GRMC to conduct disaster drill
Posted on 10/11/2018 6:41:00 AM.
(Seguin) -- Don't be surprised if you see a little more activity in the emergency rooms and hallways at GRMC this Thursday morning. Guadalupe Regional Medical Center (GRMC) will be conducting a disaster drill training exercise. The mock emergency is being held in conjunction with the Seguin Police Department and other area first responding agencies.

Chelsea Maldonado, GRMC director of marketing, says the goal of conducting and planning the exercise will allow GRMC to asses emergency response, coordination of staff and recovery efforts should a real crisis occur. She says in instances of a real life emergency, there would be an influx of patients, media and concerned community members.

"(It's) just completely a drill. This won't affect the hospital in anyway. We will continue operating fully as a fully functional hospital. This is just our way to have an exercise that we can then figure out -- okay, if this were to happen in real life, do we have everything that we need to make sure that we can take care of our patients? So that's the whole reason for the drill," said Maldonado.

Again, Maldonado cautions community members to expect to see emergency responders at GRMC looking and acting as if it were a true disaster.

This could include more emergency vehicles outside the building or busier hallways filled with patients pretending they need assistance. The GRMC disaster drill will be held today between 8 and 11 a.m.
