Event description

Description

This is a 6-hour course that provides a working foundation of the NHICS concept. This class was developed to provide planning and response guidance to nursing homes and other long-term care facilities. It describes the nursing home incident command system, which can be used by facilities regardless of size or resident care capabilities, and is intended to assist with emergency planning and response efforts for all hazards.

The focus of the course is on organizing the nursing home team, implementing command and control measures, and decision making. The course is delivered to meet requirements from The Joint Commission. Training objectives include:

1) Reveal an increased awareness of the impact that the Incident Command System has on healthcare facilities

2) Describe the relationship of ICS, NIMS, and NHICS

3) Understand the need for nursing home planning and the use of a standardized incident management system

4) Understand the NHICS model and it’s integration into the current hospital organization

5) Prepare individual staff members for emergencies
