20 Planning for Emergencies EM.0.0.0: Planning Activities EP 8: Keeps inventories of critical assets & resources PPE Water Fuel Medical & surgical supplies Medications

21 Developing a Response EM

22 Developing Emergency Response EM : Emergency Operations Plan (The EOP ) EP : Involves leadership in development; including medical staff EP 2: Written EOP Plan includes response procedures for curtaining services, obtaining resources, closing & evacuation

23 Plans to Respond to the Emergencies Emergency Response Plans & Procedures Emergency Contagious victim Contaminate d victim Influx Lockdown Staff shortage Supply shortage Surge Utility failure Snow Bomb Generator Workplace Violence Pandemic Mass Casualty Infant Abduction Security Incident Severe weather/ Ice/snow Storms Internal Hazamat spill Contaminate Victim Contagious Victim Terrorism Utility Failure Generator Failure Workplace Violence Epidemic/Pandemic Infant abduction Mass Casualty Patient Surge Patient Influx Structural Failure

24 Developing Emergency Response EM : Emergency Operations Plan (The EOP ) EP 3: Identifies capabilities for response when the hospital cannot be supported by local community for at least 96 hours

25 Resource Utilization Inventory (in-house & storage) Average Daily Census (previous year) Consumption Rate (daily average based on pervious year) Sustainability (hourly utilization needed) Gap Analysis (difference actual & need) Consumption Adjustment (modify usage)

26 Resource Utilization: Planning Inventory = 200 N95 respirators Average Daily Census = 250 occupied beds (300 bed facility) Consumption Rate = 20 respirators/hour Sustainability = 60 hours Gap Analysis = 36 hours

27 Transportation Disruption Inventory = 200 N95 respirators Current Census = 250 occupied beds (300 bed facility) Consumption Rate = 20 respirators/hour Sustainability = 60 hours Gap Analysis = 36 hours Consumption Adjustment th hour) = 8 respirators/hr

28 Transportation Disruption Consumption Adjustment in respirators th hour = 8 respirators/hr) Actions to take: Wear for more than one patient Provide only to staff at risk Any ideas?

29 Developing Emergency Response EM : Emergency Operations Plan (cont.) EP 4: Defines recovery for each emergency in HVA EP 5: Identifies initiating & terminating activities; activating phases EP 6: Authority for activating response & recovery

30 I Initiation Process Incident Community Data AOD Hospital Data Stand-by Alert Initiation No Alert Normal Initiate Emergency Operations Plan Activate Emergency Response Plans Severe Weather Plan Utilities Plan Mass Causality Plan Contaminated Victim Plan Civil Disturbance Plan Chemical Spill Plan Activate Departmental ERPs Engineering Environmental Services Security Emergency Room Human Resources Nursing Services

31 Developing Emergency Response EM : Emergency Operations Plan (cont.) EP 7: Identifies alternate care sites that meet patients needs EP 8: Implements response plans for care, treatment, & services

44 Six Critical Functions EM : Patient Management (cont.) Personal hygiene & sanitation needs of patients Mental health services Mortuary services Patient clinical information documentation & tracking

45 Evaluation of Planning Activities EM

46 Evaluation EM : Annual Review* Hazards Vulnerability Analysis (HVA) Objectives & scope of EOP Inventory & monitoring process *Document process and include changes in any revised EOP

47 Evaluation EM : Testing & Exercise Test the plan twice a year, actual or planned: One community-wide One with actual or simulated patients One has to escalate to non-support of community Exercise must be one of the HVA hazards Monitor(s) sole responsibility as evaluator Business occupancy - annually

48 Evaluation EM : Testing & Exercise Organization monitors at least the Six Critical Functions: Communication internal & external Resources mobilization & allocation Safety & security Staff roles & responsibility Utility systems Patient clinical & support activities

49 Critique of Critical Functions Critical Functions Good Fair Communication Resource Mobilization & Allocation Safety & Security Roles & Responsibilities Utility Systems Patient Management Opportunities for Improvement Comments Monitor(s)

50 Best Practices (Pandemic) Participate in HICS Assess available resources & assets Monitor consumption rate of resources Identify risks to employees Staff training on precautions & PPE Recognize impact on staff s family

51 Goals Revisited Discuss New EM Chapter Much enlarged & still growing Identify Planning Activities HVA & EOP are the key Develop a Response Process Integrate HICS into everyday operations Evaluate Response Activities Everyone should be involved

52 Emergency Management is Everyone s Responsibility!
