Code Orange

A Code Orange is used to respond safely and effectively to a disaster external to the hospital that is likely to increase the capacity and use of hospital resources. At QHC, the Code Orange is used to manage the following three scenarios:

  • Mass casualty incidents external to the hospital
  • Chemical (C), Biological (B), Radio-Nuclear (RN), Explosive (E), or Environmental (E) events due to natural, accidental or intentional acts
  • Pandemics
