To accommodate situations that result in a surge of patients that exceeds the capacity of existing resources, the New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH) and its partners have developed the New Mexico Modular Emergency Medical System (NM MEMS). NM MEMS is the medical or patient surge response construct for local, regional, statewide and interstate emergency planning recommended by NMDOH. This NM MEMS Framework presents what the Department of Health and its system partners view to be the plan development model for medical response during an emergency or incident, one which creates overwhelming patient surge that existing and available resources and routine delivery systems are unable or inadequate to accommodate.
This tool gives step by step, detailed explanations and descriptions for response to an emergency situation.
