  1. Emergency Preparedness Coordinating Council February 13, 2018

  2. Presentations • Got Gas? Planning For, and Challenges to a Planned Oxygen Shutdown, Jake Neufeld, Enterprise Resiliency Manager, Environmental Health and Safety, Emergency Management, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center • Montefiore’s Use of Technology for System-wide Situational Awareness, Jared Shapiro, Director, Environmental Health and Safety, Montefiore Health System • Takeaways from A Fact-finding Trip to Las Vegas to Learn about Their Response to the October 1st  2017 Mass Shooting

  3. Fact-Finding Delegation Visit to Las Vegas • Purpose: Learn about Las Vegas’ response to the October 1st mass shooting • Organized in collaboration with the Nevada Hospital Association • Who participated: • Nine NYS health systems • Government response agencies including: FDNY, NYPD, OCME, DOHMH, NYCEM, NTSB, Department of State Diplomatic Services • Three Las Vegas hospitals, Las Vegas police and fire agencies, community ambulance companies, Public Health District, Nevada Hospital Association

  4. Las Vegas Context • 18 hospitals in Southern Nevada – 1 Level One, 2 Level Twos and 1 Level 3 Trauma Center • Southern Nevada Health District supports healthcare coalition, oversees HPP funding • With Nevada Hospital Association and hospital emergency managers staffs the Medical Surge Area Command (part of ESF-8 – collects information, coordinates resources) • Accustomed to large planned events; weekend population routinely increases by 400K visitors • Route 91 not considered a large event; security and medical tents; contracted ambulances at event + municipal ambulances pre-staged • Many concert goers were from out of town • Many military and first responders in audience

  5. October 1st Mass Shooting • Shooting began at approximately 10:05pm and lasted 15 minutes • Shooter fired more than 1,100 rounds into festival grounds approx. 490 yards away • Concert goers largely self evacuated • Many had no ID or lost ID while fleeing • Bystander actions saved lives – pulled injured to safety, applied tourniquets (military/first responder training) • Used technology to locate closest hospital; therefore not evenly dispersed • 80% of injured arrived in private vehicles (i.e. Uber, Lyft, private vehicle); many vehicles transported multiple victims at once to hospital • Began arriving at two closest hospitals while shooting still going on • Due to height of shooter, wounds distinct than previous mass shooting events – more head and chest wounds

  6. Three Closest Hospitals

  7. Hospitals Our Delegation Visited

  8. Lessons for the Hospital Community • Arriving patients may be your notification • To victims, a hospital is a hospital • Triage (and re-triage) is EVERYTHING • At curbside, victims split into broad categories based on visual inspection (Alternate ED space, ED, trauma) • Trauma triage was organized by injury, prioritized by talking vs. not talking – focus on airway and hemorrhage control until specialists could take over • Must be prepared to quickly PULL most critical into the hospital to save lives and be ready to receive more victims • Sunrise – quickly created space within critical care units for critical patients; continuously re-triaged and prioritized for OR • Only conducted life-saving procedures in order to turn ORs

  9. Lessons for the Hospital Community (con’t) • Creatively use the space you have • At Sunrise – endoscopy suite became temporary morgue, cafeteria became alternate ED, PACU became holding area for victims needing orthopedic intervention • The uninjured will seek shelter in the early hours of the incident • Clinical staff will spontaneously show up to help, including staff from other facilities • Patient tracking and family reunification is incredibly hard and high consequence • Requires institutional and regional planning

  10. More about Sunrise Hospital Experience • Patient registration/charting was very challenging • Did not have protocol for disaster registration; used paper and delayed registration; took several hours before staff caught up • In initial hours, relied on resupply of items (i.e. chest tubes) from neighboring hospitals • Getting medications from Pyxis system was challenging; required pharmacist or other individual to distribute medications • Implemented forward flow and pulled patients out of ED to create space for incoming patients • 3 ICU areas with 40 patients made space for additional 70 by doubling/tripling up patients • Head/spine trauma went to Neurosurgical ICU • Chest trauma went to Cardiothoracic ICU • Abdominal trauma prioritized for OR/focus on damage control • Orthopedic trauma went to PACU where staged for later surgeries

