1 Hospital Incident Command System Module 7 National Incident Management System: Compliance Activities for Hospitals and Healthcare Organizations

2 Hospital Incident Command System Define the National Incident Management System (NIMS) Discuss the purpose of NIMS Describe the role of the NIMS Integration Center (NIC) Understand the 17 elements found in the compliance guidance for hospitals and healthcare organizations Outline how NIMS education can be obtained Module 7: Objectives

3 Hospital Incident Command System Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD-5 ) (1) Management of domestic incidents Directed the Department of Homeland Security to develop and administer NIMS –A consistent nationwide template Federal, state, local and tribal governments Private sector Nongovernmental organizations –Applicable across all hazards of all size and complexity –Improve coordination and cooperation

4 Hospital Incident Command System Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD-5 ) (2) Management of Domestic Incidents –Requires all Federal departments and agencies to adopt NIMS –State and local organizations must adopt NIMS as a condition of Federal preparedness assistance (FY 2005)

5 Hospital Incident Command System NIMS Incident Management Structure Establishes framework for: –Incident Command System (ICS) –Multi-Agency Coordination System (MACS) –Public Information System (PIS)

6 Hospital Incident Command System NIMS Integration Center (NIC) Division of the Department of Homeland Security Has five operating branches Role of the NIC: –Coordinate development, revision and distribution of NIMS information –Facilitate development of NIMS materials –Develop national standards, guidelines and protocols for Incident Management training and exercises Collaborates with the Emergency Management Institute to present training and education courses

7 Hospital Incident Command System NIMS Implementation Activities for Hospitals Similar to expectations placed on government agencies Consists of seven categories and seventeen elements The Hospital Emergency Incident Command System-Version IV (HEICS IV) incorporates NIMS terminology, principles and practices

8 Hospital Incident Command System Category I. Organization Adoption Element 1 - Adoption of NIMS at all organizational levels –Implementation Guidance Plan for full implementation A Phased in approach National Bioterrorism Hospital Preparedness Program (BHPP) outlines implementation elements

9 Hospital Incident Command System Category II. Command and Management (1) Element 2 - Manage incidents in accordance with the Incident Command System –Incident Action Planning –Communication Planning Element 3 - Multi-Agency Coordination (MAC) –Integrate with Local Emergency Operations Centers (EOC) 911 Centers State EOCs

10 Hospital Incident Command System Element 4 - Public Information System (PIS) –Timely and accurate communication through Joint Information System (JIS) and Joint Information Center (JIC) Category II. Command and Management (2)

11 Hospital Incident Command System Category III. Preparedness Planning (1) Element 5 - NIMS implementation activities tracking done annually as part of Emergency Management Program (EMP) Element 6 - Develop and implement system to coordinate preparedness funding –Address local, state and federal funding –Demonstrates that funding commitments are met

12 Hospital Incident Command System Element 7- Revise and update plans to incorporate NIMS –Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) –Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) Element 8- Participate in and promote mutual aid agreements with –Private sector –Governmental agencies –Nongovernmental agencies Category III. Preparedness Planning (2)

13 Hospital Incident Command System Category IV. Preparedness Training (1) Hospital personnel in a leadership role should complete –Element 9: Independent Study (IS) 700 Introduction to NIMS –Element 10: IS 800 Introduction to NRP –Element 11: ICS 100 and 200 Introduction to ICS Basics of ICS

14 Hospital Incident Command System Category IV. Preparedness Training (2) IS 700- Introduction to NIMS –Who should be trained: Personnel likely to assume an incident command position described in the hospitals emergency management plan IS 100/200- Introduction to and Basic ICS –Who should be trained: Personnel who have a direct role in emergency management, middle management, or incident management and /or emergency response

15 Hospital Incident Command System Category IV. Preparedness Training (3) IS 800- Introduction to the National Response Plan –Who should be trained: Individual(s) responsible for Emergency Management Plan The hospital makes a deliberate decision on which personnel complete which coursework –Hospitals must track the training completed

16 Hospital Incident Command System Training Resources (1) Online –EMI – –New courses forthcoming for hospital personnel –Can download the information In the classroom –EMI in Emmittsburg Maryland –www. training.fema.gov/emiweb

17 Hospital Incident Command System Training Resources (2) Other approved or equivalent coursework –Check with the NIC HICS training materials includes information on ICS 100 and 200, IS 700, and IS 800

18 Hospital Incident Command System Category V. Preparedness Exercises Element 12 - Incorporate NIMS into all trainings and exercises Element 13 - Participate in all hazard exercise program involving multiple partners Element 14 - Incorporate corrective actions into plans and procedures

19 Hospital Incident Command System Category VI. Resource Management Element 15 - Maintain inventory of response assets Element 16 - Resource acquisition according to relevant national standards and guidance to achieve interoperability

20 Hospital Incident Command System Category VII. Communications Element 17 - Apply standard and consistent terminology –Internally –With external partners –Use plain English

21 Hospital Incident Command System NIMS Fact Sheets Intended to be informative and helpful in understanding the NIMS implementation activities Standardized format –Element –Association to NIMS –Implementation guidance –Implementation examples –References

22 Hospital Incident Command System NIMS Value to Hospitals Promote self assessment and institutional improvement Facilitate collaboration with community response partners Improved standardization and interoperability Hospitals may already meet the NIMS elements or be in progress

23 Hospital Incident Command System Additional Resources Documents –FEMA website –Contact FEMA at Press option 4 Ask for FEMA 501: National Incident Management System NIMS Integration Center –Phone Number:

24 Hospital Incident Command System NIMS Compliance for Hospitals: Timelines Implementation Guidance –Plan for full implementation –A Phased in approach –The National Bioterrorism Hospital Preparedness Program (NBHPP) will Provide guidance on hospital implementation elements and timelines Phased in over the two federal fiscal years – –

25 Hospital Incident Command System Consequences of NIMS Noncompliance Will not realize the value of NIMS –Improve institutional preparedness –Develop a relationship with local healthcare systems and other emergency management agencies –Gain further insight about training along with response capabilities (equipment and procedures) Could impact eligibility for future federal funding

26 Hospital Incident Command System NIMS implementation activities for hospitals include five categories and seventeen elements Hospitals will implement the NIMS activities in a phased in approach –Full implementation expected over 2 years NIMS principles and elements will improve hospital –Preparedness –Training –Exercises –Response Review: Module 7 Key Points
