NURS FPX 4060 Assessment 3 Disaster Recovery Plan NR

The DRP plan is servers as a vital tools for Vila Hospital’s system to enhance the patient care outcomes.

Considering barriers such as cultural, social, and economic allows improved formulation of a DRP (Wax, 2019).

The nurses should improve their knowledge of culture, values, norms, and gender types (Al-Hajj et al., 2020).

This disaster recovery plan aims to help the community members and staff ensure every individual’s safety by meeting the unique requirements. Culture can impact society because of a lack of trust, impacting the management’s disaster recovery efforts. This shows that the cultural toolkit must be prepared to incorporate cultural elements in society. Moreover, social justice is another vital factor in fairly and equally distributing resources in the healthcare organization. Nurses can use availability modeling to raise the education of social equality to help all patients receive equitable resources. Therefore, these social and cultural barriers impact the DRP (Wax, 2019).

Since many community members lost their lives in hurricanes and floods, the lack of knowledge of managing the disaster is crucial. More social barriers include lack of resources and nurses’ preparedness for mitigating catastrophe risks. That impacts the communication of nurses and professionals in the proper mobilization of resources. This means that the resilience level of the community must be increased with the right disaster management strategies to collectively make good decisions (Al-Hajj et al., 2020).

Nurses must improve their knowledge of cultural, social, and economic barriers that hinder formulating an effective disaster management plan. Obstacles such as coordination gap between planning agencies, different interests and goals of nurses and planners, and weak collaboration mechanisms can impact the quality of service. Moreover, some nurses also neglect patients’ complaints and find it hard to properly manage disaster recovery information.

Concepts such as social justice are vital to help professionals provide equitable distribution of resources.

The importance of strong collaboration starts with better communication system (Tang, 2018).

Professionals should also consider barriers such as lack of shared responsibility, ignoring patients details, etc.
Cultural, Social, and Economic Barriers to Plan
Culture can impact society because of a lack of trust, which also affects the management’s disaster recovery efforts. This shows that the cultural toolkit must be prepared to incorporate cultural elements in society. Moreover, social justice is another vital factor in fairly and equally distributing resources in the healthcare organization. Nurses can use availability modeling to raise the education of social equality to help all patients receive equitable resources. Therefore, these social and cultural barriers are interrelated, impacting the DRP.

One can never underestimate the importance of solid communication for improving healthcare outcomes in the middle of disasters. Strong collaboration starts with a better communication system that allows professionals and nurses to convey their feelings sincerely. Communication helps nurses to mobilize resources effectively.

This shows that the cultural toolkit must be prepared to incorporate cultural elements in society. Moreover, social justice is another vital factor in fairly and equally distributing resources in the healthcare organization. Nurses can use availability modeling to raise the education of social equality to help all patients receive equitable resources. Therefore, these social and cultural barriers are interrelated, impacting the DRP. Therefore, barriers such as the coordination gap between planning agencies, different interests and goals of nurses and planners, and weak collaboration mechanisms can impact the quality of service. Moreover, some nurses also neglect patients’ complaints and find it hard to properly manage disaster recovery information.

How the Plan will Lessen Disparities and Improve Access to Resources
This disaster recovery plan DRP comprises all the strategies for managing risks before, during, and after the incidents.

Adhering to this plan can help Vila’s nurses to avoid legal penalties and liabilities (Sasaki, 2020).

The plan can benefit error-free drug administration.

The complex environments in the healthcare industry require nurses to balance human rights and ensure equal access to facilities and resources to help out the hurt individuals during disasters. Unfortunately, several ethical issues lurk during a catastrophe, complicate the disaster recovery plans and raise conflicts. For example, the worst situation was created in Vila Hospital when the nurses had to check the patients’ temperature daily during the pandemic outbreak and could not provide proper attention to all in-house patients who also suffered from the financial crisis.

When nurses get involved in activities such as wrong medication due to poor drug administration knowledge, laws can be strict to punish them with heavy fines and even suspensions. Therefore, to avoid penalties and problems caused by drug administration errors, nurses can improve their behavior through this DRP (Sasaki, 2020).

The DRP will help to reduce the patients’ recovery time and improve their treatment quickly. It will empower nurses to avoid and prevent legal liabilities and enhance the security of patients. The plan will enhance nurses’ decision efficiency and help Vila Hospital safeguard and protect sensitive patient data via backups. Therefore, as a result, the plan will help patients have better access to community services and prevent medical or medication, or drug administration errors (Alshammari et al., 2018).

