At the Florian Ceynowa Specialist Hospital in Wejherowo, the training “Management of a hospital in a crisis situation” was organized. They were conducted by experts from Israel. It is intended to support Polish personnel in making decisions in a situation where a sudden and one-off increase in the number of patients in a state of life and health threat will end up in the emergency department, as in the case of a terrorist attack or a communication catastrophe.

– Specialists from Israel are the best in the world and if you learn, you learn from the best – that’s how Marek Rutka, MP of the New Left and chairman of the parliamentary team for the emergency medical system and a member of the parliamentary health committee, summed up the crisis management course at the Florian Ceynowa Specialist Hospital in Wejherowo.

The training – which was scheduled for July 17 and 18 – was organized by the ELNET Foundation in cooperation with the Rambam School of Trauma & Mass Casualties and Pomeranian Hospitals and is aimed at strengthening the system of responding to potential threats in Polish hospitals. Polish experts managing hospitals could gain new skills and knowledge in the field of crisis management.

– This project is another example of practical Polish-Israeli cooperation based on common needs and values. The Israeli approach to crisis management is based primarily on preventive measures, such as preparing institutions, personnel and citizens for every possible scenario. In addition, due to living in constant danger, Israelis have developed a number of solutions proven in crisis situations, which they openly share with experts around the world – emphasizes Marta Kubica, president of the ELNET Foundation, which is responsible for the visit of Israeli doctors in Wejherowo.
