Healthcare Coalitions and Healthcare Facilities

The healthcare community is diverse in emergency management requirements and needs. Whether required by accreditation standards, grant funding requirements, regulatory mandate, healthcare organizations like hospitals, clinics, public health agencies, and other healthcare providers need an emergency operations plan (EOP) they can effectively implement during an emergency to care for the public.

There are many emergency management requirements on hospital as determined by regulatory agencies and grant funding. All Clear’s team has experience with hospital operations, Joint Commission, and DNV accrediting surveys to help your emergency management prepare. We also help with your required plans and exercises.

Public Health
Public health agencies have a responsibility to plan for the health of the community. All Clear works with local, regional, and state public health departments.

Healthcare Coalitions
Grant funding requirements are pushing for the development and maintenance of Healthcare Coalitions. Although Coalitions vary in size and mission, they are an important part in planning for the health and medical response to an emergency. All Clear works with Coalitions to create response plans.

Specialty clinics and primary care clinics are vital to the health of the community and can play an important role in an emergency response. The planners at All Clear have experience developing emergency plans and designing exercises for urban and rural clinics, specialty clinics, and Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs.)

Long Term Care (Assisted Living, Nursing Homes, Home Health, and Hospice):
Individuals living in long-term, acute, and chronic care settings are among the most vulnerable populations during a public health emergency. Therefore, planning for emergencies is important for each agency. All Clear helps agencies create customized plans and training programs to ensure a coordinated response, focused on patient and resident safety.

Specialty Healthcare (Ambulatory Surgical Centers and Dialysis):
Patients in Ambulatory Surgical Centers (ASCs) and patients that require dialysis are patients that can be tremendously impacted during an emergency - either a facility issue or a community-wide event. All Clear lead your facility through a planning process to develop response plans and train your staff on what to do when an emergency occurs.

How All Clear Can Help

All Clear can help your healthcare organization or coalition with these key areas of preparedness.

Accreditation Survey and Audit Preparation
Preparing for accreditation surveys can be a stressful time for an organization. All Clear is familiar with the Joint Commission, DNV, and CMS standards and survey processes. Let us help you get ready for your next survey.

A risk assessment, hazard vulnerability analysis (HVA), or gap analysis is the place to start your planning efforts. All Clear  facilitates a comprehensive assessment to identify your top hazards.

All Clear helps you create customized response plans for your organization. We believe in plans that are practical and useful but that also meet the requirements of accrediting agencies. We guide you through the planning process.

A well-trained staff is vital to an effective emergency response. All Clear designs unique training programs for your staff and your organization. Call us to create your customized program.

The ultimate test of any plan and training program is a properly designed exercise. All Clear’s team of Master Exercise Practitioners (MEP) works with your team to design, conduct, and evaluate response exercises to test and improve your plans.
