Fire Safety, Drills and Staff Response in Assisted Living & Skilled Nursing

May 15, 2019

10:00 to 11:30AM

1 CE for NHA, Nurses, CEAL

Program

No one expects to have a fire, but they occur nearly every day. What?s even more unknown to many is the fire response and evacuation plans. Every facility must have written fire procedures that are understood and practiced by all staff. Fire drills are an integral part of all fire safety programs and staff must be periodically be instructed in the proper procedures for emergency response including resident relocation and/or evacuation.

One of the most frequently cited deficiencies for nursing homes and assisted living facilities by the Ohio Department of Health is the failure to correctly plan, conduct or execute the required fire drills. The purpose of a fire drill is to test and evaluate the efficiency, knowledge, and response of personnel in implementing the facility fire emergency plan. By scheduling regular fire drills, your company can plan for a potential fire and prepare employees rapid and appropriate response. It?s good to remember the ?Seven P?s?: Proper prior planning and preparation prevents poor performance.

Proper planning, training, and practice of all staff are essential in order to provide for the safety of residents. It is important for staff to know that patient safety is their number one priority.

1. Discuss Ohio long term care facility licensure for nursing homes and residential care facilities requiring fire safety and drills
