About the Toolkit
The Crisis Care Guidance Implementation Toolkit contains materials that have proven useful in planning for, implementing, and exercising crisis care capacity in Oregon communities and health systems. By working together, we can improve Oregon’s capacity to respond effectively in a public health crisis.
- This toolkit aligns with the Oregon Crisis Care Guidance.
- Content is organized by healthcare sector.
- Facilities and communities involved in this work are welcome to adapt and use the materials below.

- Introduction to Use of the Modified Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (MSOFA) (pdf) – MSOFA can be used in consideration with other objective information in making critical care resource allocation decisions for adult patients. In the Oregon Triage Model, it would only be considered as a “tie-breaker” when multiple critically ill patients are presenting for care at the same time, and patients outnumber critical care beds. It can also be used to help standardize presentation of critically ill patients during consultation between triage officers. This document is a training resource for potential triage officers and can be used in drills and exercises.
Oregon Crisis Care Guidance Triage Card (pdf) – This quick reference describes critical care inclusion and exclusion criteria, and the basis for critical care resource allocation decisions as described in the Oregon Triage Model. It can be used in triage officer training and implementation exercises, or during actual triage activities.
- Surge Capacity Tabletop Template (pdf). This tabletop exercise has been used by several hospitals and health systems to explore which surge capacity strategies would work best for their facilities, and would be good candidates for incorporation into emergency operation plans. It is offered by the health system that developed it for your use and revision, as needed.
- Triage Tabletop Template (pdf). This tabletop exercise has been used by several hospitals and health systems to explore how they would implement critical care resource allocation during a public health crisis, as outlined in the Oregon Triage Model of the Crisis Care Guidance. It is offered by the health system that developed it for your use and revision, as needed.
