Disaster and Compassion Fatigue 01/27/2022

With the COVID-19 global pandemic entering its third year, coupled with several other major natural disasters (fires, floods, hurricanes, earthquakes), seasoned disaster responders and planners are feeling emotional fatigue. There are many terms to describe the response, but they are often referred to as disaster and compassion fatigue and both lead to burnout. Disaster and compassion fatigue manifest themselves as a general feeling of being out of control and in a myriad of other behavioral and emotional symptoms....

Patient Surge – Non-Hospital Providers 05/26/2020

Non-hospital healthcare providers such as long term care, skilled nursing, dialysis centers, home health agencies, and clinics, play an integral role in the management of patient surge during or immediately following a disaster. Some may receive patients directly while others as transfers or referrals from hospitals as they decompress. Advance all-hazard planning and recognition of the role of these facilities is necessary to ensure their continued operations. [ 256 more words ]

Patient Surge – Alternate Care Sites 05/19/2020

Alternate care sites (ACS) are the last resort in addressing patient surge and are created to address a severe shortage of beds in a geographical region when Other solutions to address the surge have not worked The patient surge is extraordinarily large or protracted The hospital infrastructure is damaged or unusable ACS provide a temporary site for inpatient and outpatient assessment, care, and recovery.

Patient Surge – Hospital Solutions 05/12/2020

The response of hospitals to medical surge takes many forms. Typically, hospitals address any increased demand by implementing rapid triage solutions for rapid assessments, staff unused licensed beds, open unused patient treatment areas, or create additional capacity using one or more of the following strategies. Activate surge plans and establish command centers Delay or cancel elective surgeries Streamline hospital processes… [ 219 more words ]

Patient Surge – Regulatory Solutions 05/05/2020

Healthcare service providers are bound by a myriad of local, state, and federal statutes and regulations that control what healthcare providers can and can not do during an emergency and describes processes that must be in place for the care and safety of patients under their care.

Patient Surge – EMS Solutions 04/28/2020

The value of Emergency Medical Service (EMS) is often underestimated during a disaster as hospitals and other facilities struggle to address a high surge of patients. On the contrary, however, EMS is well-suited for response and recovery roles within the community and other services that help to defuse the impact of the patient surge in the community. The greatest value EMS provides occurs when it is integrated into the healthcare system and asked to use the specialized and highly trained skills in leadership, education, and community response.

The San Bernardino County Public Health Officer and the Board of Supervisors today declared a local health emergency to help ensure county government and the public are prepared for the possibility that COVID-19 will appear within the county.

No local cases have been reported in the county, although cases have been identified in neighboring Riverside, Los Angeles and Orange counties.

“The purpose of this declaration is not to alarm people but to increase the focus on preparedness for both the public and county government departments and agencies,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman. “The health risk to the general public in San Bernardino County remains low at this time.” http://wp.sbcounty.gov/cao/countywire/ http://wp.sbcounty.gov/dph/coronavirus/

Earthquake – Healthcare Facility Evacuation 03/10/2020

Nobody in healthcare wants to hear the dreaded "E" word. As administrators, practitioners, and planners we are taught to avoid evacuation at all costs up until we have no other choice. At that point, however, the care and safety of the patient takes precedence and evacuation commences. Following the Northridge earthquake, eight of the 91 general acute care hospitals (9 percent) suffered structural damage or were unusable. [ 404 more words ]

Earthquake – Medical Surge 03/03/2020

Conditions leading to a surge of patients often occurs following a major mass casualty incident or disaster. In response, the healthcare system must rapidly expand to meet the increased demand for personnel and medical care. This represents a significant challenge to healthcare providers as the normal levels of service and patient loads must be maintained in addition to the levels that must be expanded due to the surge.

Earthquake – Seismic Compliance 02/25/2020

The Sylmar earthquake of 1971 was responsible for the unreinforced walls of the nearby hospital to collapse killing 44 people. Similar construction existed in other facilities leading to the passing of the Alfred E. Alquist Hospital Seismic Safety Act in 1973. A later study found that 83% of the state’s hospitals beds were still in noncompliant facilities. The Northridge earthquake, that followed in 1994, [ 228 more words ]

Earthquakes – Healthcare Surge, Surge Capacity and Medical Surge 02/11/2020

The number of patients seeking medical attention following a catastrophic earthquake or other major disaster could easily exceed the capacity of the local and surrounding hospitals and overwhelm local resources. Planning for these events is not a one size fits all and each disaster must be evaluated considering a number of variables to determine the best solutions for response and mitigation.

Patient Care in Disasters 02/04/2020

Austere care or crisis standards of care describe the shift in the standards of care that occur following a catastrophic medical event in which the infrastructure and resources are severely damaged or unavailable. Crisis standards of care does not imply that care is substandard but rather that it is contingent upon the limitations that occur because of the lack of resources such as providers, equipment, and supplies to handle a marked increase in the number of injured or ill.

Earthquake – Planning Considerations 01/22/2020

The earthquake that occurred in the San Fernando Valley city of Northridge on January 17, 1994 was a wake up call. It occurred on an unidentified fault at 4:31 am and was a magnitude-6.7. Damage to the infrastructure and other buildings was in the billions. It set into motion a cascade of efforts to prepare for and mitigate the effects of a much larger earthquake along the San Andres fault that continue into today. [ 288 more words ]

Northridge Earthquake 01/18/2020

Today is the twenty-sixth (26) anniversary of the Northridge earthquake. It occurred at 4:31 am just before dawn on a normal Monday in the San Fernando Valley north of Los Angeles. The earthquake measured a magnitude-6.7 and was felt as far away as Las Vegas and San Diego. I arrived in Northridge just before midnight and was surprised with the number of people that were still up and even more surprised at the number of people camped alongside the road of just about every street we traveled on.

Risk Perception in Disaster Preparedness 01/07/2020

On a back-country off-road trip in the mountains surrounding Death Valley many years ago, I was reminded of the power that perception has in shaping my reality. While descending a steep section of the road, I caught a patch of ice and began to swerve uncontrollably coming precariously close to the edge. My passenger and off-road mentor was calmly telling me to take my foot off the brakes and use the engine to slow my descent instead. [ 383 more words ]

Disaster Healthcare Volunteers (DHV) 01/02/2020

Following many disasters, a common issue is the number of volunteers that show up to help. In health care, this presents a significant problem if authorities are unable to verify their licenses and certifications. Following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in New York, for example, tens of thousands of people traveled to ground zero to volunteer and provide medical assistance but were turned away because there was no process in place to verify credentials.
