The COVID-19 pandemic took us all by surprise, but without a doubt affected long-term care organizations to a disproportionate degree. Many of the challenges faced were a result of insufficient planning for the worst-case scenarios - caregiving organizations rushed to design quarantine infrastructure, implement patient care and administrative policies, and gather adequate PPE and other supplies to maintain their resident census. Now that we know the impossible is, in fact, possible, the LTC industry should ensure that procedures are in place for future crises. Debbie Pool of QIPMO will discuss the considerations, best practices, and tools that LTC staff can utilize to craft and maintain effective disaster preparedness policies that ensure the well-being of residents.
