Week of April 6th, 2020 Lessons

Posted By Kristi Sanger, Friday, April 10, 2020

This is the beginning of a weekly blog to share tidbits of info that I pick up during my multitudes of webinars and calls. I hope this will help in healthcare response across the country. The best way to continue to share will be for you to add to this in your comments as well. I hope this will be a useful tool in your emergency management belt during this response. 

Tips from this week......

  • MENTAL HEALTH - this is becoming a BIG deal. HCW's are seeing and experiencing things that they have never before. Stay on top of this for your employees. If you have volunteers, be sure to include them in your mental health debriefs and programs. 
  • SHARE SUCCESSES - do this on a white board, the wall, anywhere that your staff will see. This will help with morale and mental health during this trying time. 
  • ALTERNATE CARE SITES - with the number of patients presenting at this time, tertiary sites may not be available for overflow. Get your alternate care site plan out and dust it off now.
  • TESTING - is not going away anytime soon. When we are done testing for the virus, we will move on to testing for antibodies. If you don't have processes in place for testing in your facility or partners, put these in place now. 

If you have suggestions or lessons learned to share with your peers,  please add to the comments below. We are all in this together and we will get through this!! Stay safe and wash your hands!!

1. Our hospital & PH departments are preparing closed university dorms for use as quarantine locations. People that don't want to do their 14 days at home or have compromised family members.
2. We have discovered that we have a lot of behavioral health tactics (videos, webinars, etc.) but no STRATEGY for how to roll them out, target them to the appropriate audience, etc. We are starting on a strategy for more effective use of some of these great resources.
