In stressful situations such as the management of major incidents and disasters, the ability to work in a structured way is important. Medical management groups initially are formed by personnel from different operations that are on-call when the incident or disaster occurs.
The aim of this study was to test if performance indicators for staff procedure skills in medical management groups during simulations could be used as a quality control tool for finding areas that require improvement.
A total of 44 management groups were evaluated using performance indicators in which results could be expressed numerically during simulations.
The lowest scores were given to documentation and to the introduction of new staff members. The highest score was given the utilization of technical equipment.
Staff procedure skills can be measured during simulations exercises. A logging system may lead to enhancing areas requiring improvement.
