Emergency Codes

Emergency Codes at the Hospital

What are emergency codes?

An emergency code is a notification of an event that requires immediate action. Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre utilizes standardized colour codes as supported by the Ontario Hospital Association. Staff, physicians, and volunteers understand what each code refers to and are aware of how to respond in order to provide a safe environment.

Know the Codes

If you see something, say something! Always inform the closest hospital worker as soon as possible, as they are trained to know the appropriate response actions.
