COVID-19 Health Administration Preparation for Pandemic
1. Consider the current COVID-19 pandemic we are in. As a health care
administrator, working in a skilled nursing facility, you are responsible for disaster
planning for your facility inclusive of operations, staff and patients. You will need
to write up a 3-page disaster plan. This disaster plan will consider; planning and
organizing around staffing, quality issues, safety, communication, and
a. Include in your disaster plan a literature review at the beginning of your
document or provide background about COVID-19. This is the “why” of
your next step.
b. Include the process your disaster plan should take. i.e. Decision-making
(centralized in a situation like this?), creating committees, roles and tasks,
Board involvement, etc.
c. Consider the flow of your plan. Do the steps you’ve designed make sense
in terms of continuity and connectedness. You may include a flow chart or
PDCA cycle here. You can refer to Donabedian’s
Structure/Process/Outcome model here.
d. What type of messaging is required? Keeping staff and patients updated.
How will you deliver your messages?
e. What sources of information would you use to create your messaging
(Must be credible sources)?
f. Utilize PDCA to evaluate your disaster plan.
