Summer Tourists: Here They Come
Summer travel is here! Families are loading their cars and heading to the beach and to our wonderful National Parks. They are grabbing their plane tickets to jet off to theme parks (and probably hoping the flights aren’t overbooked)!
Speaking of overbooked, is your facility ready for the influx of travelers that could show up in your ER? You may have the bed size to accommodate a busy travel season, but are you staffed appropriately? Chances are you may not be.
Summer Tourists: Is Your Facility Ready?
Let’s consider for a moment that your facility is in a tourist town that, for most of the year, only needs a small number of beds (and thus only needs to be staffed for that small number of beds). Now let’s consider in our example, that a favorite tourist hangout spot causes a high number of cases of foodborne illness due to improper handling of food and your small bed sized facility is suddenly full. Do you have enough providers, nurses, ancillary service personnel that you can call in to fill all of the necessary shifts?
Let’s consider another scenario – maybe you have the bed size AND the appropriate number of staff to handle such emergencies. However, is your staff trained to respond quickly in the event that your facility’s occupancy rate goes from 50% to 90% overnight?
