New Disaster Preparedness Rule
The Centers for Medicare and Medicare Services (CMS) posted its final rule in September entitled “Emergency Preparedness Requirements for Medicare and Medicaid Participating Providers and Suppliers”. The rule is set to go into effect on November 16, 2016, with health care providers and suppliers affected by this rule required to comply and implement all regulations one year after the effective date, on November 16, 2017, according to the CMS. This rule will affect 72,315 American health care providers and suppliers – from hospitals and nursing homes and other long-term care facilities to home healthcare and hospice to dialysis facilities and care homes for those with intellectual disabilities. The goal of the rule, according to the CMS, is to prevent severe breakdown in patient care that has followed past disasters, including Hurricane Katrina and Super Storm Sandy, and most recently the flooding in Louisiana. The rule is also designed to strengthen the ability to provide services during other types of emergencies, such as pandemics and terrorist attacks. The rule is unusual in that it has provisions for 17 different provider types, among them those that patients rely on to live at home, like outpatient surgery sites, physical therapy offices and home health care agencies. The rule “will make it more likely that facilities will be able to stay open and able to care for patients, and if they need to close or stop work temporarily, get back up and able to care for patients quickly,” said Dr. Nicole Lurie, the assistant secretary for preparedness and response at the Department of Health and Human Services. ”The need for patient care doesn’t stop because streets are flooded or trees are down. In fact disasters often increase the need for health care services.” Although the majority of organizations have had to adhere to at least some emergency preparedness requirements for accreditation, others were not subject to any, including hundreds of residential psychiatric facilities, nearly 200 community mental health centers, dozens of organ procurement organizations and nearly 4,000 outpatient hospices, which treat patients with limited life expectancies. “It’s going to have a big impact on these facilities,” said Emily Lord, the executive director of Healthcare Ready, a nonprofit focused on preparedness that provided feedback to the government on the implications of the rule,” in an article in the New York Times. Some feel the requirements under the new rule will be difficult for smaller facilities. Barbara B. Citarella, president of health care consulting group RBC Limited, was cited in the Times article as saying: ‘My concern is that compliance for some providers, especially home care and hospice, will be financially impossible.” The new as it relates to Medicare and Medicaid participating providers and suppliers specifically requires the following: 1. Emergency plan: Based on a risk assessment, develop an emergency plan using an all-hazards approach focusing on capacities and capabilities critical to preparedness for a full spectrum of emergencies or disasters specific to the location of a provider or supplier. 2. Policies and procedures: Develop and implement policies and procedures based on the plan and risk assessment. 3. Communication plan: Develop and maintain a communication plan that complies with both federal and state law. Patient care must be well coordinated within the facility, across health care providers, and with state and local public health departments and emergency systems. 4. Training and testing program: Develop and maintain training and testing programs, including initial and annual training, and conduct drills and exercises or participate in an actual incident that tests the plan. These standards, according to the CMS, are adjusted to reflect the characteristics of each type of provider and supplier. For example: outpatient providers and suppliers such as ambulatory surgical centers and end-stage renal disease facilities will not be required to have policies and procedures for provision of subsistence needs. Hospitals, critical access hospitals, and long-term care facilities will be required to install and maintain emergency and standby power systems based on their emergency plan. Caitlin Morgan specializes in insuring long-term care facilities, including nursing homes and assisted living facilities and home health care agencies. We can help you put together a robust insurance solution for these providers as well as assist in developing business continuity programs that include disaster planning. This is particularly critical in light of the new CMS rule that will affect Medicare and Medicaid participating providers.

Hospital First Receiver: Decontanimation Area Setup 2003
Healthcare workers and hospital employees risk occupational exposures to chemical, biological, or radiological materials when a hospital receives contaminated patients, particularly during mass casualty incidents. These hospital employees, who may be termed first receivers, work at a site remote from the location where the hazardous substance release occurred. This means that their exposures are limited to the substances transported to the hospital on victims' skin, hair, clothing, or personal effects. The location and limited source of contaminant distinguishes first receivers from other first responders (e.g., firefighters, law enforcement, and ambulance service personnel), who typically respond to the incident site. Hospital first receivers in the US are covered under OSHA's Standard on Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER). However, OSHA recognizes that first receivers have somewhat different training and personal protective equipment (PPE) needs than first responders working in the hazardous substance release zone. In December 2004, OSHA released its OSHA BEST PRACTICES for HOSPITAL-BASED FIRST RECEIVERS OF VICTIMS from Mass Casualty Incidents Involving the Release of Hazardous Substances (http://www.osha.gov/dts/osta/bestpractices/html/hospital_firstreceivers.html ). In this best practices document, OSHA provides practical information to address employee protection and training as part of emergency planning for mass casualty incidents involving hazardous substances. OSHA considers sound planning the first line of defense in all types of emergencies (including emergencies involving chemical, biological, or radiological substances). For more information on First Receivers, go to the OSHA website for Emergency Preparedness and Response http://www.osha.gov/SLTC/emergencypreparedness/responder.html#receiver . This is clipped from the 2003 DVD, Dont Be a Victim: Medical Management of Patients Contaminated with Chemical Agents, from the Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

