One-day Training Programme on Causes and Prevention of Hospital Fires @

Event Description

Fire in a hospital can be devastating for the patients, their relatives and the morale of the hospital. Even if there is no death in a fire accident, it leaves a deep scar on the image of the hospitals, apart from the financial damage it causes. According to reports in news media, there is one and only one root cause of all hospital fires: Short Circuit! However, it is not true in most of the cases! The over-simplification and wrong understanding, which are manifestations of incomplete knowledge on the mechanisms of initiation and spread of fire, often unjustly implicate persons and equipment for the lapses and direct the investigations in an entirely wrong direction. The fire departments, hospital administrations, state health authorities, insurance companies, doctors, nurses, attendants, machine operators, hospital architects, equipment purchase department and equipment suppliers need to understand why a hospital is particularly vulnerable to fires. With proper knowledge, awareness and appropriate system practices, hospitals can undertake required modifications of their system configuration and practices, including training of their personnel to prevent such fires.