Moreover, doctors can save wrong medications from being given to the patients and save drug errors costs.

Evidence-Based Strategies for Overcoming Communication Barriers and Enhance Inter-professional Collaboration
The sought-after policies include the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act and more similar acts

The hospital can gain from the guidelines of the Disaster Management Act 2000 as well (Prakash, 2019).

These governmental policies offer a strategic and systematic approach.

The government’s policy regulations have played a crucial role in formulating this DRP. In this DRP, I would like to mention the mammoth role of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act. Moreover, the second policy is the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000. These policies have helped nursing staff understand the correct procedures to enhance funding; the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 also equips nurses and planning team members with guidelines on how to collaborate effectively during a crisis. Their coordination can mitigate disaster risks and raise their understanding of the complexity, size, and location of the disaster incidents in the future (Bogdanov et al., 2020)

Moreover, the government’s policies will also help management follow a systematic guideline that will allow them to form a scalable plan for streamlining different operations during a disaster. Here, the most important legislation is the Healthy People 2030 goals which clearly emphasize the need for communities to prepare in advance for disasters. This means that following the rules of the 2030 goals will boost a community’s disaster preparedness and allow them to respond proficiently (Kularatne et al., 2021). Furthermore, the Disaster Recovery Reform Act (DRRA) of 2018 also allowed the government to help professionals during disasters by improving their ability to mitigate disasters effectively. The better methodology provided for mitigating disaster risks is admirable.

Following these laws mentioned above and acts means that the staff of Vila Health Hospital can now use a systematic and strategic approach to improve the quality outcomes and reduce hospital re-admissions and patient complaints due to nurses’ negligence. For instance, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is another legislation worth-mentioning here that helps enhance hospitals’ outcomes through incorporating Healthy People 2030 goals into their strategies and focusing on planning to deal with calamities and emergencies. This goal will allow the hospital to increase their cancer patient nurses and doctors for better interventions and reduce costs and re-admissions.

The guidelines of Healthy People 2030 can also help nurses to do better disaster planning (Kularatne, 2021).

The purpose of DDRA Act 2018 is also to improve disaster mitigation

Healthy People 2020 and 2030 Goals
The incorporation and exploration of the Healthy People 2030 and 2020 goals and objectives is a great initiative that can help identify the needs of affected individuals and communities to prepare them for rehabilitation proceeds. The goal suggests advanced preparation for nurses and better planning mechanisms through education to reduce disease outbreaks (Kularatne, 2021).

Moreover, the guidelines provided by the Disaster Recovery Reform Act (DRRA) of 2018 helps nurses to improve their abilities to mitigate disasters and plan effectively by planning better recovery funding methods.

MAP-IT APPROACH
The five-phase model has the following components such as Mobilize, Assess, Plan, Implement, and Track.

Mobilize

Mobilizing means that involving others’ help to enhance the social or desired change in the organization (Bogdanov, 2020).

MAP-IT is a five-phase framework that starts with mobilizing. The framework aims to evaluate public health interventions and programs (Bogdanov, 2020). The hospital uses the most sought-after MAP-IT Mobilize, Assess, Plan, Implement, and Track) approach for measuring the impact of interventions.

Mobilizing is the first step that involves seeking assistance from individuals, groups, or organizations that help the hospital bring the required social change. This can happen when Vila Hospital involves government organizations and NGOs to plan specific issues related to natural disasters (Tang et al., 2018).
7

Assess
This is the next step to assess the real needs of the community after a disaster.

The assessment phase includes identifying vital resources and their allocation (Alshammari, 2018).

The first stage is to evaluate the community’s requirements. This involves determining who is impacted and what tools are accessible to assist alliance participants in working collaboratively. Technologies, communications, knowledge, volunteer groups, and information are assets. To reduce the dangers of a medical crisis, the organization will examine health information and seek professional advice (Alshammari, 2018).

The second step is assessing the needs, which includes discovering the number of people affected and the resources required for the coalition groups to work together with different technologies, expertise, knowledge levels, and skills. This will include gaining an expert opinion of these stakeholders.
8

Plan
Planning step starts after assessing that involves gathering the data and resources for a better plan (Wax, 2019).

This step also includes steps such as This includes an action plan with firm deadlines and clear objectives to help the community
The planning step is crucial because includes setting clear deadlines and targets to achieve community improvement goals. Responsibilities are assigned to nurses and coalition members to work as a team. The planning process also incorporates 2020 objectives and goals for Vila Health Hospital (Wax, 2019).

