How successful has our planning been?
How successful has our planning been? Disaster preparedness has been a major focus since the 9/11 terrorist attack in 2001. Much planning has been done since that time. How successful has our planning been? Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and Hurricane Sandy in 2012, makes one wonder. Please read through the articles posted for insight. (You will not be tested on the articles.) You will have to use your “logon” to see the articles within our library.
You have reviewed a law applicable in your area (during week 3). Now let’s look at plans that are in-place within your facility. Your analysis of the plan that directly affects your practice is the ideal situation because you may be asked to “live the journey!” However, there have been situations that our students are employed in a setting other than a hospital (ie: clinic, home health, not employed, etc.). If this is the case, please choose one of the example plans posted on Moodle to analyze. Do not attempt to analyze hospital-wide plans!! This is too time-consuming! However, you may have to “skim” large parts of the plan to focus on an area that has a “short-coming.”
This activity is worth 8% of your total grade. You can expect individual feedback within a week of the Thursday 8pm due date/time.
Do not post before 8am Sunday of Week 5.
Post an INITIAL RESPONSE answering the following questions in a narrative discussion by 8pm Tuesday of Week 5:
1. Discuss a segment of your facility’s plan (or the example plan).( i would like to talk about code white since i work in merillville indiana and during the winter we face a harsh weather… I’m a midnight nurse i work midnight so most of the time we need to be mandated and work the day shift waiting for our relieves to show up…)
2. Do you see an area that needs improvement?
3. Discuss and offer a solution.
You are not being asked for your personal opinion. Your responses should show critical analysis of the topic and, in addition, must be supported by evidence from the scholarly literature (preferably peer-reviewed nursing journals). Your response must be typed or copied and pasted directly into the discussion thread and include citation of sources in-text and a reference list in APA format. Please double space between paragraphs but do NOT use double spacing or indentions throughout. No file can be uploaded. Use no more than 300 words.