  11. Regional Follow Up Items • Patient tracking/family reunification • Planned NYCEM-GNYHA workgroup to begin meeting in late Spring • Areas of focus: disaster registration; standard Unidentified Patient naming convention; understanding and integrating hospital and citywide plans and capabilities • Engage TLC and car sharing services • Engage technology companies toward optimizing patient dispersion • Tactical medicine training for regional providers • Working on delegation proceedings document with NHA

  12. Discussions & Updates

  13. Coastal Storm Preparedness: Health and Medical Executive Advisory Group Priority for 2018 Workgroup 1: Improve Health Facility Data & Compliance (Leads: DOHMH & SDOH) • Pursue 100% facility compliance with accurate and timely completion of the NYSDOH Facility Profile application by 3/30/2018 through more intensive and coordinated partner outreach and streamlined facility guidance • NYSDOH completed 3 webinar trainings for HCFs on Facility Profile Application Compliance for 2018. Training was recorded and is posted on the NYSDOH Learning Management System. • Additional opportunities to present and offer training are being identified with our NYC partners, including associations.

  14. Coastal Storm Preparedness: Health and Medical Executive Advisory Group Priority for 2018 Workgroup 2 (Lead: NYCEM) • Increase nursing home facility receiving capacity through targeted technical assistance to large out-of-zone providers. • Holding regular meetings • Aiming to identify and mitigate facility specific barriers such as space, supplies, staff, and financial reimbursement • By July 2nd 2018 complete surge plans for 10 facilities

  15. Coastal Storm Preparedness: Health and Medical Executive Advisory Group Priority for 2018 Workgroup 3 (Lead: GNYHA) • Increase hospital receiving capacity to accept patients from evacuating hospitals as well as community members that cannot be accommodated at Special Medical Needs Shelters (SMNS). • Held first meeting on 2/7; spent much of our time reviewing shelter operations and homebound evacuation plans; need to better educate hospitals on how these operations will work • Workgroup focused on filling existing gap for community members who are too sick for SMNSs, but do not require hospital-level care • Discussion related to a few hospitals developing plans to accept large numbers vs. all hospitals being prepared to accept a few

  16. Texas Hospital Association: Hurricane Harvey Analysis Major findings and opportunities for Texas hospitals to lead improvement initiatives: • Availability and medical readiness of shelter facilities • Inappropriate reliance on hospitals as shelters and evacuation sites • Availability of adequate security • Timely delivery of needed supplies • Access to dialysis services • Communication • Effective use of volunteers • Support services for hospital employees, including behavioral health and emotional support • Coordination of transfers and fatality management

  17. Mass Casualty Response Planning • Draft of MCI Year 1 data summary for NYC 911-receveing hospitals • MCI Response Planning Toolkit for Hospitals under development • Began FDNY Dispatch Center Tours in December; prioritizing trauma centers and then will offer opportunity to all NYC 911-receiving hospitals • Upcoming Medical Preparedness and Response to Bombing Incidents Course; 2-day course will be offered 2x in March • Researching tactical medicine courses

  18. CMS Final Rule on Emergency Preparedness Now in Effect • Compliance date of November 15th • NYS surveyors are integrating emergency preparedness regulations into full surveys following a complaint, and during validation surveys • Surveyors focusing on the presence of various protocols and processes as defined by CMS, but not the quality thereof • Commitment to ongoing dialogue as the survey process begins • Any issues thus far? • Number of resourced developed by GNYHA and others are available here: http://www.gnyha.org/whatwedo/emergency-preparedness/preparedness-communication/cms-final-rule

  19. Sit Stat 2.0 Implementation • GOAL: Build on current Sit Stat platform + increased collaboration within health and medical community to create foundation for a shared situational awareness platform • APPROACH: Provide the Intermedix for Health software bundle (EMResource & eICS) to all NYS members to support daily operations and manage and document emergency incidents. • Emergency Preparedness Bulletin sent to wide range of roles December 21, 2017 • Memo sent to CEOs in January
