What are Emergency Codes?
An emergency code is a notification of an event that requires immediate action. At Sunnybrook the emergency codes are mostly denoted by a standardized colour, set by the Ontario Hospital Association, to allow for uniformity amongst Hospitals. This also facilitates the translation of essential information to the responding code teams to ensure optimal response.
