    Hospital Exceeds Emergency Management Goals With CPOD

    Can the Methodist Health System administer medicine to its 8,000 employees within in a certain time frame?

    Over a period of a few weeks, the entire Methodist system simulated a Closed Point of Dispensary (CPOD) exercise as part of its quarterly emergency management practices, starting with Jennie Edmundson Hospital in Council Bluffs.

    In an attempt to test Jennie Edmundson’s ability to do a mass vaccination or medication distribution, the hospital was the first to complete its CPOD between Sept. 25 and 27.
