You are a risk management professional at Great Plains Community Health Center, a rural community health center affiliated with a larger hospital in the midwestern region of the United States. Following an impressive presentation to internal hospital stakeholders on the fundamentals of emergency preparedness in healthcare, the hospital administrator has asked you to start the process of revising the draft emergency operations plan (EOP) at Great Plains Community Health Center. To begin this undertaking, she has asked you to analyze an emergency management plan from another healthcare organization to inform your revisions of the core elements of the center’s emergency operations plans.


EOP Analysis
Your supervisor has asked you to refer to the emergency operations plan from another healthcare organization when describing the components of an emergency operations plan. She has provided you with an emergency operations plan; however, she informs you that you may reference another emergency operations plan. As you identify and describe these elements, use your selected emergency operations plan to offer concrete examples. Throughout your analysis, ensure that you are appropriately citing your source. In your analysis of emergency operations plans, address the following:

  • Describe the function and importance of an emergency management plan for healthcare organizations.
  • Describe the “all-hazards” approach to emergency preparedness.
  • Identify and describes the key elements of an emergency management plan.
  • Illustrate the phases of the disaster life cycle, and connects these phases to elements of an emergency management plan.

EOP Recommendations
Following your analysis of another organization’s emergency operations plan, your supervisor has asked you to review Great Plains Community Health Center’s own EOP. In your review, analyze Great Plains Community Health Center’s EOP to ensure that it is following best practices and contains all of the necessary elements for an EOP. Use this analysis to do the following:

  • Recommend and justify the recommendation for revisions to an emergency management plan.
  • Outline a drill or training exercise that could be used for training and testing the emergency response.
