Triage by Resource Allocation for INpatients TRAIN®

Coordinating care with a common code 
Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford, a tertiary care freestanding hospital for pregnant women, babies and children, created an innovative and novel disaster tool designed for the movement of hospitalized patients. It can rapidly assess patient transport needs for partial or vertical evacuation called TRAIN®. Whether the need is to evacuate the facility or to prepare for increased surge capacity, a triage method is required to quickly and accurately assess patients.
