  • Radiation principles (e.g., exposure vs contamination) Animations, illustrations, and photos teach important radiological and clinical concepts Patient management algorithms Initial onsite activities Decontamination procedures Assess internal contamination Countermeasures
  • The last objective we listed was Development of Health IT tools for disaster preparedness and response. No time to go into detail, but just want to mention that NLM has worked with a local hospital preparedness partnership to prototype a variety of tools to aid in response to a mass casualty event. Shown here is a tool to Aid in reunification of loved ones with family members brought to hospital during mass casualty event. Tablet or iphone App connects immediately to website. Easy visualization for those “lost” or those “found” and their status. March 2012. ***National Library of Medicine Assists in Relocation of Patients*** When St. Francis Beech Grove Hospital closed its doors and relocated patients, they turned to the National Library of Medicine(NLM) tool "Reunite" http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/reunite/id368052994?mt=8 . ReUnite is the app that is used for uploading missing and found person information for family reunification. The hospital, with assistance from NLM, modified Reunite to track patients during the move. http://www.meshcoalition.org/news/66#.T2tH_B-jDmQ.twitter -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- MESH Staff Supporting Franciscan St. Francis Health with the Closure/Relocation of St. Francis Beech Grove Hospital March 14, 2012 by: MESH -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- BEECH GROVE, Ind. -- Staff from MESH were onsite this week at St. Francis Beech Grove to help with the coordination and relocation of patients as the hospital prepares to close its doors. in support of the move, MESH elevated the Marion County Medical Multi-Agency Coordination Center (MedMACC) to Level IV Activation Status. The hospital will officially close Friday at 7am, after being in operation since 1914. During the move, MESH beta-tested a new version of ReUnite, a tracking tool developed by the National Library of Medicine. iPhones with the beta version of ReUnite were utilized to check patients out of the Beech Grove Hospital and check patients into the Indianapolis Campus. ReUnite allowed personnel inside the Beech Grove and Indianapolis command centers to actively track every patient that was transferred. MESH Senior Preparedness Advisor, Andrew Roszak, lead the coordination efforts on behalf of MESH. Regarding the move, Roszak stated, "It's not every day you close a hospital and move all of the patients. This is a great opportunity to test our existing procedures, processes and technology in a real-wold situation." More information.... http://www.facebook.com/MESHCoalition?ref=tn_tnmn
  • Several additional tools aid in patient tracking – from location in the hospital (or outside) via RTLS to digital pens to capture triage data and summarize across all patients “ On Friday, March 30th, at 11:00 a.m. EDT, Secretary Sebelius presented awards for the "best innovations" submitted in Round 4 of the HHS innovates contest in a ceremony at HHS headquarters.    Secretary Sebelius will recognize the following six winning innovations and announce her three choices for the top awards:   #1 WINNER: Electronic Patient Tracking in Disasters Bridging the CHASM of Health Disparities Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse Million Hearts™ Initiative Leveraging the Public to Catch Fugitives Connecting Kids with Dental Care” [up to 3 Secretary’s Top Picks and 3 honorable mentions] “ Executive Summary of the Innovation: The BHEPP Patient Tracking and Locating system is an innovation that can significantly advance the ability of hospitals to identify and handle high volumes of incoming patients during disasters. This innovation overcomes the traditional challenges that hospitals face during disasters, where very large surges of incoming disaster victims place a major burden on the limited resources that a hospital has at its disposal. Through the novel use of technology, this solution empowers emergency management staff in hospitals with real-time information on incoming patient counts, patient severity status and patient location – assuring that key decision makers have the information necessary to make timely decisions that are critical to emergency patient care.   This solution was developed to be an exportable model that can be used by individual hospitals or groups of partner hospitals for handling disasters. It uses technology components that are extensible, interoperable and scalable for adoption in virtually any hospital setting. The solution has been successfully demonstrated during three disaster exercise drills and has demonstrated significant benefits over the traditional approaches hospitals use to handle disasters.”
  • What can libraries offer? Information services Document delivery Training for responders on quality info sources Channel for community preparedness outreach Representation on disaster planning committees Building(s), meeting rooms, bathrooms Internet access, lots of computers Key role in recovery by contributing to community stability and resilience [Sept is preparedness month Library/community/fire/ambulance preparedness fairs, held at the library. paper on this at this meeting.] What can responders offer? Implement the Stafford Act to reactivate libraries Include in community disaster planning Ensure library buildings are adequately equipped to meet their designated role in a disaster Assign high priority for reconnecting to utilities and Internet Train librarians and the general public on preparedness and other disaster topics Collaborate with libraries on community preparedness outreach
  • Old, 1998: “Libraries (other than school libraries), museums, zoos, community centers, senior citizen centers, rehabilitation facilities, shelter workshops, etc. are not considered essential community services/facilities. Because the disruption or discontinuance of these services would not result in a threat to lives, property or public health and safety, these facilities are not eligible for relocation assistance under Section 403 of the Stafford Act.” http://www.fema.gov/government/grant/pa/policy_archive/9523_3_7_1998.shtm New, 2010, Provision of Temporary Relocation Facilities: “ Eligible public facilities include facilities for police, fire protection/emergency services, medical care, education, libraries, utilities and other essential community services. State or local government administrative and support facilities essential to the operation of such facilities are also eligible.” “ Section 403 of the Stafford Act authorizes FEMA to provide Federal assistance to meet immediate threats to life and property resulting from a major disaster. Specifically, Section 403 (a)(3)(D) allows for the provision of temporary facilities for schools and other essential community services, when it is related to saving lives and protecting and preserving property or public health and safety.“ http://www.fema.gov/government/grant/pa/9523_3.shtm
  • Invite to participate – learn more about resources, framework, info needs, etc. Goal is to build awareness and interest, which leads to learning the basics, which leads to confidence in this subject matter.