Disaster Preparedness at University of Colorado Hospital
http://www.teletracking.com/success/testimonials.html Paige Patterson, RN Hospital Manager University of Colorado Hospital ====== Go Live The very first day, this program was worth every penny of it. All of a sudden we saw all of these brown rooms and we said, "Those are all dirty beds and how come those aren't being cleaned?" We knew that we were waiting on beds being cleaned, but the visual of Teletracking showing us all of those dirty beds at the same timeŠ We immediately regrouped with EVS to come up with a better plan to clean in the afternoon. That was our huge eye-opener. We knew that we had bad cleaning issues, but we didn't realize that we had dirty beds at one time that were unclean. Our capacity issues have been, to us, it seems extreme. I can't imagine trying to keep track of 60 people who are looking for a bed at 8 o'clock in the morning without having the automated Teletracking system and being able to know where they are exactly in the hospital. Aurora Shootings It was very chaotic at the site and there were a lot of police officers at the site in their cars waiting for ambulances to come. The police officers loaded up their cars and they brought 22 patients to our hospital via police car. And they all showed up in the ambulance bay and the staff went running out with gurneys to put their patients on there. It was very chaotic in the beginning because there were so many people in the E.D. at that time. I was called at 2 o'clock and came in at 2:30 and by that time they had a plan in place of what was needing to happen and how many critical patients needed to go to the O.R. and how many I.C.U. beds we needed to create. Teletracking helped us, enabled us, to move it on screen so that we could keep track of who the patients were and put it in a spreadsheet and send it off to the City. And that's what we used for weeks on end to keep track of these patients while they were here. The fact Teletracking allowed us to identify who the patients were was huge. Because I had the whole patient profile in there it allowed me to know what was going on with that patient and when that patient's diagnosis changed, when the care of that patient changed, we were able to track that, too. Teletracking & Epic Care delivery using both Epic and Teletracking has been improved because we're able to track those patients in the hospital easier. The preplanning that Teletracking allows us to have is critical. The staff have gotten very comfortable using both Epic and Teletracking to keep us informed of what's going on in their unit. We had some serious issues in the beginning because we didn't really know how to use both systems. And we put out the "I Need Help" Flyer and Teletracking came to our rescue big-time. We could not have done it without the Teletracking Support. Teletracking Support has been available 24/7 for us. Everyone we talk to at Teletracking when we need help has been absolutely positive and very supportive. And when they tell me that it's because I didn't click this, I clicked that, and I feel like, "Oh, I shouldn't have bothered with a call," they say, "No, that's why we're here." Reports I like the custom reporting. We've captured a lot of data related to discharge time of day, the census time of day. We were collecting data because we wanted to find out how come on certain days our O.R.s were busier than another day. So we collected the average admissions from the O.R. versus the Access and then versus Emergency Department day by day and almost hour by hour, so we could track what we were doing. Where our patients were all coming from at any time of day, and it helped the O.R. then go back and rework their schedule so not in all one day would we get 18 orthopedic admissions, they would spread them out. The OR has, they looked at our numbers and saw that we were very lean on a Wednesday and very heavy on a Thursday and very light on a Friday so then they branched it out and they said to orthopedics in particular, "you can have days Monday, Tuesday and Friday" and  so their people are coming and going as they recover from their surgeries in a timely manner.

