Hospital, discusses why he will be getting the COVID-19 vaccine.
