Healthcare Surge: Skills and Abilities Assessment Tool Mobile App
Although the standby order for flexing the scope of practice will allow any included category of licensed healthcare providers to provide care beyond their current scope of practice, it is recommended that hospitals maintain an inventory of skills/experiences beyond the normal licensing scope for each staff member.
How does it work?
The Healthcare Surge: Skills and Abilities Assessment Tool mobile app is designed to facilitate that inventory and assist staffing coordinators at hospitals plan and allocate personnel resources during a healthcare surge. As part of the Hospital Emergency Management Plan, hospital planners should complete a skills inventory of existing staff and pre-registered volunteers to identify staff with experiences, skills or competencies beyond their licensed capacity that may be useful during a healthcare surge. This inventory can help the facility's Medical Director quickly make use of the standby order above and assign staff to particular patients or duties during an emergency by providing detailed information on staffing skills. Understanding the abilities of staff during an emergency will enable better decisions on what tasks should be performed by each staff member.