Preparing For Disasters With Family - The importance of off grid medicine
Kelley and I had an opportunity today to take a tour of a new hospital that was just built in our small town. We were excited to take the kids when there was no emergency so that it was not a scary or startling event. That way if it were ever needed they would have less apprehension about it. We though that it was a great way to prepare them for a crisis or disaster. We got to met with the hospital staff, including nurses and surgeons, and got to talk with the local fire and rescue and police officers. We walked through the surgical area, decontamination and sterilization rooms and it was exciting for the kids and us as well to see the kids of "behind the scenes" of the hospital. Please join us on the tour and let us know of your thoughts. If you have an opportunity to go see your local EMS, your local hospitals or talk with police and other personnel, please do so. You'll make connections that you and your family may need when a disaster strikes or during a true SHTF situation.

Planning for medical disasters to ensure victims get help they need
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Those planning for medical disasters similar to what happened in the Cameo Nightclub shooting said that planning paid off. Patients were transported to several area hospitals and according to emergency medicine specialists they got the care they needed as quickly as possible. But activating that plan was no small effort. The effort started years ago in the community. It was a coordinated emergency planning system that had several levels depending on the type of disaster or emergency. The emergency room at Bethesda North Hospital was one of several in the community where the staff was notified when that there was an event that lead to multiple injuries. Two patients from the Cameo shooting were treated there , several others at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center where one emergency medicine specialist said he hadn't slept much in the last 24 hours, partly due to the busy weekend. Dr. Dustin Calhoun said, "We did have a busy weekend, really not that much busier than usual. The unusual thing about this is that the large number of patients came from one site." At that one site , the Cameo Nightclub, part of a city-wide emergency plan was activated for patient transport and emergency care. Nine of those who were the most seriously injured UC Medical Center and some were still there Monday, March 27. UCMC has a level one trauma center meaning they were always ready for serious casualties. Other patients were sent to the Christ Hospital, Mercy Health, and Bethesda North. Randy Johann works at Bethesda North where he is EMS coordinator and charged with, "Integrating the EMS and hospital system and trying to make sure that everything goes smoothly; especially in disaster situations." A "disaster net" or radio system told those at the hospitals what was happening as much as possible. Monday afternoon, March 27, five patients were still at UC from the shooting; two were in critical condition, three were stable. The others from area hospitals were all treated and released.

Local healthcare teams discuss emergency response preparedness
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Patients who survived the nightclub shooting in Orlando thanked emergency responders Tuesday. The massacre brings up the question of how prepared we would be here in the Tri-State for a similar disaster. Emergency medicine specialists at Bethesda North Hospital are part of the Tri-State team trained to respond should we have a disaster like Orlando. They say we are ready. On the worst of days, they are prepared to do what they do best. As the victims of the Orlando shootings quietly spoke out at this hospital news conference Tuesday, Randy Johann was quietly meeting with dozens members of his emergency management team here in the Tri-State. "We were talking this morning about the Orlando event and if it happened in Cincinnati, and how would it be different here?" Johann said. It would be different, he says, because since the lives lost in the Beverly Hills Supper Club fire, many members of this team have been holding disaster drills everywhere from airports to ballparks so they would know how to respond to a mass casualty, starting on scene. "The EMS commanders on the scene evaluate the number of victims on the scene and triage them according to their severity," Johann said. "What makes us unique, however, is that patients here would not all come to just this TriHealth emergency room, but they would be transported all around the region." While most Orlando victims were transported to one hospital, they would go to several hospitals here. "The worst patients are going to go to a level one trauma center, which are University Hospital and Children's Hospital. The level three hospitals are Bethesda North and UC West Chester," he said. That would allow for quick care and quick evaluation when they arrive at those hospitals. Some of the hospitals now also have mini emergency rooms inside the ambulances. Those too could make a difference in getting patients quick care and saving lives.

