Disaster and Mass Casualty Incident Planning Guide for Healthcare Professionals

Price: $19.95 
Item # V7295  

Release Date: August 17, 2017

Expiration Date: August 17, 2020

Introducing the concept of creating a healthcare facilities disaster-planning guide initially may raise eyebrows, because society assumes that every facility is already prepared for anything. Both state and federal agencies have pushed, nudged, and offered resources to facilities to “get prepared,” yet the reality is that most facilities have only a basic emergency preparedness plan, preparing for a specific type of regional disaster based on their best guess of which event will occur. Although it is true that the facility cannot fully prepare for everything, these basic plans are “off-the-shelf” plans designed to be implemented in response to predefined specific events and lack the needed flexibility to be readily adapted to unexpected disasters.

This intermediate-level course is intended for healthcare professionals, emergency management, and administrators. The information in this course outlines the initial plans to address a multitude of possible variations of disaster. After completing this course, healthcare professionals will have the basic information they need to develop an effective plan for a potential disaster or mass casualty incident. The plan will reflect the facility’s ability to adapt to critical environmental and organizational needs and risks.
