For over a decade the Disaster Management for Long Term Care Facilities Workshops have been offered in Oklahoma to ensure that long-term care and assisted living facilities have the tools to create disaster plans that can be implemented, monitored, and evaluated, and to expose the attendees to emergency and public health agencies throughout the state. The first part of this workshop will provide an overview of the historic storms and flooding of the Spring of 2019 in Oklahoma and the lessons learned about evacuation and sheltering in place. The second part, using emergency preparedness experts, will be a three -part session providing long-term care and assisted living facilities with the tools they need to review their emergency plans, including a Gap Analysis and Corrective Action Plan, using the 2019 events as the basis for the after-action review.
Who Should Attend: Administrators, Directors, Facility Managers and all staff responsible for the protection of senior citizens in nursing homes, assisted living and other elder care residential facilities. Discounts are provided for teams of three or more people.
As a result of this workshop participants will be able to…
Understand through the focus on the Spring 2019 Storms and Floods the planning, development, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of emergency and disaster preparedness programs;
Understand how to evaluate a plan and conduct a Gap Analysis and Corrective Action Plan after an actual event;
Show through the use of multiple subject matter experts at the workshop the importance linkages to outside emergency agencies;
Acquire understanding and application of best practices related to emergency preparedness of long-term care and assisted living facilities.
8:30 Welcome and Opening Remarks
8:45 Spring 2019 Storms & Flooding Events in Eastern Oklahoma - William Smiley
Presented by the Emergency Manager for the Tulsa District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, this session will provide a necessary overview of the broad historic impact of the Spring 2019 storms on stakeholders in Oklahoma communities, including on facilities such as their own.
10:00 Experiences & Lessons Learned from Spring 2019 Storms & Flooding Events in Eastern Oklahoma - William Whited
Presented and facilitated by the State Long Term Care Ombudsman, this session will draw on his experience and that of state and regional officials who monitored and assisted long term care and assisted living facilities during these storms, as well as two facilities that faced the decision to evacuate or shelter in place. These experiences will be then used to highlight best practices and lessons learned during the 2019 events.
12:45 Do We Stay or Do We Go? Reviewing and Updating Your Emergency Plans Part 1 - William Smiley & David Grizzle, City of Norman Emergency Management Coordinator
This first of a three-part session will go over the basic steps in reviewing a plan and conducting a Gap Analysis after a major event like the 2019 storms and flood; what steps should be taken in a Gap Analysis; and how a Corrective Action Plan should be developed.
2:00 Do We Stay or Do We Go? Reviewing and Updating Your Emergency Plans Part 2
This second of a three-part session will build on the morning session, using examples from the 2019 storms and flood to assist facilities with the Gap Analysis of the plans, particularly addressing those who experienced the wind and flood events. Those who did not have direct experience with the disaster will be encouraged to assist those who did with their Gap Analysis and to extrapolate how similar scenarios might have affected their facilities. In addition to the two facilitators, subject matter experts from emergency management, public health, and related fields will be in the room to assist participants during this review.
3:00 Do We Stay or Do We Go? Reviewing and Updating Your Emergency Plans Part 3
This third of a three-part session will complete the plan review and provide an opportunity to share the Corrective Action Plans that have been developed and the lessons learned during the session process.
