Emergency management requires precise identification and allocation of
staff to align capabilities and capacity with the need to effectively deliver
care for the community. The COVID-19 outbreak caused a substantial
shift in the availability of staff and resources and the accessibility of
timely delivery of care. In response to the evolving needs, organizations
have shifted staff in a variety of ways to ensure they were able to
effectively screen, triage, and care for patients. This panel will provide
strategies and tactics of how their organizations adjusted their staffing
structure to ensure that the most appropriate level of care is delivered
during a medical surge such as the COVID-19.
Topics for Discussion:
- A general debrief and discussion of how different organizations
managed care delivery by reallocating staff to respond to changes
more effectively in patient care due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
- Timeline of events and the challenges with organization
policies/procedures, suspending/adding services, staff safety,
work from home, layoffs, and benefits coordination.
- Key takeaways for the audience to replicate at their organization
