Project #122132 - Discussion 5 HC workers

Healthcare workers play a major role in disasters, so analyzing and being able to identify vulnerable population is a key component. This discussion will not only focus on the role of the healthcare worker, but it will also prepare you for incorporating vulnerable populations within a healthcare facilities emergency preparedness plan of action. For this discussion, please read the case study, Fire at Big Bear Valley, California, on pages 372-373. Please discuss the three challenges and study questions in your original post. Be sure to base your rationale with information you have learned throughout the course.

Challenges and Study Questions

  • While beds were found so patients could be relocated, they were scattered throughout the area. This raised concern over patients who may not be able to adjust to the new environment. . Other concerns included confusion about directing family to loved ones and overly taxing staff because they would be working throughout a broader area.
    Study question: How would you address this?
  • Agreements were not in place between the hospital and nursing homes.
    Study question: How would you deal with this situation and how would you remedy it in the future?
  • While annual drills were conducted, the staff was not well exercised in evacuations.
    Study question: How would you better prepare staff for future evacuations?

If you choose to include research to support your comments, which is always highly recommended, remember that wikis and blogs are not credible resources. Cite your source using APA.
