BHI: Disaster Preparedness Training - Session #1 - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
I'd like to know who the mystery guest is
that we lost about 1/3 of our staff due to underlying health conditions or tending to children at home and no access to school or childcare
Working with external agencies (specifically with hospitals, testing sites, or urgent care type facilities) and the lack of flowing information.
It was frustrating that DOH did not have an action plan for programs to follow. We asked for guidance and technical assistance in February and did not receive anything until June/July and it was not overly applicable to BH/SUD programs (more nursing home related).
The national pandemic preparedness plan, state, regional, county plans did not kick in. We had spent many years preparing those plans but it did not play out like that.

bomb threats no on my radar
We have a code green for that.
We have plans and procedures for each element; however, based on our most recent experience with the pandemic, we will be revisiting them to enhance them
We do not have a IT or utility failure code. It would help us though.
I'm not sure utility failure is in our current plan but we have everything else
While we have many of the elements noted, a thorough review of each element is in order to ensure we have considered all facets and actions still needed
We don't have a MHAD document that I am aware of.
Client preparedness needs work
more upfront client preparedness
we need all of these elements more formalized
10 is fine and no thumbs down on my icon
there is no thumbs down
there wasn't a thumbs down - so I picked "clap"
I only see two reactions - but I’d be open to shorter to finish sooner
Will these slides be available to us?
Yes we'll be sending out these slides -- we'll be uploading a recording as well, though that might not be available right away
Did you send us worksheets?
I will look. Thank you.
We do have a written essential staffing plan that guides us how to staff during holidays.
WATrac was designed to track hospital status?
I think it was a place to show bed space
It's been quite a while since I worked with hospitals. This is what happened post 9/11 and was to act as surveillance for bio terrorism events
Would anyone be able to share their local facility emergency code for violent patient or disturbance? Please.
We are good with Zoom
Yes. How to respond.
next week is better for us
Thank you for today!
