We hear about natural disasters that happen all over the country. As a nurse, are we prepared to handle all of this especially if there will be an increase in patients and people to take care of.

@amygarside,
Plan ahead (try to predict the slow days), on these slow days, set up a few emergency training exercises. Involve everyone that's not immediately doing anything vital at the time. Including janitors, security, etc.... Get everyone involved and assign the nonmedically trained personnel minor person/traffic like assignments and have them keep an eye on the lesser of the injured parties while the medically trained triage and take care of the more severe parties.

@amygarside,
This is something that should not be handled on an individual basis other than to do your own emergency planning for yourself and your family.

Emergency response for healthcare workers is best coordinated at the state, county and facility level. Talk with your facility administrator for information regarding their emergency response plans.

@tsarstepan,
I'd suggest getting input from all over, too. Someone might have an idea that proves really useful, e. g. maybe making it so that half of the emergency kits scattered around can float.
