Code 90

Wow. Have never seen all 3 M-1's on the hospital roof at the same time before. Suspected something was up when I saw the choppers just flying in an out, all at about 4pm.

And then I found out from a friend I had dinner with. There was a code 90 today. In my 3 years here, I didn't even know there was a code 90. Never heard one before. It's always been Code Red, Code Pink or Code 45 (blue). Means disaster or multiple trauma victims. As it turns out, motor-vehicle accident. Read it in the news today. 2 fatalities, another 2 critically injured. All flown in.

Just started pondering this after I read the entry in Gina's blog.

I hope things turn out well for the remaining victims, and their families.

Code 45 as for my case? Coz only one dead?

Code Red is something drastic right? Watch "A few good men" starring TOm Cruise which mentione Code Red.

no. moset hospitals use code red for fire.
my medschool hospital had:
Red for Fire
Black for bomb threat
Gold for infant abduction
Blue for cardiac arrest

Here we use 45 coz we don't wanna alarm the patients/visitors. but then it's kinda obvious what code 45 means when the alarms go off and everyone's running.