9

Implement
A formulated plan needs implementation at this stage.

The implementation ensures all tasks are finished within specified deadlines (Al Thobaity, 2019).

More interventions are planned to mitigate disasters in advance.
The implementation stage is vital after planning that requires collation members to begin the actual plan and strategize to meet specific guidelines. This process involves preparing reports every week to ensure the proper implementation of interventions. The publicity of actionable interventions is also done in this phase to enhance collaborative meetings in Vila health Hospital to assess needs.
10

Track
Track process aims to track goals and objectives of the plan. This step is crucial for the plan’s success.

For example, the hospital can collaborate with a local educational body or a government organization.

The final phase of this framework is the tracking phase that involves tracking the progress of the disaster recovery plan for a given period. Hospital management can also collaborate with entities like a local university or a State Centre to ensure data is tracked effectively. Management evaluates the plan’s progress and whether the goals are SMART or unattainable.
11

Communication can enhance with promoting mutual respect.

Using the clear language and promoting culture of listening (Alshammari, 2018).

The professionals must acknowledge the emotional response of others.
Strategies to Overcome Communication Barriers
Since information sharing during disaster planning is vital, strong communication is indispensable. This is why nurses and all the stakeholders must apply a policy of respecting each other and try their best to improve interpersonal communication between patients and planners. In turbulent times, conveying clear and concise messages in English or other languages is the utmost need. This calls for improving the education and training of listening skills for nurses to help patients and physicians understand their viewpoints (Alshammari, 2018). Another vital part of the disaster management plan is to enhance communication through acknowledging each other’s responses. These strategies have substantial long-term implications regarding improving the proposed communication’s effectiveness.
12

Disaster Recovery or Disaster Management Plan
Needs Assessment
Needs assessment requires conspiring factors such as previous developments and needs of patients.

The stakeholders must decide beforehand the resources and use first-come-first-serve method.

In strategic planning, the disaster recovery plan requires needs assessments of patients by considering their unique circumstances and other factors such as housing, obesity rates, and ages. The observance of people’s current and previous status is another essential factor to consider.

Since in Vila Hospital, there has been a problem of poor disaster mitigation planning before, the staff must ensure this time that resources should be ready and arranged for better outcomes. This strategy aims to empower the staff and management with more substantial disaster management functions. Moreover, it will allow nurses to focus on better care outcomes and reduce injuries during disasters.
13

Data Backup Plan
The sensitive data should be replicated and transferred to virtual systems (Bogdanov, 2020).

The team must identify data that is mission-critical beforehand.

The team must also assess the storage capacity of secondary storages available.

FEMA and other legislations guide management to improve their infrastructure with the following interventions and secure vital medical information. Data of sensitive nature is essential for nurses and physicians at certain times. This data backup plan or strategy is a robust, actionable step to moving or migrating patient data from in-house physical systems to store that on cloud-based virtual servers (Bogdanov, 2020).

Moreover, there is a need for identifying the mission-critical data to improve backup processes, and all necessary medical data should be moved to secondary virtual storage sites

This plan involves using ransomware to restore entire websites and recover without hurdles. Moreover, databases storage and restoration are also planned through using more VM applications and performing failover tests (Wax, 2019).
14

HIPPA Compliance
The HIPPA compliance is vivacious to safeguard patient data and information

HIPPA regulations could assist to avoid data damage (Prakash, 2019).

HIPPA guidlines ought to be followed to avoid health disasters.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) offers the best and most essential rules for nurses and professionals to reduce damages and enhance the safety of data and information. Nurses can follow the HIPPA rules and save patients’ vital data and restore any data after the loss due to strong virtual backup.

Utilization of the HIPAA act guidelines is crucial to safeguard patients’ vital information. Vila management will restore any data after the loss if the backup is stored on virtual cloud servers. The IT managers should adhere to HIPAA rules to ensure data privacy and security at all times.
15

Physical Data Centres and Virtual Servers
The plan is to use only physical data centers where data is stored on cloud-based virtual servers (Tang et al., 2018).

This strategy can help nurses to use tools such as EHR to replace the traditional systems.
The solution of choosing only the latest cloud-based virtual server technology is more viable in the long run for helping doctors and nurses access patients’ vital data in the present and future (Tang et al., 2018).

No data should be stored manually on registers and notebooks using pens and pencils in Vila Health Hospital. According to FEMA and other government guidelines, the new strategy is to use complete Electronic Health Records (EHR) tools to improve the data migration electronically and eliminate the need for paper-based environments (Sasaki, 2020).
