Emergency and disaster preparedness are topics of increasing importance to all healthcare organizations. A midsize hospital along Florida’s Atlantic cost wants to establish a comprehensive plan for responding to natural disasters and other major emergencies within its organization, as well as within surrounding communities, the state of Florida, and the Atlantic coast.
1-What internal constituents need to be involved?
2-What external organizations/agencies should be involved?
3-How should the hospital organize all the various internal and/or external parties into teams?
4-What sorts of team structures should the hospital put in place to achieve these goals?
Remember, they need to organize themselves (internal) AND develop a structure to coordinate with the community (internal with external)!
Your answer must identify a specific organizational structure (functional, divisional, matrix) and must identify which internal and external people and organizations should be involved. In other words, based on your original post, I should have the details necessary to draw a chart resembling the Figures presented in Chapter 3.
Think about this carefully. Think about the people/jobs in a hospital’s organizational chart. Be specific.
Incorporate course terminology and concepts.
