ability of a given area or community to meet the demands for health care Hospital Emergency Incident Command System (HEICS) & Emergency (Disaster) Operations Plan (EOP)

serve as an important emergency . management foundation for our institute Basic Features of ICS

Common terminology Modular organization Management by objectives Reliance on an Incident Action Plan (IAP) Chain of command and unity of command Unified Command

Manageable span of control ICS Management Organization Management system not an organizational chart The ICS organization does NOT correlate to the administrative structure of the agency Normal roles may not be assumed in ICS ICS Management Functions



LOGISTICS SECTION FINANCE/ADMIN. SECTION Emergency (Disaster) Operations Plan (EOP) Intended to explain in a clear and concise

manner the critical components HICS as well as the suggested manner for using the accompanying materials. Two types of emergencies that may impact on this hospital Internal Emergencies involve only the hospital and its capabilities that may be reduced.

External Emergencies will usually be sited outside the hospital and the hospitals capabilities may remain intact. Basic components of EOP: 1)Mitigation: find ways to reduce the devastating effects of disaster BEFORE it occurs.

2)Preparedness / Planning 3)Response 4)Recovery / Debriefing 3 temporal phases of injury event Prevent Event Post event

Renal failure Cancer Psychological Lack of access or spoiled food Untreated injuries, limited antibiotics Consequence of crush syndromes Consequences of radiation exposure Reaction to life-changing events

Basic components of EOP: In the Preparedness / Planning part Activation / Notification (when + how) Facility protection (especially for terrorism disasters) Decontamination Staging area Evacuation plans Families care

Expansion of services and alternative care sites Supplies and Logistics Resources (Inventory of hospital resources) Personnel (Fan-out, methods of mobilization) Phone #, contacts, etc. Basic components of EOP: In the Preparedness / Planning part Staff education and Training Exercises

Chain of command. Coordination and Communication Media Phases of Disaster Response 1. Activation 1. Notification 2. Organization of command post 2. Implementation

1. Search and rescue 2. Triage, stabilization and transport 3. Definitive management of scene hazards and victims 3. Recovery 1. Withdrawal from scene 2. Return to normal operations 3. Debriefing
