Tweet information on the Caduceus Shield Exercise Initiative to your followers.

The Caduceus Shield Exercise Initiative provides America’s residential care / skilled nursing facilities with a comprehensive approach to assessing various disaster and emergency planning / preparedness, response and recovery capabilities and competencies. The initiative’s exercises have been developed to assist with facility disaster and emergency planning efforts and to help facility management and employees understand how to respond to situations which they do not face in their daily work environment.

Caduceus Shield exercises are designed to provide an opportunity for a single facility or a coalition of facilities to participate in a meaningful exercise with measurable outcomes. The initiative provides an alternative to the traditional time consuming and costly approach to conducting tabletop, functional and full-scale exercises by utilizing an internet based exercise delivery system to design, conduct and evaluate exercises.

Core Facility Exercise Series

The concept behind the recurring series of core exercises is to provide facility owners and managers with an opportunity to assess an identified capability as cost-effectively as possible.
