The Alabama Nursing Home Association’s “Long-Term Care Preparedness Toolkit” assists with emergency preparedness and disaster planning for the specialized health care population served by long-term care facilities. It’s designed to be used by both management and front-line staff in nursing homes.
Developed by the ANHA’s Life Safety and Physical Plant Committee, the toolkit took more than a year to complete. It updates a plan the ANHA released in 2013. The committee recommends each nursing home form an internal committee from various disciplines to work on the facility’s plan.
The toolkit provides a foundation for an all hazards approach to planning, preparedness and response. It’s a base template nursing homes can customize to meet their unique needs.
