Project Part 3 (MAERB Competencies – XI.C.7; XI.C.8; XI.C.10; XI.C.11; XI.C.12; and XI.C.13): Due Week 10
1. Define fire safety issues in a healthcare environment and the critical elements of an emergency plan for response to a natural disaster or other emergency. Using the information obtained from classroom discussions, assigned readings, and independent research, reflect upon the significance of having an emergency plan in the medical environment and write a brief justification for having an emergency plan. Create an emergency plan that will sufficiently address both the situations in Dr. Carl Smith’s medical office. ? A fire occurs in the office while Dr. Smith is treating patients. ? A tornado is reportedly moving in the direction of the office during office hours.
Explain in a written summary the fundamental principles involved when the evacuation of a healthcare setting is required. Analyze how these principles differ according to the healthcare setting, and compare and contrast the evacuation of a small medical office with that of a large multi-physician ambulatory care center. Explain how you would move patients that are unable to ambulate independently. Include protocols for lifting and for moving large numbers of patients efficiently.
2. Create a chart to illustrate the comparison.
3. Research and identify emergency preparedness plans currently established for three organizations in your community. Provide documentation of your findings in a written report along with a copy of pamphlets/documents from the various organizations. Reflect upon the potential role(s) of the medical assistant in emergency preparedness and indicate particular activities you could perform in an organization’s plan. Why are you qualified to perform these activities? Be sure to identify and properly cite the resources used for your project.
4. Construct a personal life-long learning plan that will allow you to become better prepared to assist in natural disasters and other emergencies in the healthcare setting and community (i.e. volunteer opportunities, additional training and certifications, membership in disaster management organizations, etc.)

Patient with severe bleeding from an open wound ? Patient fainting ? Patient unresponsive, no pulse, and not breathing ? Patient with partial facial paralysis ? Patient with probable broken arm ? Patient with confusion, disorientation and slurred speech ? Patient with severe chest pain ? Patient with an anaphylaxis reaction ? Patient having a seizure ? Patient with a second degree burn