Emergency Preparedness Lecture Part 1
Просмотров: 210 Medical Assistant
Created in the 1950s, this animated film describes the Civil Defense Emergency Hospitals, later renamed Civil Defense Packaged Disaster Hospitals. These were 200 bed mobile hospitals based on the military's Mobile Army Surgeons Hospitals or MASH units. The CD hospitals were equipped with supplies for 30 days of operations. In June 1956, the Federal Civil Defense Authority announced a new program for distribution of civil defense emergency hospitals. The objective was to store these 200-bed hospitals at strategic points throughout the country in or near facilities which could be converted to hospital use in an emergency. The plan was designed for the safe permanent storage of a hospital in unopened orginal containers at or near the place of eventual usage where it could be unpacked and put into operation with a minimum of delay in event of an emergency. Storage sites were to be not closer than 15 miles to a Critical Target Area nor farther than 50 miles from the area to be supported. At least 15,000 square feet of acceptable space would have to be available for hospital operations. Actual storage space required for the packaged hospital was slightly over 1,800 cubic feet. The plan was to be implemented through formal agreements with the States. Each State could obtain one or several of these hospitals for storage within its borders by signing an agreement with FCDA under which the State accepted responsibility for adequate custodial, maintenance, and protective care according to established criteria. All aquisition and delivery costs were borne by the Federal Government. Subsequent costs for storage, care, and protection were borne by the State. Packaged Disaster Hospitals supported Civil Defense and provided medical facilities capable of surviving the destruction of hospitals during a nuclear exchange. In 1953 the Federal Civil Defense Agency began development of a field hospital that could be deployed nationwide. Modeled on the Army's Mobile Surgical Hospital, a 200-bed prototype known as the Civil Defense Emergency Hospital was constructed. Because the Army hospitals were equipped with equipment not necessary for civilian purposes, the Civil Defense Emergency Hospital design was refined further into a facility with durable equipment as a Packaged Disaster Hospital. Originally designed to operate for a few days, the package was expanded to operate independently for 30 days to compensate for limited mobility of the survivors and reduced transportation capabilities. From 1953 to 1957, the Federal Civil Defense Agency acquired 1800 hospitals. Although transferred to the U.S. Public Health Service in 1961, there was no loss in the program's tempo, as 750 additional facilities were purchased and deployed. Each Packaged Disaster Hospital set weighed approximately 45,000 pounds and required 7,500 cubic feet of storage space. Assembly required 120 person-hours. The hospital included 12 functioning units: pharmacy, hospital supplies/equipment, surgical supplies/equipment, IV solutions/supplies, dental supplies, X-ray, hospital records/office supplies, water supplies, electrical supplies/equipment, maintenance/housekeeping supplies. Supplies ranged from antibiotics, gurneys, and centrifuges to blankets, sheets, and surgical gloves. Narcotics and surgical scrubs were omitted from the package. The Packaged Disaster Hospital also had an ax, hammers, screwdrivers, picks, and shovels. An extensive set of reference materials published by the U.S. Public Health Service was also available, ranging from manuals describing the facility set-up to assembling and installing specialized equipment. The equipment was supported by a comprehensive training program with texts, lesson plans, lecture formats, and a 27.5 minute film. The last Packaged Disaster Hospital set was assembled in 1962. At the program's zenith, over 2500 hospitals were deployed throughout the United States. The facilities were well dispersed; even rural states such as Alabama had 53 facilities and Arkansas had 18. The concept was also adopted in Canada, where at least 24 similarly equipped packages were assembled.

Largest Hospital in Northern Israel Prepares for War
The Scenario: Faced with the threat of missile attacks, Rambam Health Care Campus, Northern Israel’s largest hospital will have to move underground. Wounded are brought by ambulance directly into the underground hospital. ​Wounded are brought by ambulance directly into the underground hospital. Photo Credit: Pioter Fliter ​ Today, June 14, 2018, an emergency drill was conducted at Rambam Health Care Campus with the scenario of a missile attack on the Haifa area, forcing the only referral hospital in the north to transfer operations to the Sammy Ofer Fortified Underground Emergency Hospital. This unique facility, the largest of its kind in the world, normally operates as the hospital's parking lot, but in wartime transforms into a 2,000-bed medical facility within 72 hours. In a wartime scenario, this facility becomes the regional hospital for all wounded in the north. As part of the drill, the hospital practiced several scenarios, some based on lessons from the Second Lebanon War, when Rambam operated under continuous fire. That experience led to construction of the underground facility, ensuring the ability to care for patients in a safe and secure environment. During this morning’s first scenario, following receipt of an early warning, the Haifa region was placed on high alert and a decision made to evacuate the hospital departments to the underground facility. For this drill, logistical preparations included activating air purifiers and compressors, power generators, and air conditioning systems embedded in the walls of the underground hospital/parking lot, and the deployment of toilets, temporary showers, and wet up the rest of the infrastructure to become patient-ready. Medical teams then practiced transferring patients (in their hospital beds) and accompanying medical equipment to designated stations underground, including the transfer of advanced life-saving equipment such as dialysis units, and surgical equipment. This cannot be simply a temporary shelter: in the event of an emergency situation, the underground hospital is expected to absorb hundreds of oncology patients, pregnant women, dialysis patients and more—all of whom require ongoing medical care while the region is under fire. The second scenario during the drill involved a situation in which missiles hit the hospital with no warning, damaging hospital departments. This exercise involved evacuating the wounded to Rambam’s Department of Emergency Medicine, which is also fortified, and will continue to function during wartime. After initial triage, the wounded were then transferred to the underground hospital for ongoing care. The third and final drill addressed absorption of patients arriving from outside of Rambam. In this scenario, patients were being transferred by ambulance to the underground hospital. Ambulances drove in via the parking lot entrance and discharged the wounded there, to minimize exposure to the outside danger. The patients were received by medical teams who then transferred them, as appropriate to the protected emergency department (via an underground elevator), or elsewhere to the respective underground hospitalization area. The drill also served as a first time test of the functionality of Rambam’s new underground Command Center from which all emergency activities were managed. The Command Center was inaugurated one month ago thanks to a generous one million dollar donation from the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews headed by Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein. The center enables essential hospital management and expert personnel who are responsible for directing the flow of patients based on injury severity, logistical needs, function of vital systems, and more. All critical information is gathered from the hospital's monitoring systems and analyzed by a proprietary emergency software system developed at Rambam. The emergency administration team can observe above ground activity with the help of hundreds of cameras installed throughout the hospital campus. Observers of the drill included Maagan David Adom officials, the Home Front Command, and the Emergency Division at the Ministry of Health, in addition to 22 international participants of Rambam’s 19th Developing and Organizing a Trauma System and Mass Casualty Management Course, which ended today. The aim of the course was to provide participants with the knowledge and training to implement a trauma management and emergency system in their home nations. videography : Offer Golan

