COURSE DESCRIPTION: The Disaster Preparedness for Hospitals and Healthcare Organizations within the Community Infrastructure course brings together those individuals from the hospital and healthcare community who are responsible for ensuring the resiliency of healthcare services during a high consequence or catastrophic event within a jurisdiction. Through a focus on preparedness processes and activities, the course provides an opportunity to acquire the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to help them ensure the sustainability of their facilities and organizations during all types of disasters. The course introduces the various natural, technological, and civil hazards to which hospitals and healthcare organizations may be vulnerable, and the potential impacts of those hazards. Federal guidelines and legislation that serve to aid in the preparedness for and response to incidents involving these hazards are discussed, as are current emergency management standards for the hospital community. Participants review response and recovery issues that should be addressed by medical facilities and organizations in preparation for a large-scale incident, including identification of critical resources necessary for response and recovery. Essential preparedness activities and the development of a hospital emergency response plan are also discussed, along with the establishment of response strategies based on current capabilities. The course addresses critical infrastructure dependencies, identifies essential planning considerations, and promotes the concept of cooperation as described in the National Response Framework.

At the conclusion of the course, participants will be able to: - Discuss threats to hospital infrastructure preparedness. - Discuss the fundamentals of preparedness. - Discuss the development of hospital emergency plans. - Discuss preparation for the recovery phase of a large scale disaster event. - Assess the preparedness levels of their healthcare facilities/organizations using medical surge as a model.
