North Dakota Medical Facility Table Top and Full Scale Exercises - 2019

Listed below are links to table-top and full-scale exercises for 2019.  For each exercise listed there is a brief overview, including exercise prerequisites and objectives.  A point of contact and/or an associated registration link is provided.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has put forth requirements for hospitals and long term care facilities that include completion of one table-top exercise (TTX) and one full-scale exercise (FSE) annually. To receive the proper credit for these exercises the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requires participation, not observation in the exercises being held. Please note, not all listed exercises may be compliant with CMS requirements. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the participating facility to ensure exercise is approved and CMS compliant.

The North Dakota Long Term Care Association hosts a table-top exercise that is held during their annual spring and fall conferences.  This link is provided to access the Long Term Care Conference registration page. 

Questions about exercises may be directed to Lindsey Heupel, Education/Training Coordinator for the Emergency Preparedness and Response Section of the North Dakota Department of Health, at 701-328-2270 or
