Emergencies Can Strike anywhere and at any time. An emergency code is a notification of an event that requires immediate action. Emergency codes are color coded indicators used in health care facilities to alert all staff members of potential issues arising in a facility. These codes include unique prescribing criteria for how staff members should respond to a particular situation, ranging from an active shooter incident to cardiac arrest.