West Valley Hospital staff take part in disaster drill
Workers at West Valley Hospital in Dallas teamed up to quickly respond to a simulated large-scale emergency during a recent disaster drill. "The only way for us to know how well our plans are put together and our ability to respond to an actual incident is to practice and be involved in drills," said Pam Cortez, RN, director of clinical operations at West Valley Hospital. On May 1, 2012, the team not only put together a triage tent outside — but also a set up a command center inside the hospital to lead the response and communication. A bus soon arrived with mock patients from the Oregon Army National Guard, simulating a wave of incoming injured patients from a mock tornado disaster near Salem. The drill also tested Salem Health's overall response with coordinating care between its hospitals in Salem and Dallas. Seriously hurt patients were sent to Salem Hospital, while those with lesser injuries were routed to West Valley Hospital. West Valley Hospital is Polk County's only hospital, and its emergency department treats around 13,000 patients every year. The hospital has two operating rooms. "We were able to cancel any further cases today and be ready and be on stand-by for surgery, if needed," said Cortez. Staff treated some of the mock patients in the triage tent — while others were sent inside the hospital for further treatment, like a soldier who claimed he got hit by a falling utility wire. "I was just a casualty and I had a head injury," said Holly Reynolds, who played the role of an injured patient "It all went pretty well. The doctors did a great job to make sure we were all okay." "What this drill did is give us an influx of patients with higher needs — needs for imaging, needs for laboratory testing, needs for acute treatment and getting them moved out of the system to be able to allow more patients to come in," said Cortez. "The team was able to come together to be ready to receive the patients, and everyone was willing to take whatever role was assigned to them from the incident command," said Cortez. "I'm very, very proud of the response of the facility," said Cortez. "Our community needs to be able to count on us to be here and be prepared, and this drill has really helped us."

Tennessee Hospitals Hold Large-Scale Disaster Drill
More than 50 hospitals across east Tennessee took part in a major disaster drill Wednesday designed to have hospital workers ready in the event of a real emergency with mass casualties. The disaster scenario was an explosion at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville with about 1,000 volunteers as casualty victims. We've had the exposure, unfortunately, with the two tornadoes. We kind of got thrust into that situation before and had drills on that but not to that magnitude, said Winston Shields, the emergency management director with Memorial Health Care System in Chattanooga. Hamilton County volunteers wore makeup to look as real as possible. Local hospitals worked together using a new electronic system to track and treat mock blast injuries, like burns and projectiles. It really made a few of them step back for a minute and take a deep breath and realize what they were doing and the profession they were in, said said Shields. Other counties discovered some bumps along the way. In McMinn County, we're lacking in morgue beds, and we don't know what would happen in a true disaster or chemical disaster, how would we handle the bodies in McMinn County, said Neal Johns, the Emergency Room department director at Athens Regional Medical Center. Emergency response officials said there should be more disaster exercises, so everyone will know h
