Develop a disaster recovery plan for the community that will reduce health disparities and improve access to services after a disaster.

In this assessment, you will assume the role of the senior nurse at a regional hospital
who has been assigned to develop a disaster recovery plan for the community using
MAP-IT and trace-mapping, which you will present to city officials and the disaster
relief team.
Before you complete the detailed instructions in the courseroom, first review the full
scenario
and associated data below.
your assessment.
Introduction
For a health care facility to be able to fill its role in the community, it must actively plan not only
for normal operation, but also for worst-case scenarios which could occur. In such disasters, the
hospital’s services will be particularly crucial, even if the specifics of the disaster make it more
difficult for the facility to stay open.
As the senior nurse at the Smallville Regional Hospital, you play a vital role in ensuring the
hospital’s readiness for disasters and its ability to recover from them. The hospital administrator
wants to discuss disaster preparedness and recovery with you. Before the conversation, it
would be helpful to familiarize yourself with the background information on events that have
occurred in Smallville in recent years, including the involvement of the hospital.

November 8, 2022
Smallville, CA – In a tragic turn of events, the northern California town of Smallville was ravaged
by a devastating wildfire on July 6, 2021. The fire, which quickly spread through the town,
destroyed nearly 19,000 structures and claimed the lives of 31 residents. The community is now
faced with the daunting task of rebuilding and recovering from this catastrophic event.
The fire, known as the Blaze, raced into Smallville with unprecedented speed and intensity,
leaving residents with little time to evacuate. Many were forced to flee on foot, seeking refuge in
parking lots and commercial buildings that were never intended to serve as temporary shelters
in a firestorm.
